Yeah I am in the Northeast and my area got walloped badly. Not me so much but I had to drive 50 miles to get to power/a computer/the internet this morning. The power company is saying it'll be next week before we have power restored.
I have read a lot, catching up on what I wasn't getting to. Most of it was research/background for various projects. I read several biographies and I'd like to talk about them at length later but let me just say there is great tragedy in squandered talent. It's not cute, funny, noble or brave. It's just stupid and pathetic.
