Faith’s party UPDATE

I hope this finds all our friends and family well after the events of this week.  I’m hoping you are all home safe and warm with your families. We did very well through Sandy, no damage or losses.  We did loose power on Monday night but have the benefit of a standby generator that keeps most of the house functional. We were warm, showered and had access to food so what else can you ask for.  I still do not have internet access and cellphone service at the house is spotty at best so if you have tried to FB, e-mail or text I might not get them.
I have had a few inquiries about the party for Faith scheduled for Friday the 2nd.  We have been deliberating if we should reschedule. I know many of you are still facing the hardship of the cold, dark or lack of gasoline.  Some may not even be able to travel because of blocked roads.
We are still going to have the party, we need to and for some it may be the first opportunity to get out of the house for something good this week.

Here is what I can tell you from a logistical standpoint:
Our house is accessible from both Route 23, Libertyville Road south of 519 and if you are coming North on Route 15 though Sparta via 565 or 94.  I have personally traveled all of those roads and they are open and passable. For the folks from PA, I have driven 23 North to the NY/PA border and it is open.  I do know that route 650 (through Stokes State Forrest) is closed due to downed trees and wires.
I can’t tell you much about the gasoline situation up here.  Before the power went out most stations had already sold out. I know there is no gas at least for a 15 miles drive from our house.

So if you are close we welcome you, if you are far and adventurous, go for it.  If you cannot make it we understand and will see you sometime in the future when life becomes a bit more normal typical  you know.
