A Slight Interruption
The internet ran away and hid.
It just came back.
More or less regular business will resume shortly.
Kith and kin are all well and safe ... if a little wet and having to steer around a lot of lost trees.
The Ents will be in mourning for a while.
Wishing all as happy an outcome!
I was lucky as far as power goes and was only out for about 10-12 hours over Monday evening to Tuesday morning. My office in Nassau County had no power from Tuesday through at least Friday. I was without television and internet until Friday afternoon. I spent a lot of time watching DVDs (Derek Jacobi's Cadfael series being a favorite) and playing computer solitaire.
I had already been weaning myself off Coyne-bashing before Sandy. There's only so much fun to be derived from shooting fish in a philosophical barrel.
Yes, it's a mess and will be for a while. But it really wasn't that powerful a storm (at least here in New York/Long Island). Sooner or later we'll be hit by a full-blown hurricane and then maybe people will start understanding what climate change really means.
