    Lucky Number 214

    Emerging out of the mess that is my neighborhood in lower east side of Manhattan.  I feel blessed that my family is ok and pure lucky that I decided this past Saturday to move my GT3RS 4.0 to my brother-in-laws upstate for a winter hibernation.  The move had nothing to do with the storm, but boy, am I lucky that I did move it.  Our street, and the garage, where I parked the Porsche and still park my X5M was flooded with more than 5 feet of water.  The garage management still will not let us into the garage as there is still 2 feet of standing water and the water is now mixed with gasoline.  I am assuming the X5 is ruined, but luckily insured and replaceable.  The 4.0 would have been another story all together.  This was pure dumb luck as the timing of the move had nothing to do with the impending storm.  I thought our street might get some flooding but nothing like what happened.  One might have said we should know better but in past storms where there was talk about storm surge this garage was ok.  My expectation was that we would have a maximum of 1 foot of water but nothing like what happened.  The damage in the area is staggering.  I am seeing pictures for the first time today as I have been offline since 9 pm on Monday when the transformer exploded.  

    Thanks to the big guy for watching over our family - the car is just material but I will take the luck when I can get it.

    God loves Porsches - not BMW.

    Just kidding - kinda (the 4.0 is special)

    My heart goes out to all those who were impacted by this terrible storm!  Hang in there, we will rebuild.

    Glad God has good taste!!!! take the sacrificial BMW any day 


    Re: Lucky Number 214

    THat is good news indeed ! Glad to hear you and your family came out without any mayor health or safety issues (unless you count a ruined X5M which in my mind would be a mayor issue)


    Re: Lucky Number 214

    So glad your family is okay and that you saved the 4.0 (in that order of priority) kiss
