Back On the Air

Email This Entry

Posted by Derek

Over here to the west of Boston, we had a real storm - downed tree branches all around my neighborhood, power outages - but fortunately nothing like what they had further south of here, starting in Connecticut and really picking up in New York and New Jersey. So it's back to work, on the somewhat-delayed MBTA, and back to blogging on the train! I hope that readers on the East Coast made it through OK (and people on towards the Great Lakes, too, since I see that this is hitting in Cleveland and Detroit as well). What a mess.

Measurable snow here in central OH, and lots of wind but nothing major (no or not many downed trees). Hoping my brother's apartment didn't burn down, though. It's good that your family got through OK.

The Indianapolis area got wind, and not much else. The skies have been overcast and gray, but every day at a pharmaceutical plant feels that way, so really nothing changed!

Glad to see you're ok. Looks like even NJ and NY dodged the absolutely worst of it, compared to what could have been.

I have to say though that discussing this event, both leading up to it and during it, has raised a few questions with me regarding "geek" culture and mindset and how those differ between europe and north america...

Nekekami, I'd be interested in hearing you elaborate on those questions, if you have time!

Hmmm, let me gather my thoughts for a bit... Want it here in this thread, or in an email?

Indiana was high wind, cold, and some drizzle. Glad you're okay!

Nekekami, whichever you feel most comfortable with.

Very lucky at my place, we never lost power. Many of my colleagues at BMS sites in CT and NJ still don't have power. A quarter mile South of me several trees hit power lines. Right now about eight trucks with the logos of various utility companies are there, working under floodlights.
