I hope all of my patients fared well in today's storm.  I felt I should stay in my building and watch over things to make sure there were no damages or flooding (as coop president, with no live-in super) and actually slept through most of it.  It is still very windy out there, and walking around was really invigorating.

I was on call for the shelters since the New York City Medical Corps serves the city in case of natural disaster or terrorism events, but so few people needed the shelters I was not asked to come in.  As usual, New Yorkers came together and were ready to help each other out. I love living in New York!
