Editor's Note: All is well at the Raeburn household in lower Manhattan following Sandy, but we've been without power, Internet, and water since Monday night. We're still unsure when any of these necessities of life might return. Meanwhile, I'm clawing my way online at a coffee shop in midtown to write this note. You probably have not noticed any disruption in service, as they say, thanks to the fine work of trackers Deb Blum and Faye Flam. I hope to rejoin them soon.
