Hurricane Update

New York City has ordered mandatory evacuations for low-lying areas.

At the same time, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has ordered New York bridges closed to traffic and the New York State Thruway to be closed if sustained wind speeds exceed 60 mph.

Also: "The New York Metropolitan Transit Authority will begin a systemwide shutdown beginning at noon Saturday, the New York governor's office says."

So...that will make evacuations easy.


I have A LOT of friends and family in NYC and surrounding areas, and more along the rest of the eastern seaboard. I know there are a ton of Shakers in the areas likely to be hit by the storm, too. I'm thinking about you and concerned for you.

I know that sounds insufficient. It feels insufficient, too.
