They should work fine if you're calling from the NYC area. The
212-976 and 914-976 prefixes are pay per call, so long distance
carriers won't connect to them. The last time I called (a long time
ago) the charge was a quarter.

As far as the weather is concerned, here in upstate NY we've had a lot
of rain but nothing too bad. There are swampy areas that flood, and
they're flooded. It's not a big deal except, I suppose, that many of
the swampy areas are close to where NYC news people live.



[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Well this afternoon (Saturday) Yahoo
News had some really awful reports of mud slides and other nasty
events on a couple of the interstates there, with a picture of a
SUV (Sports Utility Van?) swept off the highway and thrown into a
lagoon with the driver of same trying to evacuate and save his
family, etc. That was in New Jersey. And I guess the governor of
Massachusetts has declared an emergency in areas of that state, saying
they had more rain in a couple days than they otherwise had all
summer. PAT]
