Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy.
I finally got my power back today after three days of
 no power. I didnt have any damage except for part of a 
fence in the back yard falling over.  I have never in all my 
years seen so much damage to Long Island, NY.  This is a photo
 of Long Beach, NY. I work with people who live there.   
It looks like a war zone. I do not live by the water,
 about fifteen minutes away.  Anyone who lives by the
 water really has some damage.  I feel very
blessed.  My heart goes out to everyone.  So many
 people lost their homes.  You see so many stories 
like this but until it hits yours area you cant
 understand it.  I am so thankful for lights and heat.
  Its amazing what we take for granted on a daily basis.
  It does make you think about things
differently.  Since it is November, Thanksgiving has come a
little early for me.

I'm so glad you were spared too much damage, Cindy. My brother-in-law in CT was without power for much of the week, too. As he said, "it gets old after a day or two!"
