Thanks. I was thinking the same thing -- "Where's the damn link?" when you first posted. Looked at the next post and there was Matilda, asking what I was thinking.

NJ Gov. Christie has come out with thanks and praise for Obama's response for help. I liked Christie before based on what little I knew of him. He seems like a class act.

And I'm SO tired of the fat jokes about him from late night talk shows.

Hey, PE: I quoted your "nothing like having an eight year old recycling nazi in the house" line to some parents here and they laughed at that!

Speaking of boobies:

I got back from having a diagnostic mammogram about a hour ago. I am having some pain in the left one, but the m-gram came back clean!

I didn't realize how worried I was until the tech said "no cancer."

So that Dillian couple just posted their "TY note" to everyone who gave them money -- on FB. Classy. 2+ months after their wedding. What about people who aren't on FB?

Good morning all! I'm grumpy today. My husband left the house at 7 am and didn't get home until after midnight because he is driving around the state dropping off generators and helping rescue people. He's doing it again today. But I'm home with no power for at least another day (thankfully we didn't get any water damage) and I have to listen to idiots like my neighbor and my grandmother who don't bother to sign up for any of the free government alert systems and hole themselves up in their houses/apartments waiting for people to seek them out, but claim that they have no information on what is going on around them. I wish that people would use common sense and try their best to get informed.

My biggest pet peeve yesterday were all the people driving around looking for a place to get coffee. Um, hello?! The whole state lost power! Stay off the road and let the emergency vehicles and DPW do their jobs!

Halloween has been cancelled in the state of NJ.

Thank you for letting me vent. It's supposed to get down to the 30's here over the next couple of days. Keep us all in your prayers.

Jess, I always think of the FAMILIES of the rescue workers at these times. Who's sandbagging their houses? Who's making sure they're okay? The families sacrifice along with the workers.

I'm really glad you're ok. The power thing sucks I know. In '96 there was a storm the day after Thanksgiving. Feet (with a capital FEET) of snow and ice...power out for a couple of weeks...calling in power crews from all over the country and Canada...it was a mess. Only a year after massive flooding that shut down I-5 between (basically) Portland and Seattle as well as a couple of towns along the way... Of course that was more or less local to Puget Sound... After a week we bought tire chains and left town for a while, wish you guys could all do likewise.

My coworker was in Penn State this weekend for the Ohio State game, and their flights got canceled (They were due to fly back Monday or Tuesday, b/c they also were visiting his parents). They ended up renting a car and driving back -- drove from eastern PA to the Twin Cities in like 15, 17 hours. He looks like hell even though they got back at 9 yesterday morning.
