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.

Yea I think the east coast got lucky on this one. With the two storms merging, this could have gone a lot worse.

Hope everyone is safe and warm.

This comment section may become the biggest ever. What's the record again, 800 something?

Let's break it.

Hope you get power back soon, Blue! (I hope everyone gets their power back soon.... And who knows, maybe SOMEDAY the energy companies of America will decide to stop using shitty-ass powerlines ABOVE THE FUCKING GROUND.)

Imagine how bad it would have been if Sandy had been a Cat. 5. All in all, it could have been much worse. I think New York and the rest of the east coast in general didn't dodge the bullet, but they only got grazed by it...

Truth. We got 'near missed' by Cyclone Yasi a few years ago (cat 5), missed us by a couple of hundred kilometres and we still had 180km/h winds... = |

Stay safe folks and best wishes!

Yep, stay safe. Looks like the worst of the weather is over.

Here in Harlem we still have power and there is no flooding, and my lab at Mount Sinai Hospital (100th St) is ok. Downtown is bad - whole areas below 39th Street underwater. NYU hospital is down with no power and 10 feet of water in the generator room, Coney Island Hospital down, subways flooded, traffic tunnels flooded.

It could be worse but it's a hell of a mess.
