OK, after 5 days of darkness I am back up and running. Our power was restored Saturday night and the internet came back on Sunday. We are very fortunate as there was no damage to ourselves or our house, just four downed trees and a broken fence. The South Shore has been hit really hard and many of my fellow Long Islanders are still with out power, which means they also do not have heat and the temps are getting close to freezing at night. If you are in the position to help, you can find out how by visiting the American Red Cross’ Long Island website.
