I got up around 530 to hear a silent generator. I went out and got more gas, a coffee, and the papers. The New York Times covered the City hard, not so much in New Jersey. They ran some Reuters pics from Asbury Park. I hate when that happens. Makes you feel like you failed, or just suck. But that's the good news.
My sister warned me that Irene came through the North Country in a big way.
