Employees help out, and you can, also.
It's been said it's far better to have a neighbor who's near, than a brother who's far away, but in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Americans across the nation have proven to be the best neighbors and the strongest of families. This past weekend, AOL and Patch employees took an opportunity to pitch in, packing two tractor trailers worth of food, water and supplies in Dulles, VA, and Baltimore. The donations are headed to Hurricane Sandy ravaged areas in New Jersey and Long Island. Want to join the relief efforts? Click here to donate. "When a catastrophe of this size hits, we all feel it, both the hundreds of us who live in the impacted towns, and our colleagues who are watching and wishing they could help more," said Patch Chief Content …

Hurricane Sandy may be wreaking havoc along the East Coast, but it's producing nothing but chilly weather in St. Louis.
The center of Hurricane Sandy is expected to hit the southern tip of New Jersey by early this evening, the National Weather Service reports. But how will Hurricane Sandy be affecting weather in St. Louis, and particularly Hazelwood? Well, not by much, other than keeping colder temperatures around. Hazelwood's forecast calls for clear, sunny skies for the rest of the week, with high temperatures in the mid-to-high 50s and lows in the mid-to-low 30s. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Sandy is bottling up the weather pattern over the Midwest. That means the cool front that arrived Friday will linger through much of this week, keeping temperatures below normal. About the only adverse affect Sandy will have on St. Louis is in Lambert St…
