We're getting there. No power yet, but most of my area should have it by tonight.

Yep, thankfully the Philly area was spared a lot of the rain, so I think the areas in the city and surrounding that got flooded by Irene were pretty much spared. A ton of trees down and wind damage, but none of the horrible persistent flooding issues that are crushing NY, NJ, and areas south like DE.

They postposed trick-or-treating in a lot of our areas, but not all the townships are being consistent with the date. I wish they would just all settle on the same date. Looks like I'll be handing out candy to the kiddies on Saturday night ... Chris Hanson/Dateline NBC could have a field day ...

Croydon is in lower Bucks County ... you were probably ~ 10 miles or so from my house. I live right near Sesame Place. They recently opened a micro-brewery in Croydon ... Neshaminy Creek Brewing. There's no brewpub, but they do have a tasting room that's open a couple days a week.

So. After almost 3 years at my job, they terminated me today. I'm a bill collector and have collected 400k in 10 months. They let me go do to 1 bad month. I already have a few opportunities out there. But it still sucks. I've never been fired before in 11 years of working. Plus. I really wanted to move to Orlando by my bday in April. Don't think that is gonna happen now.

That sucks, hopefully they wont contest your application for unemployment benefits if you choose that route.

Look at it this way, it might be a sign for you to move to Orlando sooner than April, best of luck whatever opportunity comes your way.

I'd say this gives you the push to make Orlando happen, do it!

I say it could be a good thing since it means you can expand your job search just in case you find a nice option in the Orlando area. It could simplify your desired move.

Just wanted to check in and let you all know that I have my power back. I can only wish the same for everyone who still doesn't have power. School is closed again tomorrow. We now have five "snow" days to make up and it only November.



Josh , so sorry about your job. You should consider moving to Orlando now. And don't forget everything happens for a reason! Good luck.

Well, it's a small world after all (feel free to sing along, now that I have gotten the tune in your head...) Googled Neshiminy Creek Brewing, and they are almost on the same road as the company (a small contract manufacturing company called Zober Industries) I was visiting. Next time I get back I will stop in and bring some back.

Another storm-related problem cropping up here on LI is the shortage of gasoline due to lack of deliverys. Coupled with the large number of traffic lights still not working makes for some interesting travel.

Hope you get your power back soon!

Oh, and when I went on the website for Neshiminy Brewing, the first thing I see is an event they are holding, Hot Rods and Hops! Two of my some of my favorite things, if there was a Grateful Dead band playing it would be perfect. Timing is a little off, it's this Saturday so travel might be a little tough.

Speaking of breweries, going to a beerfest next Saturday at Belmont Racetrack. Cheers!

Hey Josh! Time to look for a job in Orlando. Maybe you'll move there sooner than you think!

I saw the lines on the news this morning! I wonder how many people will run out of gas before they reach the pump?

I did OK with Sandy over here. The lights flickered a bunch of times, but I never lost power. We went back to work yesterday. Some of my co-workers are still without power and dealing with flooded basements. I think this part of Virginia fared pretty well.
