I spent hours on Madison Ave watching people go through changes as it got dark wondering if I should go ahead and walk or not the 6 or so miles home. I ended up walking most of the way to Jackson Heights, Queens. Have tender feet now. Calloused and tender. My work shoes are fairly comfy and supportive but 40 pounds of tools gave me extra workout. Although I know some people really can't take the heat or lack of subways, in some ways this is just another subject for the 9/11 trinket industry to capitalize upon. Oh, yes, and for the power companies and regulatory bodies to finally respond to all the warnings that resulted from the California power issues that occured a few years a go.
