On Monday, we were bracing for Superstorm Sandy to come roaring through here like, well, a hurricane.
As it turns out, we were lucky. Things didn’t get nearly as bad as the experts were saying it could have been—not here, at least. We had crazy wind and rain for several hours last night, and although thousands of people in the area lost power, we were not one of those households. I woke up at 3:30 a.m. last night, and listened… the winds had died down significantly, and I knew the worst was over for us. We got up and went to work this morning. It was a normal day.
But for so many millions of others, I know that today was far from normal. And I’m not quite sure when “normal” will come again.
Looking at the damage from downstate was (is) very sobering. And unimaginable. To all those who live in areas that suffered severe or catastrophic damage… my thoughts are with all of you. I hope that your lives are able to return to some semblance of your everyday lives very soon.
How did everyone out there fare through the storm? I hope everyone is safe, and HOME.
