The number for "emergency assistance" goes to a recording that says "This office is closed through Monday, for the Veteran's Day Holiday. Please DO NOT leave a message, because no one will be here to take your call until Tuesday, November 14th."

I could live without the heat, but I was operating under the assumption that we still had cooking-gas (ovens for heat!) and hot water. The fire department turned everything off. Keyspan turned hot water and cooking gas back on. But they must have shut those off again.

Now that the stupid tree has gone up in Rockefeller Center, the cheap hotels are $300+ a night. It's tourist Xmas season.
