UPDATE: Technical Difficulties

Dear HNN Community,

We apologize if any of you have had difficulty contacting HNN by email between Wednesday evening and the present time. Our email host is experiencing technical difficulties that have prevented HNN from receiving email on several of our accounts. 

We hope this situation will be rectified soon and appreciate patience for responses to emails and article submissions. 

UPDATE: We have started to receive new emails this morning. It remains to be seen if emails sent to HNN between 8:00 pm EDT Wednesday and 10:30 am Friday will be recovered. If you emailed HNN with urgent business during that time consider re-sending your message.
