After Hurricane Sandy

There is bad news here on Long Island...

My street is on the North shore, we have a lot of trees down...

The South Shore is worse... many houses are under water or got washed away.

In Breezy Point, Brooklyn 100+ houses burned down...

and in NYC there is the flooding in the subway...

Somehow, at my house we are lucky enough to keep
 electricity, wifi, and tv....

We are very thankful today!

Our neighbors are eating, showering, 
and spending time at my house... 

Our prayers go out to all who were in harm's way...
Stay strong!
