Still praying for everyone. Has anyone heard from smitty? I am also waiting for news from two other dear friends in NYC. Haven't heard from family in NJ or Boston but I think it may be due to power outages. What a mess!! I hope Midgie made it home last night. Guess I better go to the Diner next... woozy

I do not find Dar's street on the list of closures so it may be spared. I did find the power was out though in her area and there are downed trees which may prevent her from getting home. Fingers crossed!

Finall heard from my Aunt in Conn. She's fine, not even a power outage. Her sons, however, who are near the coast got hit hard and are without electricity since last night. Dunno when it will return. At least all are safe and unhurt.

Lotus, Thank you for your concern.
We are fine and feel extremely fortunate. All we had were flickering lights all night and some really scary winds. There are many downed trees and crushed cars but nobody hurt in my neck of the woods. Family in New Jersey and Long Island went through a more severe night and suffered some damage but are okay. They do not have power as most other areas and probably won't for days to a week.

My heartfelt prayers go out to all those who lost loved ones and suffered far worse damages. This most definitely is the worst storm I have seen here in all my years. I haven't seen everything shut down like this since 9/11. No school for the kids again tomorrow.

The good news is......Trick or Treating is not cancelled, just be cautious. zombie

Well, that was one WICKED storm! We lost our power for part of today, but we're back up and running for the moment.

I've never been in a hurricane with the winds that Sandy had: UNBELIEVABlE! They just blew and blew with a ferocity I had not heard before. Our neighbor next door had TWO of his huge trees just get uprooted and down they went on his car and carport.
The neighbor across the street had a tree fall on the back roof of his house and went right through to the rooms.
I was such a nervous wreck for all the hours of howling--there was no letup.

I am happy to be back to "normal" but feel sorry for all those that had it worse than we did. My gosh: Manhattan got flooded in many areas!! I never heard of that before, and I grew up there!

I pray for the others that were affected by this storm, since it left a trail of utter destruction in it's wake.

Glad you're safe Mary! Yes, I am was born and raised in Manhattan and this was the worst. I cannot believe the devastation all around us. Fortunately, we dealt with the same as you..howling winds, downed trees, some without power.

Our electricity came back on a few hours ago! Our internet service provider is still out of commmission, but my husband has rigged a connection through his iPhone, though it's verrry slow.

We've toured the local neighborhood -- lots of trees and electrical wires down. School is still out locally.

Thanks for everyone's thoughts and prayers! We are now having gorgeous weather. thumbsup
