Suffolk County will decide whether to issue a "mandatory evacuation" for Fire Island today, which is an annoying thing, because whether it gets stormy or not over the course of the week, that means there's still no ferries running. (And you don't want to get driven onto the island in a storm surge; it's hairy!) But that may all be moot, since the LIRR is just now barely running properly again, after a fire put service on the fritz for a week. Gays! Return to your seaplanes! Remember when you weren't victims of public transport?
