We Survived Sandy!

November 1, 2012


And thankfully so did Mata Hari! We are so very lucky. Many others nearby were not so fortunate. The pic above shows boats that were on the hard at nearby Liberty Landing marina. Rich and Rene said they were pushed back about 200 yards. We hear Manhattan is still without power below 39th Street and that the Jersey Shore was hit pretty hard. Right now we have no power and spotty cell service (good old AT&T!), but we are just so grateful that we’re okay. Thanks to everyone for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. More soon…

    So glad everyone is ok. Monica, I kept watching updates on Facebook. Your mom kept us pretty well informed. Glad the boat made it through. I am saddened by all the damage and loss of life. It truly does break my heart. I have been through many hurricanes. They are not to be trifled with. Thankfully, my dad always had us prepared for any emergency. We had a two story house in New Orleans to be above the flood. but my old high school got washed away by katrina.

    Take care. keep up with the blog.

    Your cousin, David N.

      Thank you, David! This was our first, well, second if you count Irene, but that was really nothing compared to this devastation. We are learning a lot about how to be prepared for the next one.
