WyBlog, the best thing about New Jersey since the invention of the 24 hour diner.

Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

At the height of the storm, as the wind howled and rain fell in buckets, Sophie called out to me — "Dad! Come quick!" I ran. She pointed to the back yard. A lawn chair had blown over. And an old arbor, which I'd always swore I'd get around to properly anchoring down, fell over too. That was pretty much it for damage from Hurricane Sandy at Chez WyBlog. A few branches came down, and I had to go grab a garbage can out of my neighbor's yard this morning.
We were lucky.
Lots of folks around town have big problems. Trees are down everywhere. Roads blocked, houses crushed, cars damaged. Power is out, indefinitely. Fortunately $DayJob has power and internet. And coffee! But the best estimate I heard for when I'll have power back on at home is ten days. Yikes! I sure hope that's just the worst-case scenario.
But then I read some of the news accounts and I say, New Jersey pretty much looks like the Worst Case Scenario From Hell. The devastation is unbelievable. Everywhere you look, something is destroyed.
And it looks like Halloween might be cancelled for the second year in a row.
Fortunately it isn't as cold as last time. So at least we won't freeze
in the dark. And with my FiOS out I won't have to listen to any more political
robocalls. Hey, that's one silver lining!
