With Sandy having ravaged the east coast I’ve been a bit quiet here. I am alive and my home is intact and other than an brief interruption in power things have been relatively normal. However, working at a library things have been absolutely packed as we scramble to keep our services (and in some cases extend our services) to those still suffering from the massive power outages across New Jersey. Thanks to the lines at gas stations, downed trees, and lack of power commuting has been a bit of a hassle. Needless to say things are slowly edging back towards normal and I should be able to actually post more this week.
Several online news sources have some excellent photos to really cover how devastating the storm was to the area including the Huffington Post, The Weather Channel, and for a more individual look the Sandy subreddit.
