No, you're not losing it! Patch looks different today. We did a quick visual nip-and-tuck to the homepage to make it even more user-friendly. And we've moved a couple pieces of furniture. For those keeping score: * We tweaked some words in our navigation bar to save space (e.g., "Traffic & Gas" is now "Commute") * We moved the weather icon next to the Patch branding so you can find it more quickly! * We moved, well, YOU closer to the top!

While the site might look a little different today, we still offer the same robust coverage of what's happening in your community. That was, is, and will always be our mission. We …
