Now that this has been said.
I wasn't really expecting it and was planning for the worst. But New York is the best city in the world and if anyone can dig out (or pump out) of a mess quickly it is New York.
A few notes about this mess:
1. Cory Booker is a bad ass.
There isn't much to say about that besides the fact that he is just in fact a bad ass. He opened his home to anyone who needs help. He is calling grandmothers to talk. He is also saving puppies from burning buildings. He is the perfect example of leadership and calm.
2. Chris Christie is a strong leader.
I don't like his politics or his style but in this case he is doing a great job and understands the bigger picture. His work with and praise of an arch rival such as President Obama is telling to his character. I still would never vote for the man but it is nice to see.
3. WOW what a mess. And I am SHOCKED this race is still on.
But I am very happy it is on. It might be a great day for the city and it might be a drain on resources, but whatever it is, it will be and it will be one hell of a story.
4. As always people are good.I will update as we learn more about our beloved city. Wish us luck.
The extension cord pictures. The adding people to cars to get into the city. The offers of bunking up. We live in a great country and we should be proud of how we are working through this.
