Hi all, thanks for the well wishes and don't expect to hear from the NYC/NJ people for another few days. Still have TONS of trees and power lines all over the roads. Sitting in my local Starbucks (20 miles) as that's the closest place with power/internet and power strips "through the roof". Did get a few PM's off with a generator charged cell phone, but been trying to save on the battery. Nice to catch up on the 250+ posts! I missed all you guys:inlove: .

Glad to hear that everything's (relatively) okay for you! There was an article here about gas shortages in your area. Are they making progress as far as restoring power? More importantly, are you going to hit the stores
No stores for me till Saturday. The local few local stores I usually go to are closed (no power) and I don't want to drive too far due to the lack of gas. Most stations are just closed due to no power to work the pumps and the few (I've seen 1 open) had a cop car sitting next to it with a mile plus line of cars down the road. Power in my town was 100% down yesterday and only 87% down today, so progress, yes, but very very slow.
Don't worry, my secrete santa won't suffer as I've started early before the storm
