I feel you airborne. I'm a flight mech for the coast guard and actually flew to ny the morning after it hit. Had no ideal how my house had faired since I live on the barrier island of brigantine just north of Atlantic city. I finally got to my house yesterday morning and besides just some flooding in the crawlspace underneath no damage. After seeing the devastation sandy caused from atlantic city to ny I am truly thankful at how lucky I am and hope it's working out for you and your family.

Anyone in Central NJ? My folks in Hillsborough are having a hard time finding gas. My brother had to search in Flemington for them. If you know of any gas stations that have some please let me know in a PM (or here if anyone else shows interest). Thanks.

In other news, Princeton University re-opened for critical personnel today. I guess that's some good news for businesses in that area.

Be safe to those who are still without power or working to get it back on!

My boss was just telling me he saw a news piece on this. I always suspect the media of sensationalizing things but I am saddened to hear this is actually a problem that is affecting your folks I guess there is always a silver lining. Learn to prepare for the worst.

Staten island got a small amount of coverage on the news tonight. Nowhere near the amount it should have gotten. The news chose instead to cover other areas extensively. The death toll is higher on staten island than anywhere else but got covered the least. Most stories were about people pi$$ed off about not having power. Nothing about the 2 and 4 year old siblings torn from their mothers arms after being denied help at someones doorstep. No mention of the father and son found in each others arms crushed by debris. Wont hear about the 13 year old girl killed as she and her father tried to protect their house. I'm not saying other places didnt deserve coverage but the county with th highest death toll should at least get a two minute piece.

This is so sad I know most of you aren't religious but I look forward to a time when a conclusion had been brought to this tragic system of things. I wish there was something I could do to help somehow.

No power. Kids are at my parents with power. Theyre gettng sick so i'd rather them stay there where theres heat. I'm home because blue n whites have been coming around warning of looters. My wife waited for an hour to get some gas and i heard of people siphoning gas. Ain't gonna leave it for them to take. Just sitting here reading stories of disaster after disaster. Maybe i should be training for the marathon.

I'll try to stop by this weekend with a few guns and hang out. I still have my "you loot we shoot" hat from Katrina.

Kirk, you good?

I've been working so much I can't help anyone I know. Can't wait till this weekend.
