By the end of the day, my one client was emailing me -- "that was me that just called; save your 75 cents."
So this is the 86th St Subway station. The pillars, of course, are on the platform and the yellow line is the edge of the platform. To the left of the yellow line is where the train comes and I'd guess it's about four feet high so this is a lot of water to come this far uptown.
The devastation really is hard to imagine. Today at lunch, I put a load of laundry in, made a grilled cheese sandwich and then started the dishwasher. I was mindful of how lucky I am to be able to do these simple tasks and quite grateful.
What would be so difficult for, and what is so difficult for people, is that there aren't even estimates of when they'll get power back. Buses are running again, but not the subway. My helper was supposed to come today and she would have arrived via subway so we have rescheduled for next week.
