This was the last paragraph of my post yesterday:
“I am going to the game at MSG tomorrow. Unless something happens. And why have I come to expect something to happen?”
That was written from West Point. Since then, I had a horrific ride back from West Point, driving through flooded roads that looked like lakes, weaving to avoid falling and fallen trees, having to turn back and take at least seven or eight detours because of closed roads.
I get home, no electricity, nothing. Pitch black, pouring rain, and I have to move this small tree out of my driveway to get in. So I manage to get in the house, trembling, and all I hear all night is trees falling. Sure enough, when daylight comes, there are four huge trees in my driveway. So now I can’t even get my car out. No electricity. Which means no water (we have well water). No internet. No cable. No telephone. My cell phone barely works at home. No wireless signal.
So I bummed a ride downtown from a neighbor so I could get this signal and tell you that something happened, as expected ,and I won’t be going to the game today. I won’t be watching the game. And unless there’s some miracle with the pathetic radio stations that carry Rangers games, I wont’ be listening to the game. Or following it online.
I’ll be sitting at home in the dark. Fun. Did anybody else get hit particularly hard by this freakin’ storm?
Anyway, this might be your game thread, unless Laurel jumps in, or unless I figure a way to get a signal later on. Oh, my laptop battery is low, too. We have a generator, but I’m saving the gas for tonight and for the next several days, because it’ll be a while before we’re up and running here. So I can’t even power up the laptop until tonight.
