Just popping on here today to report in after Hurricane Sandy came rumbling through Maryland. We somehow managed to come out of it all pretty easily. We only lost power for about 24 hours while all around us I can still hear the drone of generators.
When our power came back on and I finally got the chance to watch the news, the images coming in from New Jersey and New York were overwhelming.
Each time I pass a glowing light, or turn on my faucet I think of what so many people are living without right now.
Hoping all of you are safe and sound. Check in, won't you?

Glad to hear you are all ok. Keeping your country in my thoughts. The images are heartbreaking.
All we had here was wind…and it’s still blowing. The devastation is really unbelievable, isn’t it? Glad you and yours are safe.
Thank you so much, Jane. The images are hard to wrap my head around. xo.
It is unbelievable. It’s so hard to make myself believe that what I’m seeing on the news is real. My heart breaks for all those people.
Pleased you are safe and snug. On the news here they kept reporting it as a storm the size of Europe. Difficult to wrap your head around.
Here in central CT, power is gradually being restored. We were on the wind side of the storm, and it was pretty intense for a while on Monday. Miraculously, our power stayed on. This was a great relief to me after the 9-day winter storm outage last year at the same time. Most of our NYC and NJ friends fled their areas and are fine. Glad you guys are well and have power in MD!
We never did lose power but that wind was something. My parents lost theirs for about 36 hours but no big trees came down on their property so they are thankful for that. Bth of my grandmothers in PA are still without power but their homes are fine. All in all we are counting ourselves very lucky.
Coming from the lower Hudson Valley…We were fortunate to not lose power, but everyone around us did. School cancelled for a whole week is unprecedented. LOTS of huge trees down, power lines everywhere and many many friends south of here (lower NY and northern Jersey) still don’t have power. Yes…like you, feeling fortunate for light and water. Hearing lots of rumors about gas issues.
So glad your family is safe. I have a cousin in NJ without power, but he and his family are safe. Of course, we are back in Arizona now after our time in DC. Just hot here 😉
