This was taken on the fifth day of the blackout. Estimated 25,000 people without electricit, which quickly grew to 100,000. Channel 7 news was interviewing irate people at my subway stop at Ditmars. The red cross came in to hand out foot, water, and ice. The place feels like a ghost town. Stores and bodegas that used to light up the streets, and restaurants that hosted diners al fresco are now dark and empty.

Finally got power back! Ten days total without power. It is so nice to be watching my tv again!
