THE LONG WAIT-OUT BECAME A ROOST-IN

THE BIG FLAKE-OUT. At first, most stranded New Yorkers were decorous about their darkened plight. Those who could find chairs sat straight like patients waiting for their dentist, and with nothing much to do, made small talk with fellow strandees who couldn't see them anyhow. But as the long night wore on, dignity went out the window along with endurance, and they just flopped where they could. Hotel lobbies, providing both chairs and carpets were favored roosts, as were barber shops with those luxurious reclining thrones.
