Our cable is still out, but we've got power which is EXTREMELY lucky because a lot of our neighbors don't and about 57% of the town is without power. I'm listening to 106.1 right now, and instead of regular programing they're reaching out to Long Islanders to pass along information about power outages and power restoration. It's a brilliant idea. One person called in to report that she and her neighbors don't have power or access to a phone because their phone lines now rely on downed cable or fiber optic networks. I hope that power is restored as quickly as possible, it's sad to leave home while it's in such disarray.
On a related note, I'm really going to miss this place. I love listening to New Yorkers talk--it's familiar and it makes me feel at home. My grandparents took me to breakfast this morning at a local Greek diner. I love Greek diners, their menus usually have everything under the sun and are typically open 24/7. It's practically impossible to find a diner in the LA area, so I know that there's no way I'll be able to find one in Hong Kong.
