Night will close us down and change the view

So many people are fleeing the city (one of the reports said ten thousand?) and I don't know how many of them will come back. I don't know what they're going to have to come back to if they do. The recovery cost for this is looking to be more than 10 billion. (That's... not a small amount.)

113 dead, 228 still missing, and the last person recovered alive from one of the buildings was on Wednesday afternoon. It's Saturday morning. 60 percent of the city is still without water, 25 percent is without power. (Power, obviously, we have.)

Fuck it, I love this god damn city and I'll leave it when they pry it from my cold, dead fingers.
