Thank goodness the Transit Workers’ Union waited until this month to possibly have a transit strike on the subways and buses. Both Ashleigh and I now walk to work every day, so it won’t really affect our ability to do our jobs. It’ll still affect us in many other ways, but as of now it seems like that will be the biggest problem for most New Yorkers.

I think it will affect us most because of the mass commotion on the roads, because of the fact that our street will be an artery for emergency vehicles (according to the Mayor’s contingency plan), and because most businesses and services will be running at lower than normal levels (due to stranded employees).

Still, I doubt the strike will last longer than a day or two (if it starts at all), so if anything, it might be no more than a long weekend for most of New York.
