Most things are back to normal in the part of NJ

where I live, the northeastern part. Still some downed trees laying on peoples' houses but, for the most part, the trees that fell have been chopped up and are laying on the side of the road, as opposed to the middle of the streets, like before.

Gas stations are open and there isn't anymore police presence or lines. Stores have restocked their shelves with fresh food.

There are pocktes of outages here and there but, nothing like before.

I haven't been to the shore area. I think that might be where deacon is writing about. Never saw any tents around here, even when things were just awful. Anyone living by water, like mdefarge, is suffering from the cold air and lack of electrical power, that is if they even have a home left.
