Shifting work to offices on the West Coast, working out of hotels, hooking Mac computers directly up to generators: It's taking some really inventive measures to adapt to working despite one of the worst natural disasters to hit the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern part of the U.S. It's not exactly simple, but business has to go on -- and so, in Sandy's wake, companies across the media, marketing and ad industries are finding a way to make it work.

We're in the same boat. Advertising Age's headquarters are in New York City, and while we're not up to our full complement yet, with staffers stranded in parts of New York and New Jersey, many of us on Wednesday made it in via lengthy car and bus commutes (some taking several hours) while others biked or walked.

We want to hear about your stories and will publish some of the best stories we here. So please email us at AdAgeEditor@AdAge.com with your tales of how your company has been coping with the storm and its after-effects.
