Thanks to everyone for the notes and thoughts over the last week. As a commenter said, this really is a case where an online community has contributed to a real-world community, and I and my family have definitely felt that community’s support.
I’m going to be spending this week with family, and then back at work full time next week. In the meantime, please keep up your great contributions when you see neighborhood news happening around you, or if there’s something you just want to chat about with the community. I’ll also be covering news when I can from a distance.
