Well, hello there, what's this? A non-Sandy, non-nor'easter, non-power outage post? Perish the thought.
Not that Patch is not covering that which needs to be covered. But, c'mon, we need a distraction. Hopefully, this weekend, such a distraction exists. Perhaps it's music, worship or several ways to help others still reeling from Sandy's destruction. Read on.
Also, because of all the storm issues and outages and so on, some of you may have not posted to our events calendar in the past week or so. If you don't, we may not know of an event everyone should know about. Make sure you post the event at this link, and let us know you have done so in the comments below.
