Transit systems recover from back-to-back storms, war vets combat PTSD with music

    Good morning, Feeders!

    While Lizz Fiedler works on a feature story you’ll hear next week, she’s also checking out the upcoming Philly marathon. It’ll be a little more crowded this year now that 3,000 spots have opened for NYC marathon runners.

    Emma Jacobs is catching up with local transit operators to see if they’ve got estimates yet on how much Hurricane Sandy and yesterday’s nor’easter cost them. Carolyn Beeler is looking into whether solar power helped anyone get through the storms without losing full power.

    Tom MacDonald has a post-election story for us on voter registration (it’s never to early to start thinking about the next election), and Phil Gregory will have a nor’easter report from New Jersey.

    Coming tomorrow morning is Peter Crimmins’ Veteran’s Day story about vets who’ve joined bands to help cope with PTSD.
