        Great news!  Considering the devestation around you, that is pretty amazing.  Can't imagine how strong those winds must of been to bring down a tree of that size.

            Four days... No power...cell phone sporatic at best...little gas, unless you wait in line half a day. Schools closed 'til Monday, at the earliest. Big tree limbs in our front yard just missed the house... But we're safe..and that's all that matters. Sending this by cell, while it's working.such devastation in our town. Still flooding and still gas fires burning.one house broke from its foundation and lan feed on a four lane bridge. Lots of pictures on brickpatch. Com
            Lo

              I stayed open during the whole shebang, I bought a bunch of dry ice to keep things cool, heated with propane gas units....did $54.00 in biz, total for both days, lol, but I was determined to keep my sanity by staying open, while everything near and far seemed to be falling apart, it worked for me!
              The tragedy in New York and Jersey is apalling, worse than Katrina?? I don't know, but gotta be as bad. Godspeed to all of you who were damaged by Sandy!

                    We're trying to make the best of it. Our. Cell phones keep us in touch. We cannot only talk to all of you, but we confined where gas is available and ice. We're re also getting the names of friends less fortunate. Today we are helping two two of our friends who were flooded out of their homes.

                      If you got a Starbucks nearby you can charge your cellphone and laptop accordind to my brother in law on electricity less Long Island.
                      No gas, etc., getting very ugly according to him.
