the images from NYC, NJ and parts of PA (where I live)...I hope all are safe...what a mess
I had no power for 4 days. Got and hooked up a generator and kept clean, informed and warm!
I only endured the minor inconvenience of no electricity, but many around me fared much much worse.
My heart goes out to ALL who suffered the ravages of this storm!
I lived through the direct path of Charlie a few years back. I was fortunate that I only lost electricity for a few hours, but others lost it for several days (8-10 days).
There were lots of issues, downed trees, roofs blown off, power loss, no gas, etc. Everything stood still for a few days, but it wasn't before long that things were business as usual. It sounds like things are much worse up north.
I hope things are back to "normal" soon.
If normal equals crazy, than Long Island is fine. Folks around here have lost their minds... I fared well overall, just being without power, but there was no property damage and no losses of any significance. I count my blessings, hope I get on the grid before long and the gas lines go down before my car goes dry. Being that I work in tech support for a hospital, I have to remain connected somehow...either it be by driving in or online. Neither option is appealing or readily available at this time... My heart also goes out to those on the south shore with absolutely nothing to go back to, as well as those in other coastal areas facing the same issues. If I had my means about me, I could do far more.
Lost power here twice, 4 and a half hours on the Monday evening of the storm, then just after midnight it came on for about 15 minutes and went out again for another 55 minutes. Other than that my area of Delaware County, PA was pretty much untouched.
and no heat or hot water. But I am lucky because I still have my house and a roof over my head. A lot of people have it a lot worse than I do. Luckily, I filled my gas tank up but I don't look forward to waiting on line for gas.
...goes out to all of the folks affected by Sandy. But, they will come through this stronger. By all means, if you have any additional funds, please make a contribution to the Red Cross or The Salvation Army to benefit these folks.
