Its OK Ian ..I know how to get hold of a set of keys to the Parker !

Seriously ...its bad out there ..Steve did text earlier today although I feel it will have hampered the intended shopping plans he had.

Looking at pics and having spent some time in Manhatten for work it really is shocking. The one pics for me was the overlay of the storm if it was over Europe - HUGE !

Hope they manage to get stuff sorted quickly ...

My sister is an oncology nurse in NYC; her husband os a bank executive (Bank of Paris, I think); they're in an apartment in NYC. Talked to their daughter (in Was DC; no problems at her place); Mom's living at the hospital, sleeping on the floor in a meeting room; Tom is in a hotel someplace trying to work as best as possible.

My niece said she saw a pic of an underground parking garage filled to street level with water, with cars floating in the opening. She recognized it as a block away from my Sis's apartment.

Ugly stuff.
