Yesterday at this time...
NYC had a great and functioning subway system.
I was leaving for New Orleans in three days.
My friends' beach community stood between a bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
The subway system...this is the nightmare that those of us in transportation dreaded. If the equipment gets soaked in salt water it doesn't function. There's no estimate when the system will operate again.
I'm not going to New Orleans. I had pretty much decided my heart wasn't into it. It's hard to be care free when you have many cares. Delta sealed my decision when it canceled my flight. I am disappointed, but it's just not the time.
We're not sure about my friends' house, but when you see the photos of the fire at Breezy Point, that's the place I visited two Sundays ago, with the cute street of houses. We are heart-sick.
Thanks for the prayers, affection and concern. They mean the world to all of us in New York.
