Hurricane Sandy


This is what folks here in my neighborhood woke up to the morning after Hurricane Sandy...




I'll be taking a little break from blogging for a bit. We were very, very lucky. Minimal damage and power fully restored yesterday after 11 days without. Miraculous for us, considering the devastation.

  1. Carol, Glad you & your family are o.k. My donation to the Red Cross was sent last week. They aided my town last October.

  7. I was beginning to think you were on vacation. I am sorry about the damage Sandy left on your neighborhood. But, I am glad you are Ok! Being without electric is horrible, we have gone a week without it years ago. We had to buy a generator after that storm. Take care and I wish some normalcy returns to you and your neighbors.

  11. Holy cow! I can't imagine the devastation and add to that the freezing cold and snow. I donated and I made soup for the blog cause but I wish I could do more.

  12. Carol, I had no idea you lived in this area. I live in NYC and watching the storm and its aftermath everyday is just heartbreaking. I'm so glad you got your power back and that you all came through it safely. Take care and hang in there.

  14. Hi Carol,
    Don't know where you live but we're living the same thing. We have a house at the New Jersey Shore in Chadwick Beach. Horrible devastation all around us. All power, gas, water, etc. turned off and we are not yet allowed back in. Best of luck to you and your neighbors. Judy Morano

    1. South Shore of Long Island, Judy. My family was very, very lucky, minimal damage considering all the devastation around here. Best of luck to you and your family, Jersey got slammed so badly. I hope by now you are able to get back in.

  15. Heartbreaking what is going on, and still so many without power. My sister is still without.
    And then those who have lost everything and are afraid to leave because of all the looting.

    2 weeks and they still have no help!

    Glad you are back on!

  18. The damage is unbelievable. I'm so glad to hear that you weren't affected too badly, although I'm sure many of your neighbors and friends were. Take care, and I'll look forward to your return to blogging, whenever that is.

  27. Wow, glad you okay but I understand how heartsick you are about all the devastation - we've been through several terrible hurricanes here in North Carolina and it really hits you hard even if you don't have a ton of personal damage. Hope the recovery goes quickly and things begin to feel somewhat normal again very soon!

  39. Wow!! That's crazy! Being from Florida I've seen many scenes like that after the hurricanes and tropical storms. So glad you had minimal damage, but 11 days without power is a long time to go. Nobody can really imagine how hard it is unless they've been through it. Hope things are getting back to normal for you now. Sending thoughts and prayers your way!

  42. Well that explains why I've been missing you, so glad you are OK. Wow never have seen devastation which looks so clean and pristine, suppose no dirt or grime could stand up to that super-storm Sandy powerwash.

  43. HI Carol, I am so sorry about the devastation there. I have not been actively reading blogs in the last few months and missed your posts. I am glad you were spared heavy damage but having to be without power so long certainly sounds taxing. Please take care and know that I am glad to hear that your town is putting things back together.
