Hurricane Sandy & Updates

Hi, everyone.

I hope all of our East coast friends are safe and sound today! Here in NYC there is no public transportation, and the first rains of the storm have arrived. We're all working from home until further notice -- and for as long as any of us have power. I'll get in touch with the tech team today, to find out who's able to work, and what they're able to work on. I'm not sure where everyone on our team lives, but some parts of NYC have been evacuated. I just missed being in the evacuation zone, myself! Eek.

Needless to say, the hurricane will definitely impact our progress this week. As of last week, their #1 priority was Replies, and then the inability to Edit Preferences. I'll post updates here and in a new thread, as I have them.

Yours in batteries (& 3 dozen rolls of toilet paper because my husband went a little "hurricrazy" at the supermarket),

...keep going!

Be safe! I am on the West Coast, so although I do know there is a storm brewing, not so up-to-date on the details. Thanks for the update.

Thanks, Karen! We're all just praying that the power stays on. In the meantime, I've been baking like a maniac. If we lose electricity, my kids will just eat bread and muffins for a few days. Mom of the year -- that's me! LOL

I did find out that one of the guys on the team was forced to evacuate yesterday :(. Fortunately, he had a place nearby to go! So scary...

...keep going!

LOL!  My mother does the same thing with hurricanes and toilet paper but I got news for them both, you can't flush toilets without power.  The pumping stations go down and the toilets back up.  I own a camping portable potty. 

I wish you all the best of luck and my thoughts and good energy is headed your way.
