30 October 2012

And the clean up begins...

This morning I woke up, turned to Sammy, and said 'We did it, baby girl!'

We survived the whole night alone (I hate being home alone overnight) and without power or heat.

Sandy hit us and beat us up...

Trees are down.
Power lines are down.
Phone poles are snapped.
Roofs have been blown off.
Cell service is extremely spotty.
In NYC, the whole front of two separate buildings blew off.
Seaside Heights has washed away -- that's a bonus though.

The power company said it could be 7-10 days until things are restored. But the mess that Sandy left behind will take weeks - maybe even months - to clean up.

Prayers for all involved <3

Glad you guys are OK. Cell towers were down in our area, and we were out of electric, but I thought about you.

(BTW, not to be one of "those people", but that first picture is a fake from "The Day After Tomorrow" movie)
