Goodnight Irene

While slightly worried, I was mostly giddy about Irene’s arrival. My plan was to go to bed early so I could be awake in the morning, but upon turning on the channel two news, Lonnie Quinn and his knowledge had me wanting to stay up all night. He has already earned a GotY 2011 nomination.

This is 2nd Street around 8:15P Saturday Night

Walked over to the 96th street exit of the FDR Drive. Nice big puddle there.

The city sewers are working overtime. Sure this could be any street corner in the city

Many places on 1st Ave have flooded basements. Not good for business

For the first time in history, the Subway system was shut down in NYC. As of Sunday morning, they were understandably still closed.

Lastly, a slideshow from Sunday Morning around 9:45AM
