Despite being directly in the path of Hurricane Sandy, our little neck of the woods escaped relatively unscathed (a few broken branches and a few hours of power loss). I am very grateful for that but a bit perplexed how it could have come ashore less than 60 miles away from us yet barely do anything to our area. Not that I’m complaining! I know many in the area have been really affected (including my sisters-in-law who are still without power).
Thank you for all your concern and e-mails checking on our well-being. We are all safe and sound and grateful for our amazing good luck. I should have posted earlier but the schools were closed for the past two days and I’ve had my hands full with that.)
To all of you who weren’t so lucky, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
