Happy Thanksgiving, Port Washington.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, there is much to be grateful for.
Today is a national holiday, which means all federal, state and local government offices are closed. Banks and the financial markets are closed. There is no postal delivery.
But if you're heading to the big parade in Manhattan, the Long Island Rail Road is operating on a holiday schedule, but has 22 additional trains systemwide for those headed to and from the parade. Off peak fares apply Thursday as well as Friday, when the LIRR will operate on a near normal weekday schedule. Extra cars are being added to trains.
