Blogging in the Dark

Our neighborhood has pulled together, though the cold and sleeplessness is a very personal thing, as we worry about our children, pets, homes.
A bonfire block party to help the children celebrate a Halloween that never came. A generator in one home fueling iphones lined up like soldiers waiting for the call. email chains to inform those who live alone about the status of a Century oak that now lies on four live wires, or where a store or restaurant is open.
We want school to open Monday to give kids structure and a warm place to play. I watched with envy and relief as the lights came on in Lower Manhattan.
I think it’s our turn now, don’t you?
We have limited power here. To those who have asked us to post your news: Benefit tonight at the Watercolor Cafe, libraries open until 9 pm, power returning slowly to lower Westchester, we apologize for the quick post.
