Went into work at 6:30 this morning....saw a few patients and we decided to close early (I’m on Long Island). We also decided to open late tomorrow, at noon, for emergencies.

Looks like I’m not going in tomorrow. Anywho, I came home and my computer was off,but was not an electric failure (clocks not blinking). Looks like cable. So I went to turn on my computer and it was just beeping and NOT working!

My wonderful landlords got a new laptop and they said I could have their old one (this one), once they cleaned it up.

I called the wife and begged for a favor...if I could borrow this laptop until I can get my computer fixed. She is so wonderful she gave it to me in a heartbeat.

I could NOT imagine not having access to FR, or Rush....WABC still has whore-aldo on covering the storm instead of Rush on radio.

I’ll be plugged in until we lose power (hopefully not). Bottom line....there ARE still many a good soul out there.

She also told me if we do lose electric, they have plenty of food and wine and have a wood burning stove, so I can always go up and heat up my food.

I didn’t take this seriously until today. I also found a place to park so the dead trees around here do not destroy my truck!

Is FR REALLY slow or is it just me?
