We are back after an extended power and Internet outage (nine days!) sidelined us. Eastin and I made it through the storm OK. Some other friends of this site did not.
PR Pat lost his entire apartment along with his legendary bar The Battle Ax. Dan (He of the Many Comments) saw the entire first floor of his home wiped out.
I wish I could say that everyone pulled together and helped out, but this is Long Island so a lot of people just yelled at each other in gas lines. That doesn’t mean that we should overlook the people who DID make an effort to help though. To all the utilities crews, volunteers, dudes hooking up generators, police and fire, and everyone who did some one else a good turn, this strip is for you.
And hey, if you have an extra five spot on you maybe send it over to the Red Cross.
