Thank you for thinking of me, but there's only so much that I can absorb,
and a Polish-language video about Anders Army is probably a bridge too far,
as the British officer said of General Montgomery in Operation Market
We lost power for four days, but now that is fairly typical, or better than
most. Thirty years ago when we built this house, power outages happened
every three years or so and lasted for three days. Now they happen once or
twice a year and tend to last for a week! So two years ago we installed a
generator that runs the house except for heat and hot water, and now I am
pondering how to get the hot water onto the generator circuit. Sally doesn't
like to take sponge baths!
I find the hurricane coverage rather amusing. It seems to me that television
and newspapers give Sandy far more coverage than they do for the ordinary
hurricane, because they were hit head-on by it! It's rather like the
definition of a recession/depression: Recession is when your neighbor is out
of work, Depression is when you are out of work....
Similarly, to judge by the media, a truly tragic storm is one in which New
Yorkers lose their cell phone signal!
take care - Dan
