Well, Sandy blew through here (not literally but she may as well have) yesterday and last night. We made it through relatively unscathed. No power, but the house is still standing, thank God. Both our families are okay. A few trees went down on the property, and trees and power lines are down all over the tri-state area. But no major flooding around here. New York is a disaster. No idea how long before we get the power back. Next door neighbor let us use power from their generator, so we have internet, and I can charge my cell phone, so we are connected to the outside world, at least for now. Time to clean up what we can, hunker down, sit tight, and wait. It could have been a whole lot worse. All in all, we are very blessed.
