Attention Readers (just in case of site outages)
Crosscut is hosted by Amazon Web Services but from an Amazon site on the East Coast, where Hurricane Sandy is expected to cause major damage today and possibly through the week.
As a result, Crosscut's service through an Amazon facility in Virginia could be affected. If you find that Crosscut is unavailable, please check our Facebook and Twitter feeds both for news and updates. We are working to avoid any lack of service on our site, but we also want to prepare readers for this possibility.
Stay tuned. Our thoughts are with those riding out the storm.
