Hurricane Sandy

Friday, November 02, 2012

As most of you are aware, Hurricane Sandy has caused a lot of damage on the east coast. My thoughts go out to those who have not faired well, are out of resources, or have lost their homes. Currently, my neighborhood is without power (and have been for about 4-5 days), but thankfully my house still has gas. I have been staying at my relative's home, not too far away, where there is power, heat, and electricity so I'm thankful my situation isn't so bad.

There have been problems concerning travel/commuting and stations running out of gas. I had friends who had to wait 3+ hours in line just to fill up their tanks. Despite how bad things are, I'm glad to see people working together in trying to restore everything as quickly as possible. I just hope the next storm coming up soon doesn't set us back.

To brighten things up, I found THIS on Jezebel and thought it was pretty funny. Hope that at least puts a smile on some faces :)

To my fellow New Yorkers (and east coasters), I hope you are all doing well and are safe!

Hi Audrey,

Have been thinking of all you, living over there.
So glad that you are staying with your relatives and hope that the power will be back on soon, so you can live back home.

Enjoy the weekend

Yikes, I've been cringing every time I hear hurricane horror stories. It sounds like a freaking nightmare. And it makes me depressed to realize how many billions of dollars of damage was done. As if our country wasn't suffering financially enough. Sigh.

I'm glad you're safe though. That's the most important thing!

Veronica Lee said...

So glad you are safe. I shudder to think of the aftermath. What is our world coming to?

bridechic said...

So glad you're out of harm's way and finding the time to reach out and connect. So sad to see all the wreckage. We were in NY during 9/11 and made it through the 1989 earthquake here in SF. These disasters take time to recover from believe me

As a native New Yorker (whose family still lives in Staten Island), I am devastated to see the damage that Sandy caused. I only hope that the country can rally together to rebuild the beautiful Shore and NYC. :)

Hey girl,

I'm glad you're safe, and I hope your power comes back to you soon. My thoughts have been on you east coasters all week!

Oh to Be a Muse said...

Hopefully now the tri-state area will be better equipped for hurricanes. I grew up in Florida, so I know what it's all about. The photo of Ground Zero flooded looks crazy, but at least people have come together.
