Open Call: Your Frankenstorm Photos

Rate: 8 Flag

I'm writing this open call from my parents' apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, which is currently doubling as my personal Frankenstorm bunker, replete with dry goods, bottled water, the first season of "Homeland" and our family's odiferous but much beloved basset hound. As it turns out, my own apartment is planted a few blocks inside New York's dreaded, Suzanne Collins-sounding Zone A, where Mayor Bloomberg has ordered mandatory evacuations for what could be a historic storm.  Truthfully, I'd just as soon ride this tempest out at home, but I'm pretty sure the Internet connection here is stronger than it will be in Brooklyn. (The moral of the story is that postal workers have nothing on Salon's editorial staff. We'll be live-blogging the apocalypse when it arrives.)

More to the point, we want to see how the storm has affected you. Hit us with your best photos from Hurricane Sandy, and if you think you've got a full-bodied post on the subject, don't be shy. We hope to assemble your best work into a slide show cataloguing the devastation. (The bread shelves of Park Slope's Food Co-op have already been pillaged. What future horrors await?)

Hoping the power stays on... :)
Good luck to you in NY. Riding out the storm in the Pa countryside but wanted to say, I can barely get on to read or comment let alone think about posting pictures!! Error messages as per usual so anyone who can get through that to post, good on em.
Good luck. Duck?
If bullets? Duck!
I am Remember.

This reminds me of a past` War's Viet`Nam's Monsoon.
Rain drops sounded a bit like `Music upon Gold Leaves.
Grunts (Drafted) had no tent` to remain dry in Jungles.
`
Agent Orange turned Forrest/Woods Jungle leaf Brown.
Banana Leaves turned Yellow\Gold and then leaf `Dyed.
The Wild Boars, Boa-Restrictors/Salamanders Slithered.

Somehow we survived.
Hi Dear rita shibr. Nice.
I saw your Baby Photos.
Let's take a Rain Shower.
I have a bar of Goat Soap.
Sandalwood Oil Do Smell.
In War we No used Soaps.
V.C, felt Invaded by G.I.'s.
We Trumped. Some Died.
I feel cleansed with Friend.

P.S.

She gave my Son a Banana-
Tree. Photo is @ Art James.

That for Honoring others.
Parents. Bloggers. Nature.
Ay Ghost. Invisible Nature.

I'd convey more. I won't.

You will love Homeland, but beware of it.

I recently came to realize that it has a subtext message about "power and use of it in emergencies" told in a way that can pervert people.

But you will love it. The acting is fuckin' awesome!
let's see
go out into a dangerous storm to take photos
hope the cable reception is good
wade through OS: lots of errors and lengthy lag times
spend a mega-amount of time trying to upload photos
spend enormous amount of time trying to format post
pray I've got enough PB&J sandwiches to eat after the aftermath
ration the vodka
look out for zombies
hope Chris Christie donates his pants to Habitat for Humanity
think of some cool Romney/ Fema jokes
have post-storm coitus
curse the power company
try to re-log onto OS
get baptized in a storm surge
pray everyone affected by the hurricane is all right —safe
end this comment
bye
I think Chuck forgot the bit about how you don't get paid for your photos.
Is Zabar's open? I was out this a.m. and McDonald's was open, but Burger King, not so much.
I think I can see the ocean here in Indiucky!!

Which one?

BOTH!!!
Don't I get an EP and cover for getting those exclusive photos I posted last night?. I mean Weegee would have been proud.
FORMERLY MEAN MR. (Stoop-stuck) (duck) Mustard.
I found a new Free Wi-Fi (FEE-PIE-Hoot-duck) Hideout.

The Hideout is More Fun Than A Wet-Duck or P.U. Truck.
I Hope Jake Ducked When Trees FLOP-Duck on Bird Head.

Maybe Jake ask Kerry L. What to say. Cat Got Jake's Tongue.
I Swore to be @ OS Jest Only One Moment. I Views Seagulls.
I am so behind. No Take Photo Of any Head-Wig Blown-Off.
No sip vodka. You may may take naked Kerry in POT-HOLE.

Download at Jakes's Favorite PORN-SITE. No BE GOURDS.
Behave. On FOOL-MOON Night No-Walk. No Do Moon Jake.
No Ever Try To Walk On Moonbeam Shine. No Be a BIG SOP.

This means NO GO` GIN.
I'm glad to have heard (via PM, posts, and otherwise) from so many OSers affected by Sandy, and I'm glad they've come through all right. Jake, I hope you and your family (and dog!) are well, too!
