The Wrath of Sandy…See What Eye See…

It is mind-blowing what I have been seeing over these last several days. I have been driving when I can and walking around the city to see what I can see. It is heartbreaking to see people without shelter and basic necessities. The destruction Sandy caused is something I will NEVER forget. It has turned New York, New Jersey and Connecticut into places you would not even recognize. Washed away homes, flooded streets, and trees have been blown from their foundations. Just total devastation. Sandy brought us to our knees. Many people are still without power and running water. The temperature here has dropped to below 40 degrees at night and thousands are without heat.  But I will say it could have been so…so much worse. God had mercy on us.

  1. My heart goes out to all. I just can’t believe that it’s taking so long to get supplies to them and get them out of the cold. We sent a million cans of water from Georgia and several EMT’s, medical personnel and electrical crews… Someone in Virginia turned the crews from Alabama away because they weren’t union members. It was a really bad nasty scene.. Georgia and Alabama are both right to work states, so I think they were as shocked at being turned away after traveling so far as they were frustrated that they weren’t going to be allowed to help. 😦 I hope you and yours are doing okay and we are still trying to organize winter clothes to help… FEMA needs to get off their behinds and be more prepared.. (Just my opinion)

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
