I can barely tear myself away from the TV. I’ve been glued to the storm coverage since Sunday. It’s just unbelievable to see the magnitude of Sandy’s destruction. It doesn’t even look real.
But I know it’s very real for so many of you. I’m hoping that all of you in Sandy’s path, your families, your friends, and your neighbors, are ok. I know I’ve got at least one reader in New Jersey, one in Upstate New York and Rhode Island, and another on Long Island. Fred, Cindy, Deegee, and all you others, I'm thinking of all of you that actually live in the areas of the images I’ve been watching so intently.
I understand almost seven million people have lost power over the last 24 hours. Today I noticed readers coming from Virginia, where I’ve been watching several feet of snow carpet the streets, from New Jersey, where I’ve been watching several feet of water flooding the streets, and from New York City, where the lower part of Manhattan’s skyline went completely dark last night. When I saw these places on my blog statistics, I wanted to reach through the Internet and give you all a great big hug.
For those of you that have power, I’d love it if you’d leave a comment or send an email, if you feel like sharing your experience. Or just to say that you are ok.
For the rest of you that might be glued to the TV just like I am, here’s a link to the American Red Cross, where you can make a donation to help those that will definitely need our help over the coming months.
