Sandy, The Results

Thankfully, all good news! None of my friends were excessively affected by Hurricane Sandy. Of everyone I knew (Ron, Margaret & Philip (from CEHS) and Chris F (architect) the worst damage I'm aware of was loss of power. Now that's not pleasant in this day and age, but it is far better than it could have been.

This is going to sound strange, but I'd much rather be a victim of a storm than worry about my friends going through it. They're usually (no offense!) not prepared. At least their community isn't, even if they are.

Morning came around and I heard, directly or indirectly, from all of them. Huge sigh of relief. Especially for Ron. Last year a flood engulfed his place. He's STILL recovering. Another flood would have been devastating. But he's alright. They're all alright. And that makes me alright! Well, a little more alright, if nothing else...
