It's raining and windy outside in the Bronx, but the real storm isn't supposed to hit until tonight. Two of my four sons are on life support (breathing machines, etc.) due to a genetic disorder, so a power outage for us means more than just a few hours in the dark.
***UPDATE*** The lights in our apartment were flickering for a several hours, but they never went out. Manhattan was hit much harder than the Bronx.
