    that's pretty bad, and the timing couldn't be worse with all the political drama going on. hope they can recover like japan did, or the east coast seems to be screwed. would rather not see a new orleans v2.

    Thoughts are with those on the East Coast. Stay safe and hopefully power will be restored soon. What's going to take a really long time IMO is the subway system to get back working well. Being flooded with salt water is not good, not good at all.

    They're more centralized so probably slightly better (excluding the whole "poor" bit...obviously they have a harder time :(). America is a pretty large country, I always forget how big it is until I try to compare it to another continent.

    depends on where you are in the city. I am staying 10 min away from JFK and I haven't had any issues at all. No power loss, no internet loss, shops are open, roads have been dry since yesterday, few fallen trees once every 5 blocks if any. I went to work in Long Island on Monday (half day) and Wednesday. I drive 40 miles one way for work and all has been fine. Lot of people staying on LI do not have power though. And getting into Manhattan is a real epic pain.

    All depends on where you are. Some people have lost a lot unfortunately but its nothing on the scale of 'day after tomorrow'. Its amazing how people and the authorities are bringing up the city again. Be safe everyone.

    My boss was up by you today he said it was overwhelming effected area

    That sucks about the power,around here still power out for 2/3 of the people.
    Gas? you kidding? lines like the mid 70's out the wazu(3-4 hr wait) and all gas stations that do have Gas/power have to have them under POlice all the time since tempers flair easy around here.
    the guys at work filled up the gas caddies we have, down south jersey with no waits..so i took some to drive to work and back (1/2 mile total) till next week when it gets sorta normal

    Just take it slow safe you will get there and hope you get back to normal soon.

    The 680's can wait
    just use mine if you want i told you already,that boost crap gets old fast :)
