Out of the Blue

Well I'm sorry to say the BlueTower is black thanks to Sandy. We lost power overnight, and I don't have an estimate of when to expect it to return, though historically they tend to be pretty quick at restoring electricity after outages here. Otherwise we are fine, and hope all the rest of you are equally safe. I don't picture being able to update the site through my phone, so I'm afraid I'm offline for the time being. Apologies, hopefully this will all be sorted soon enough.

BTW, looks like front page is down except for the 1 entry, but its still possible to click on one's name and find threads posted in to see if they've been updated.

On a side note, is there an easier way to see what threads have new posts in them? A way that doesn't involve me getting lots of email?

No wonder they don't have power. 6 feet of seawater and electric transformers, yeah, that's not a good mix.


Glad to hear the Blue Tower weathered the storm. My sister lives close to the city, and they had a few trees down, but nothing bad. My in-laws live on LI, and they got pounded. Garage, down. Shed, down. Fence, down. Luckily nobody was hurt and the house is mostly undamaged.

We are far enough upstate that we got some wind and rain, but nothing really bad. No power loss.

Whoops, meant to hit edit, but accidentally quoted.

Isn't the next event California sliding off into the pacific?

California is a big place. I also have some desert property (near Palm Springs) that is waiting to become beach front (aka Lex Luther Plan) if the natural disaster ever does happen.

Its also not over, I hear that multiple feet of snow are likely to be coming to many areas as the air patterns are disrupted.

Anyway, thanks blue!

A good occasion to say THANK YOU for all the job done in the last years. I don't miss out a day to visit here (ok, it could happen).

When it all began?

Just saw Bloomberg saying NYC may be out of power for the next 2 or 3 days. Dunno if that'll affect you guys but thought I'd pass it along in case everyone in that area hadn't heard yet.

Welp, looks like the weatherguys actually got it right. It's windy as hell around here right now and some poor woman got killed by a sign that got ripped off a business by it. So keep your heads down and stay safe folks!

Good to know that a power outage is the only issue you've had in the storm, Blue. You deserve the day off.

Perfect time go to water rafting down your own street. Get an inner tube and snap to it.
