WOW! WHAT A STORM! KNOCKED OUT OUR POWER ON MONDAY AND WE DID NOT GET IT RESTORED UNTIL LATE FRIDAY! NO electricity, heat, internet, cell service for FIVE days! Man, what you take for granted!
ALL of Port Washington and MOST of Nassau County was in the dark ALL that time! Huge trees down all over, on power lines, lawns, crushing fences, uprooted oaks, branches everywhere. We finally found ONE bagel store open in town running off a generator... took most of an hour in a LONG line to get some hot coffee and a bagel!
We had cold nights, a lot of candlelit card games, and reading books by cool flashlights given to us in old Christmas stockings from a very cool dude! Thanks! Man, the times when it is a great asset to maintain a sense of HUMOR!
AND... my show was to open the day AFTER the storm in the city... needless to say the ENTIRE week was a wash... NO power in downtown NYC... I did take a train in to NYC to check on my show... power had just come back to our building (Saturday) and I was able to put finishing touches on my show... AFTER hiking up four flights of stairs! (NO elevator service!)
For those reading my blog... I will open my show this coming Tuesday, the 6th! AND my reception will be November 10th, from 3 to 6pm! If you are able to come, DO check out the show, and joIn us at the reception... the show runs through until November 24th!
Wow! What an omen for a show!
