Oh, forget it. It looks like today is more of the same—while the MTA says crews have been working "round-the-clock work to restore service throughout the system as soon as possible in a manner that is safe for our customers, employees and equipment... There are outages affecting a number of lines that are elevated or in open cuts, particularly in Brooklyn, the Bronx, and the Rockaways in Queens. NYC Transit expects to restore service to all portions of the subway system for this morning's rush hour except for the Q train, the A line between Euclid Av. and the Rockaways, the N line in Brooklyn, and the L line from Myrtle Av. to Canarsie." (Updates here.) And don't even ask about the buses.

The MTA says, "we are evaluating roadway conditions on a route-by-route basis to determine whether conditions permit us to bus run service. Third, we are restoring bus service where possible." The first step would seem to be to get the roads plowed so buses can drive on them, but that's out of the MTA's hands. The Long Island Rail Road is resuming very limited service tonight from Penn Station to stations on four of its largest branches, Port Washington, Huntington, Ronkonkoma and Babylon. (Those branches are operating on a Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday schedule.) "The LIRR also expects to be able to gradually resume very limited service on other branches throughout the day," an MTA spokesman said.

"Limited service" on the Staten Island Railway has been restored. Metro-North is offering limited service on a Saturday schedule (details here), and NJ Transit will operate on "an enhanced weekend schedule" (more trains than a Saturday/Sunday schedule) on all lines except the Atlantic City Rail Line. As for the bridges, due to gusting winds the MTA has issued Phase I wind restrictions, in which motorists are notified at the bridge to reduce speeds.

In short, if you can find any way to stay inside again today—hire a surrogate, quit your job, start a blog—do it. But if you must venture out, please be our canary in the coal mine and let us know how it goes—email us at tips@gothamist.com!
