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.
AboutI'm Heather. I'm 31 and have been married to Michael for five years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
