This has been a bit of a chaotic week with Sandy barreling through NY, leaving a good part of my area without power for days. I was down for 2 1/2 days and finally got Cable and internet back on Thursday night but at my office we're still without phone and internet service.
There are lots of huge trees down all over the place and horrific flooding in many areas.
I'm here.. I'm safe and all's good over here for the most part. Once trucks can get out and fill our stations with fuel and our grocery stores with food things will be sort of normal around here. I'm guessing by the middle of next week things should be better, grocery shopping yesterday was weird to say the least. I've never seen grocery store shelves empty before O_o
I'll be around more soon.. Thanksgiving is coming up (yikes, already!) and it's going to be Christmas cookie time before ya know it.
If you were affected by Sandy at all, stay safe, be strong and anyone who wasn't affected by Sandy if you've got the means to help in any way it's greatly appreciated. whether it's a monetary donation, food, or clothing lots of people lost everything in this superstorm that barreled through.
