BREAKING NEWS: Team Rubicon picks a fight with Sandy

Sandy is all like “Oh, no you didn’t TR!”
And then we were like, “Uh, yeah, we did.” Then we activated Regions 1, 2, and 3 to deal with it.


BREAKING NEWS: Team Rubicon picks a fight with Sandy. Tells her she looks fat in her spandex.

The T-birds over at Team Rubicon ditched the stupid luau and got down to work. Operation Greased Lightning has kicked off with TR mobilizing six response teams stretching from D.C. to New York, with a larger contingent of volunteers on standby to reinforce where needed.

With gusts being reported in Long Island over 80 MPH, many are saying that Hurricane Sandy is a one-of-a kind storm, one that we haven’t seen in this country for the last 100 years.

“I don’t care how special she thinks she is, TR isn’t going to take any of it,”  says Andrew Stevens, Team Rubicon’s Director of Field Operations.

Corresponding leadership from the area include Matt Pelak, JC McGreehan and Levi Briscoe, who are drawing up plans to address the hardest hit areas.

What can you do to help?  Well, first, if you’re in Sandy’s swath of destruction, get out or hunker down.  Make sure you have food and water that will last at least 7 days.  If you’re not in Sandy’s path, help support Team Rubicon’s mission!

What will your donation do?

$10 will feed a volunteer a meal.
 $25 will purchase a replacement chainsaw chain. $100 will cover the gas needed to get a team in place (hey, gas is $5 a gallon!)
