The city is in a tizzy over Hurricane Irene. A co-worker went out at lunch to buy a flashlight, 4 stores later not a one in sight. Friends are pinging left and right to find out if they should make plans to evacuate now or wait and see until tomorrow. Bloomberg has alerted the masses that MTA service will be suspended as of tomorrow at noon. I checked the crisis map and we are a block northwest of the flooding danger area in Zone C--which will only see issues if Irene turns itself into a category 4 hurricane. And as long as I have access to electricity and a signal know that I'll be posting updates from the front.
