What a week. My home, Virginia, which typically takes the brunt of many hurricanes, was blissfully spared from this one. (My other home, Central Appalachia, got a blizzard that put a lot of people out of power and water, but the damage was nothing compared to New Jersey and New York.) We were high and dry the whole time (in our new home, Utah), but we've watched this week's incredible scenes unfold just the same.
Please take the time to donate to the Red Cross. Always a good cause, always tax deductible, and right now working around the clock to help people devastated by the storm.
On a lighter note, some interesting things in the news this week:
Celiac might be influenced by the season of birth
