I am in central new York and at about 6:20pm we started to feel the effects of Hurricane Sandy and I am not liking it!! I can not imagine what people have been dealing with all day and in the area it is going to make land fall. Just saw on the news that New York City is getting lots of water right now. So please as you can let us know you are ok because I forgot where every one is but Harmony =) but she knows what those of us in the path are dealing with.

I don't like it much either April...:(...

We live in Ontario Canada and have had wind and rain, and I was really worried our power was going to go out.

Hope you and your kids are ALL fine...

My heart goes out to ALL.

Oh my,  yes I do know what you're going through right now and believe me, everyone has been in my prayers.  I just heard over 4 million are without power.  Like I've been telling my friends up there, just hunker down and hang on.  As soon as it's over, help will be there.  Sixty of our electric company personnel and their work trucks are already in the area ready to start work on restoring power as soon as they can.  I know it's bad and very, very scary for you right now, but as the night progresses, it will let up.  Tomorrow you'll probably get lots of rain and some wind, but it will be winding down.

Yes, all y'all up there in the path of this storm, please check in as soon as you can.

Thankfully it appears those who were worried in my area over reacted but that is ok. All is calm here this morning. My kids have no school due to power outages but we have power at home and eveyone is safe!! I have to work though and just want to go back to bed, lol. Still not feeling 100% after being sick last week (sigh). My heart goes out to those hit hard. I have seen soe pictures that make me really glad we did not get what they thought we would.

Hello everyone:

Well I have to say that we are fine but we had to evacuate.. I live on Long Island NY right near the water and so we left.. I cant begin to tell you what is going on and what you see on news is all true.. I am shocked beyond belief yet so fortunate.

me and my family are at a friends with power and heat and our house has damage but its not that bad. we might not be able to go back home for weeks due to flooding and no safe water and no water supply and no heat..

this has thrown me for a loop but as you guys know I am strong and coping the best I can.

see you all soon as I am on pure survival mode and only thinking about food and water and trying to find gas. The gas lines are two hour wait and most stations are out of gas.. but we are hanging in..

take care

Bless your heart, Free, please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am SO glad to hear that you and yours evaced safely and are in a good place. The devastation that follows a hurricane is something that is hard to grasp if you've never been there. BUT, the the good thing is that we learned SO MUCH from the mess that was Katrina, and those lessons learned are being applied now. Here's hoping your damage was minimal and that you and yours will be back in your home as soon as possible. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
