Hurricane Sandy and after effects...
Thu, 11-08-2012 - 12:21pm

Hi ladies,

Sorry that I haven't been online in a couple of weeks.  I am 11 days without power and can only get online sporadically.  Hurricane Sandy ravaged Westchester (where I live), NYC and Long Island (where I'm staying with my parents who have heat).  Last night, a Nor'Easter dumped half a foot of snow in the area.  We are hoping to have power back by this weekend but it is looking unlikely. 

I just wanted to pop in and say hello.  Hopefully, I will be back on and posting more frequently once I can get home.

How did everyone else fare in the storm? Anyone in the NY area?

So sorry to hear about being affected by the storm! Thats awful- I can't imagine being away from my home right now as sick as I am, praying for you and your family. Hopefully this time in life passes soon!

Glad your okay have somewhere to go to at least get heat. Hope your power comes back on soon. I know my DH's boss how is in Hoboken got power back. Don't know how he's doing after the latest storm. Stay safe out there.

I'm so sorry that you still don't have power!! My parents (in NJ) got their power back on Sunday night but I know part of their town lost power again yesterday due to the snow storm. Both of my parents sounded like they were going to have a breakdown and I hate that I'm so far away and can't help. 

I really hope that your power comes on very soon and that you can go back to your own home!
