Talk about a crazy week... on October 29th (last Saturday), my part of the World was hit with a freak snow storm that cause more damage than Hurricane Irene. I've spent the last week (except for a few hours on Wed & Thur) without electricity.
This is the reason why many of the updates to Genealogy Today have been delayed, including The Genealogy News. Thankfully, power was restored yesterday around 5:00pm, and high-speed Internet followed shortly thereafter.
Kudos to my recently acquired Motorola Droid3, which kept me connected to the outside world while I sat patiently in the dark each evening. I even managed to perform a variety of administrative web site tasks using the phone -- none of which I ever imagined would be possible when I decided to upgrade my phone. And for the two days we had partial power, I was even able to use the phone as a mobile hotspot and accessed the Internet via the 3G connection. Pretty nifty feature.
Hopefully, life will get back to normal, and the regular flow of unique genealogical information to Genealogy Today will resume (likely tomorrow). Thank you for being patient, especially those of you who made purchases or requested lookups.
