Hurricane Sandy: Seeking Civilization

Posted by Ta-metru_defender , in Hurricane Sandy Nov 01 2012 · 168 views

Day 4. Most of the residents of the building fled yesterday when the generator ran out of gas. Emergency power is back now, but the building is deserted. We survivors have found power and plumbing in the deserted floors beneath us. This is a luxury.
Once more we are setting out in search of food and potential entertainment in the mysterious land known as 'Uptown'.
Weather remains chilly, no sign of wolves.


I'm really in survival mode now. My backpack has my laptop, a surge protector, and chargers for my phone and laptop in it. I've also got a pair of Field Dressings I kept from the army and a few other bits and pieces. On my belt I have my flashlight and SOG powerlock knife (both from the army). Also been wearing my boots. Man, this is the time all the army stuff comes in handy.

We've begun scavenging. Sort of. The floors below ours (13th floor, man) have water (7th) or limited electricity (10th). We've been taking advantage of the latter to charge and the former to well, enjoying plumbing. Those floors are deserted so it's fair game. It's all I Am Legend up in here.

My ragtag band of survivors decided to make a trek uptown. Suddenly we were surrounded by working traffic lights, lit stores, friggin' civilization.

We made our way to Times Square and ate a wonderful, hot, cooked, proper, wonderful meal at a Ruby Tuesday's. Talked rubbish, chilled, and eventually headed back downtown to our dorms and NYU's campus.

There's some soirée thing going on in Bobst Library, but we're just sitting around and chilling. Maybe tomorrow we'll explore more. For now, well, we can relax.

Hmm.

One of my professors wants us to email her our papers that were due on Monday. About that...

No sign of wolves? I thought Chols was going to drop by, guess not. Also essay or survival is a tough choice, because one day you'll find a village where your professor is worshipped. And then she'll recognize you but you won't your essay, thus you'll be banished from the village. So choose wisely.
