Back to business – 1/3rd of the shipping completed #sandy. We get an extra hour today (Daylight saving ended) so that will be helpful. There isn’t any heat yet but we’re all dressing warm. We placed a big order for food from a local restaurant that was really happy, for a Saturday night – it’s still taking time to come back to life.

We’ll post more updates as we reboot and rebuild.

For the first time in about a week we don’t need to carry our “go bag” from place to place, stock piles of batteries, bottled water, snack-bar, solar panels, mintyboosts and flashlights everywhere. Well, we still carry some of those 🙂 Monday the city will mostly be back, our thoughts are with the people and businesses that are still struggling to get back after this event.

Thank you everyone for the kind words, support and orders – it all helps!
