Total admiration for the people of New York..........they handled that huge power cut with amazing cool!
No panic, no looting no chaos..I was truly staggered to see on TV tonight all those people just calmly getting on with whatever they had to do to deal with a night on the streets instead of a cosy supper at home with their families. What it must have been like to be trapped in a lift or in the underground for hours I can't imagine but their strength of character under that kind of pressure is to be applauded! Well done New Yorkers!

Still blistering heat... but a breeze this morning so bearable. There are benefits to everything though and the criminal fraternity have certainly benefitted from this heat wave...................burglaries have increased by leaps and bounds for obvious reasons............everyone has been leaving their doors/windows open to let some air in. Air did come in and so did the thieves apparently.
