Sandy Update

Hello everyone.

I apologize for the lack of posts this week. I'm afraid there won't be many thanks to Hurricane Sandy.

JD and I and our families are safe. Luckily our homes were not damaged in the storm, though my street did turn into quite the river for a good portion of the last two days and two of our lower lying rooms flooded. Neither of us have power. We are hoping JD's is restored some time tomorrow but that depends on how far the water came. We've heard that it is pretty bad downtown. It could take days. Who knows when I will get power back at my house. My neighbors reported seeing a full telephone pole float by in their backyard last night. Most of the lines on my street came down and part of someone's dock ended up on the corner at the end of the street. I'm hoping that they'll get the power lines cleaned up soon but the damage is so widespread across the island so it may take longer than we hope.

So, I am not expecting to blog for a couple of days.

If you got hit by the storm I hope that you and your families are safe.


Thank you so much for taking the time to read and share your thoughts. I love hearing from you!
