I drove out to the Rockaways with a buddy today, and saw gas lines or 
empty gas stations all along Flatbush Ave.

Now OT...

And if you think the Rockaways look bad online or on TV, you get no 
sense of the scale of the damage until you see it.  Really horrifying. 
It looks like a war zone.

Food lines, long blocks burnt out, FEMA trucks, the water came in from 
the sea and reached the bay, probably at least 4' high as the debris in 
chain-linked fences reveals.  There is no more boardwalk from what I 
could see.  Sections of intact boardwalk, lamp post and "lifeguard on 
duty" sign, are some 300 yards from the original spot.

And lots of people desperate for D batteries.

Yet still had better cell connectivity than in Manhattan.
