Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne is tackled by Jets safety Kerry Rhodes during the second quarter

What a way to start a Monday.

Torrential rain and wind gusts that topped 60 mph wreaked havoc on the city and suburbs today, knocking out power, toppling trees, snarling airports and sweeping chunks of heavy debris from the tops of construction sites onto local streets.

On top of the Jets 30-17 loss last night in the AFC Championships; four blocks of Lower Manhattan were a no-go area after debris rained down from a tower under construction on 8 Spruce St; the street closures forced Mayor Bloomberg to postpone a City Hall ceremony honoring first responders who just returned from Haiti; A passer-by was injured in The Bronx when a sudden wind gust sent bricks flying in front of a fashion boutique; AND I was postponed 45mins this morning due to subway delays.

Let hope the rest of the week redeems itself…
