Hurricane Sandy

          I just wanted to take the time to offer my condolences to those who are dealing with Hurricane Sandy.  I grew up in the Northeast; many of my friends and family are still in the region.  From what I can gather, they are all safe, although there has been quite a bit of flooding and power outages.  I am also grateful to see our politicians laying aside their campaigning to deal with this disaster, as this is an issue that transcends partisanship.  
          If you want to help out with disaster relief - either by donating time, money, or blood - the Red Cross is a good resource.  Anne-Marie, over at the blog "The Menacing Kitten", also offers some excellent tips for donating in the wake of a disaster.   


  1. I am glad that the early warnings seem to have helped get a lot of people out of harm's way. There will be a lot of property damaged, but I don't think there is anywhere in the world where some kind of severe weather doesn't pose a threat.

    1. It's good to see people taking this seriously - staying safe is not something to be taken lightly!

  2. I saw the images of Atlantic City after the hurricane, and they reminded me of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. I hope all those devastated by the storm get the help they need.


I love hearing comments and I welcome all viewpoints; however, I request that if you do choose to comment, please do so in a manner that is constructive and respectful of others.
