As the founders of Pundit Press (Aurelius, Joe C., Mr. K, and Thomas) all live in central New York state, we've all been hit pretty hard by the rains of Hurricane Irene. Where I live, at the moment, has had about 5" of rain so far today. Our main street is mostly flooded, a small stream near our house is utterly flooded, and the large river a block away from my house is a few feet from flooding. That would be really, really bad.
But here's the good news: we lost the internet early this morning and then power for several hours. But now we have both! I don't know how long we'll have it, though.
