What I am seeing on the news is astounding. Sandy Storm was a damaging as was predicted, maybe worse. Had to believe that 100 homes burnt down, Wall Street was closed, and all public transportation in and out of New York came to a halt! Have the subways ever been flooded before?

Did not New Jersey get hit hard? The scenes on the television are incredible! I live 100 miles NW of Seattle. I sent a check to the Red Cross...

Safe, although I did not believe I would be last night. I was alone, in the dark, with the floodwaters 30 inches high around my house. I am extremely grateful for low tide today.

My son is in college in New York, not far from where all those families lost their homes to fire because the firemen couldn't get through the flooded streets. He has no power, but is safe and I am so grateful.prayers to the many impacted and dealing with devastation and loss of loved ones and their homes today.

All is not well.. there are many homeless, injured, and even some deaths. There are billions of dollars in damage.

Last night was a frightening night on the east coast of the U.S... just hoping all is well.

TODAY well lived makes every YESTERDAY a memory of happiness and every TOMORROW a vision of hope!!
