Hello geeks! I haven't been able to come to the last couple of events because Hurricane Sandy did a number on my dad's house in Rockaway Beach, and I've been up there to try and help him and the other people in his neighborhood. I'm going up again this weekend.

If you wanna pitch in for my supply run, please let me know. A lot of my friends asked me to set up a PayPal so if that is easier for you, here:

Here's a link to all the pics I took this past weekend:

There are a lot of local groups distributing supplies but communication is difficult in that area so they need targeted supply runs and distribution assistance. I'm bringing gasoline and other hard-to-find items with me this weekend. Here's an example of what local groups on the ground are reporting, and what I'm using as my 'shopping list':

Hope this off-topic post is okay. I miss you guys and hope to see you all again soon.

Yeah, it's a mess up there. I've got several friends and family in the area. All are fine, but a couple have some pretty bad damage... and most either have no power or it's constantly coming and going.

A few of my parents friends lost pretty much everything however (down on the NJ shore).

The NJ shore got hit the worst I think. A friend of mine's mom lost her whole house. It's so sad. I'll keep your friends in my thoughts.

Those pictures tell a really ggod story of what is happening up North. I'd try to publish those! Very moving. Hope all is well with your family, and that there is a speedy recovery.
