Storm Update From Jackson Heights

In this part of the city, Hurricane Irene has been a bit of a bust — so far.  It has been raining hard and the winds are beginning to pick up but, thankfully, the hurricane has felt more like a conventional northeaster than some kind of über storm from the tropics.

We shall see; the next few hours will tell whether the subways flood and widespread power outages cripple the city.  There are some tree limbs on our street that could come down — hopefully not on my car.  But for now at least, it is just another quiet morning of blogging at the stately Mead manor in glamorous Queens.
