Flashbacks of Hurricane Sandy

Hello from New York City!
I’m here for the week for work and am staying at Mondrian Soho hotel, where I stayed during hurricane Sandy 18 months ago.
I love this hotel, especially because they greeted me with this:

Also because everything is blue

And the restaurant is beautiful as well as the view

I will never forget waking up to no electricity, no heating and most frightening no water. That’s when I started to think “I need to get out of here”. I can deal with no TV but not being able to flush the toilet or brush your teeth is something else!
Another thing I will never forget is the noise of the Storm on the Monday night. I kept thinking these windows are going to break or swing open, these windows are going to break…
I actually considered sleeping on the floor between the bed and the wall, making a little protective cave basically!
The worse was probably the building moving, I was sat on the bed and said to myself ” relax, you are hallucinating, the building is not moving!”
One of my colleagues saved me on the Tuesday and drove down to pick me up and take me to her house, I will be forever grateful.
Every time I come to NYC something happens, storms, celebrities, unexpected births so let’s see what happens this time!
