The Dord of Darien

Musings from the Mayor of the Internet

Blown away

The city I live in got dominated by a storm last night. I’ve not received word yet if it was a proper hurricane or just a really high-powered regular wind storm, but it apparently obliterated a pretty big chunk of western Massachusetts, with good ol’ Greenburg finding itself in the exact epicentre.

Thank god for all those emergency crews the state sent in. Except that they aren’t actually apparently doing any work; there’s no sign anywhere of anybody actually clearing out any downed trees or super-dangerous downed power lines dangling in the roads. Meanwhile, both of the city’s Dunkin Donutses are packed. Hmm.

Most of the area doesn’t have power, and may not for days, which is why I’m writing this instead of being at work. I clearly do have power, because I’m a big jerk.
