Few things scare me. Hurricane Sandy scared me. The last time I got as scared as Monday night was when I heard a rumor that Anne Murray was coming out with a new CD. I lost power just before 8:00PM Monday night. During that time, I heard three trees crash to the ground and a howling wind like I had never heard before. I regained power at 12:30AM, but the surge killed my old computer. Below is a timeline of how the rest of my week went:
- Tuesday – I had no phone service and no internet to watch Roku. Cable TV was working, but only a few stations were up. (Two shopping networks, two Spanish networks, and WPIX.)
- Wednesday – The rest of the networks came back online. News was showing all of the flooding in Queens, Manhattan, and Long Island. Finding a gas station that was opened and had gas was harder to find than a needle in a haystack.
- Thursday – The news stations started showing footage from the Jersey Shore. The “Habitat for Hotties” house I helped build in 2008 was demolished by Sandy.
- Friday – Spent most of the day battling Montezuma’s Revenge. I found out later in that there was a water advisory since Tuesday and that I was supposed to be boiling my drinking water. I only mentioned it because Governor Chris Christie mentioned it during a hurricane recovery update.
- Saturday (Today) – My computer finally arrived. I am still trying to figure out Windows 8. My last computer had Vista as the operating system. Gas rationing is now in effect with “odd-even days” depending on the last number on the license plate. I am odd.
I will not be participating in this year’s “Orgies for Abstinence due to the hotel it was to be held at needs the room for Sandy refugees from the coast. I will instead be celebrating my election victory with close friends.
