Yesterday we got the Huggacasts back working, 404s resolved, and will keep making the site even huggier.

Readers are reporting some issues when logging in to comment and creating accounts. We’re checking those and note that there are like 17 ways to get into the site. If one doesn’t work, we’ve got another and Typepad authentication seems the most reliable. If you’re having issues, please contact us.

Though I wasn’t out getting wet with all the other hard-core folk out there, I was happy (and warm) keeping up via Cascade’s twitter feed and following the many photos.
