So Many Books. So Little Time. Let's Review!

Hurricane Sandy

I’ve been watching the news all morning, and I have to say that even being a native of a very hurricane-prone state, this storm is just unbelievable.  Of course, the damage is compounded by the fact that it hit such a highly populated part of the country.  It’s horrifying to see the destruction left behind, and to think of those who have lost so much, and have so many days ahead before life can even begin to return to normal.  I am sending prayers, healing energy, and my very best wishes to everyone who has been affected by Sandy, and who might still be in harm’s way.  Now is the time to donate to organizations like The American Red Cross.  People with no homes to return to will need that help desperately.  (Like the residents of the EIGHTY homes that burned to the ground in part of New York.)  My guess is, there are a lot of people with nothing left but the clothes on their backs, and my heart goes out to them, as I’m sure yours does, as well. 

It’s just a sad, sad time for so many. 

And for those of us lucky enough to have been spared Sandy’s wrath, a healthy sense of gratitude wouldn’t be amiss!

  1. I was stunned this morning when I read of the fire in NY. Incredible destruction.

  2. The entire story is shocking. I can’t quite get my mind around that much damage and that many people impacted so severely. No power, water, or cell service. Trapped in flooded homes (though some of that might have been avoided by those who willingly ignored evacuation orders), and homes totally washed away, burned down, or smashed to splinters. They can’t start restoring power to large portions of NYC until the Army Corps of Engineers drains the water from the tunnels where the lines are. The subways are flooded with salt water, and the commuter trains as well. How do you even start cleaning up stuff like that, much less get it functioning again? It’s mind-boggling.

    And New Jersey is just tragic. And more places we haven’t even heard about yet. Plus it still isn’t over!
