She writes to say that she “spent several weeks in critical care on a ventilator, which has temporarily paralyzed my vocal cords (stop cheering, folks!),” but that she has saved her backlog of email, text messages and snail mail and is now responding.
3. New Jersey American Water customers are no longer restricted to watering their lawns on certain days of the week. The company announced on Wednesday that the odd/even outdoor watering scheme in effect since early July is ended. (Bet you’d forgotten all about it anyway. We had.)
