Blackout

The NYC area is recovering from the huge blackout. Where I am living (Central NJ), we were not really effected by the blackout. There was a “brown out” when all the power went down around 4:15PM on Thursday but then everything turned back on and it was as usual. The weird thing was that I was planning on visiting friends in NYC that evening as a friend was in town from Singapore. I thought about traveling into NYC early that day, but decided against it. I am sooooo glad I did not travel in early, because I would have been stuck in NYC. Literally “Escape from NY“. The video footage of the people waiting to board the NY/NJ ferry was insane, as were the photos of people sleeping on the steps of the US Post Office on 34th Street (Opposite MSG). Overall, I am very happy that I decided to stay around a little longer, because I would not have been happy to be stuck in NYC. I think this is one of my biggest problems with the NYC area…the fact that if something goes wrong, it can cause a near riot and a completely unfathomable situation. Is it really worth it?
