Glass companies navigate the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy

On election eve, hundreds of thousands of people in the Northeast were still without power following Hurricane Sandy, with the hardest hit areas in New Jersey and New York marking an eighth consecutive day without electricity. In addition to power outages, gas shortages stalled recovery efforts, and glass companies in the region reported it could be weeks before conditions improved.

Sandy is not over
By Nicole Harris
I live in New York City, and Sandy was my first hurricane.  I am one of the very lucky. Except for rattling windows and worry, we were spared the worst of the storm.  We never went dark, never cold, never hungry. As is true in any disaster, where you are relative to the epi-center can mean life, death and degrees of destruction.  
From the fabricator: Hoping for a speedy recovery
By Max Perilstein
Without question, this past week was dominated by the destruction from the massive storm that hit New York, New Jersey, Virginia and other spots along the East Coast.  I, like so many others, hoped this storm would not be as bad as expected, but unfortunately in many cases, it was worse.  My heart breaks thinking about the loss of life and looking at the damage.
