Sandy has come and gone. For all of you who are familiar with the Daria musical, the Big Wet Rainstorm's over. (For now.)

We never lost power. Our internet went out for about 35 minutes, but we never lost the cable or anything else.

We live in a heavy, brick pre-war building that's well-maintained. I barely even heard the wind. (Although [ profile] dotfic said she didn't hear any of the low howling wind sounds that I heard during Irene. Or any other windy day.)

We are extremely fortunate. Right now, I know that [ profile] quasisonic, her husband, and my parents are without power. So are many friends. [ profile] j_bkl and I are just chilling, watching the news and following twitter closely. Just like last night. I have to say, social media is excellent in times like this. I remember when I was a kid, the best way to get updates were to hope your phone was working, and/or head outside for a minute to try and talk to your neighbors.

So, like most of you who don't live in the city, we've been sitting here watching the news, aghast at the devastation. And waiting to hear what's going on. Subway tunnels are flooded, as are many streets. I have no clue when or how I'm getting back to work. That's about all for now. Let me know how you're doing. I've mostly been using FB and Twitter and Tumblr to keep in touch, but hey, might as well use the LJ too to see if anyone's out there.

I'm very pleased to hear you're OK, honey. I've been thinking of you.

Don't suppose you've heard from/about [ profile] antheia?

Thanks!! We're all okay here, thankfully.

And [ profile] antheia is also fine. She's snug at home with her cat and her cat's kittens, and as far as I know, also didn't lose power or internet. (Neither did her sister and her brother-in-law and Nieces). We all got off really lucky.

That's great news, thanks :)
