Back from the storm - 11.02.2012, 11:16 AM

Lost power due to hurricane Sandy on Monday afternoon - Finally got power back yesterday/last night. It could have been a nightmare. Fortunately I have a generator, so it was basically like camping for 3 days in a nice facility. I didn't get any work done, though - will be playing catch-up for a few days. Anyone who emailed me this week will receive replies some time today most likely. Glad to be back in action. :)

Atleast that tree only touched the house and garage.
If direct hit, that would have been ugly.
Glad to see every made it safe.
No power or water is inconvinient but managable.

Mike,

Thanks for the quick response. Hopefully I didn't seem bothersome about my account activation, I had no idea you were located in that area. Knowing this now, I am impressed with your dedication to taking care of things immediately after regaining power!

Thanks again!
