[Marxism] Hurricane report

The hurricane is supposedly landing down in NYC now but as I look 
outside the rain has stopped and there is no wind. The tv reporters 
claim 65 mph winds but not even the leaves are rustling on the trees 
beneath my window.

Lots of rain, however. My big concern--obviously from a selfish 
standpoint--is whether the East River, which is now breaching into lower 
Manhattan, will spill into electrical generators, etc. beneath the 
street which will force Con Ed to cut off power.

God forbid that I lose electrical power. You know what Lenin said: 
“Communism is Soviet power plus the electrification of the whole country.”
