Uber came through. Slight tunnel traffic but nothing murderous.

I'll tell you the BS. Cops sitting in their cars on Columbus near the intersection of Columbus and Marin where the lights didn't work. He sat IN his car and on a loud speaker from the car said, "slow down", "slow down". People IN their cars? Windows closed? Couldn't hear him AND it was the pedestrians who were having trouble navigating the streets without any order to the vehicles. The police officer could have exited his car (sorry it was cold out officer....) and navigated traffic and/or pedestrians. Lazy, lazy, lazy.

Yes I do.

OK then. How many megawatts will they need, to generate power for the trains and the stations? Let's just say NJ side -- Exchange, Newport, Grove, JSQ, Harrison, Newark.

Will it be an actual power station? Will it be up and ready all the time? Will it be connected to the grid? Where will they build it?

It caused a transformer fire. I think that provides your answer. Poor raccoon.

Not sure if she has a smartphone. Ny waterway has an app that allows you to buy a ticket. Something similar happened two winters ago. Tix line was ridiculous but the app worked just fine. I left it on my phone and it was convenient tonight.

If she can't get a cab, it looks like she isn't going to have a choice but to wait.

Kind of reminds her of her commute right after Sandy.

Unfortunately, she is down at WTC. I just told her to take a cab if one is available. The place is chaos right now. NY Waterway just ran out of tickets.

Generally when she has tried to take Port Authority buses or Jitneys during a major PATH outage, it doesn't go well. Too many people trying to do the same thing.

Cab drivers will probably extort more than they already do given these circumstances.

Thankfully my part of the Heights is still energized.

Trying to figure out how to get my wife back from NYC right now. The line for NY Waterway is a mile long.
