NO RATINGS
Thanks, Frank. After having sat at home for 48 hours, I told myself, "OK, time to get out and explore." No sane reporter should sit in front of a computer for more then two days! So I picked up my camera, walked all the way to NYC, talked to a few people in Lower Manhattan including police officers, surprised to find that even a hotel lobby had no lights. With no traffic lights, no traffic, it was really a quiet Manhattan today. And people were kind. The only problem I had was I couldn't find a bathroom. (Even a well-known big hotel wouldn't let me use their bathroom because I am NOT their guest.) I ended up at a coner deli run by a Korean guy. His whole store was dark, and I am not certain if he was open for business. But he gave me his flash light and let me use his bathroom. Whew!

Wow Junko, what a welcome home! I'm glad to hear you and the rest of the EE Times staff are ok. I have several friends in NJ that are still without power, but have been in touch with another friend there who is running the basics like his refrigerator with a generator. I was shocked he was able to make a cell phone call, but that's about it. His cable TV & wired internet are out and the cellular network is too clogged to handle much data. So voice & text is it for now. Best wishes to all affected and I hope they get the power -- and the subways -- back up & running soon.
