Last night's Nor'easter may not have seemed like much compared to last week's super storm, but for an already crippled region, it wasn't easy. New York is still working to recover from Sandy, and has made strides--resuming subway service, -restoring power (in much of the city), and enabling displaced citizens to vote at makeshift polling stations powered by generators. The snowstorm struck another blow, downing already vulnerable trees and causing further power outages. Today, the mayor imposed gas rationing on the city.
Tonight, tempatures will hover around freezing. Many New Yorkers still lack power and heat. On the bright side, New York Cares has begun its annual coat drive early. Please consider pitching in if you can.
