DAY TWO In Manhattan, the sun is rising but the lights are still out.


Commuters sleep on the steps of the Post Office on 33rd Street and Eighth Avenue in New York during the early hours of Friday, after being stranded by the city's electrical blackout.


A huge power failure swept through parts of the Northeast, Midwest and Canada on Thursday, shutting down trains, subways and airports from New York City to Detroit, forcing people into the streets.


At the ferry terminal on west 38th St., thousands of people without access to the subways and trains flocked to catch ferries, creating another form of gridlock.


Passengers on the downtown A train were stuck underground for two hours before being led out by MTA employees.


Waterway buses to Weehawken were filled to capacity.


Transit workers escorted riders off a subway car on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.


Pedestrians clogged the Brooklyn Bridge as the power outage brought life to a standstill.


Dozens of people at the Lincoln Tunnel jumped on a truck to get a ride through the tunnel to New Jersey.The police made them all get off the truck.


The hallways of Saint Vincent's Hospital in Manhattan were dark after the blackout. Power generators lit emergency and patient care areas.


The whole of the city was dark and the setting sun painted one building.

Images taken by a NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) satellite showing light coverage in the northeastern United States on a normal night (L), at 9:21 PM Eastern time on August 13, 2003, and after a massive blackout affected much of the area (R), shown at 9:03 PM Eastern time on August 14, showing the relative lack of lights due to the power outage. Millions of Americans and Canadians slowly recovered from the largest power outage in North American history Friday, as President George W. Bush (news - web sites) called the blackout a 'wake up call' and urged the modernization of antiquated electricity infrastructure. Officials were trying to pinpoint the cause of the breakdown and to discover how it cascaded so quickly through much of the northeastern United States and the Canadian province of Ontario, knocking New York City, Detroit, Cleveland, Ottawa, Toronto and a host of smaller cities back into the pre-electric age.

Actually we are probably blessed this happened after 9/11, since it probably shamed a lot of the trouble makers into not trying anything last night.

That's true, but honestly I think a lot of credit should go to Rudy Guiliani, who made NYC a radically more decent and civilized city altogether in his wake.

I wish the networks would have put their generators to good use instead of pumping out the same garbage they always do. They had the opportunity to help people, but I haven't heard of any one of them helping people out who were stranded.

I detailed my night elsewhere, but I just got home to Westchester an hour ago. Slept on the floor in my office, with a pillow made of balled-up secretary's sweaters taken from the backs of their chairs (don't tell them).

Those shots of average folk forced to sleep on the sidewalk or in the gutter were no lie, just multiply them a thousand-fold. Grand Central Terminal looked like that wounded scene in Gone With the Wind, where the camera pulls back on all those soldiers.

The terrible legacy this morning was the stench of sweat and, um, 'bathroom' odor on the sidewalks, because there was absolutely no place for anyone (man, woman or child) to do their thing. Last night SUCKED, to put it mildly.

I finally caught a train home around 1:30 today, and after my wife refused to hug or kiss me (then put my clothes in the washer with a stick), I took the longest shower of my life and dried off by pressing my body all over that greatest invention in human history, the air conditioner. The working air conditioner, that is.
