about the storm that has swept through the northeast. Making lots of calls today to friends and family all along the east cost, and hearing lots of tales of woe, though very happily, all of them of the non-tragic variety. Lots of property damage, but so far, everyone I was able to talk to has reported making it through the storm safe and sound. One friend reports he currently has a house full of ecstatic kids who think he's a hero for buying a small generator before the storm and figuring out how to hook it up to their gamebox -- making them the most popular kids in the otherwise powerless neighborhood.
I hope you and everyone in your life is safe today.
