Ironic that the best escape from Hurricane Sandy was . . . Florida? Yes, the weather map is upside down. After working in our Wall Street offices without heat, I was lucky enough to escape for a quick business meeting in Orlando. So much sunshine after so much rain felt like sci fi: Will the planet get to a point where we all need to scramble for oases from weather disasters? I’m back in NYC now, but at least the heat is back on, too — and hurricane season is over.
And, thank God, my daughter Willa has returned home from her trip across the country, safe and happy.
I’m very grateful.
