re: Hurricane Sandy: Disaster Recovery Improv Tales
Some great stories of people adapting to the circumstances. It is unrealistic to believe you can think of everything that could possibly go wrong ahead of time. I realize that 20-20 hindsight makes people say "Well they should have thought of that", but things that are obvious after that happen just aren't so obvious beforehand. Bottom line you have to be adaptable to get through events like this. That doesn't mean you don't plan for what you can think of but also don't beat yourself up very badly afterwards. Adjust your plan, but don't fret over the unforeseeable.

I think you mean 111 Eight Avenue, not street.
