The Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy
It’s the day after Hurricane Sandy and we’re still reeling from
the experience. Since we were advised to stay indoors yesterday, all we could do was listen uncomfortably to the sounds outside. The
heavy sheets of rain and gusts of winds from the superstorm (no longer
considered a hurricane) caused our windows to rattle so hard that we feared the
glass would break. It was also unsettling to hear the building shaking and
creaking from the pressure of the storm railing outside. Even more disturbing
was listening to the news on TV and personal updates on Facebook about the
devastation caused by Sandy on family and friends. Hurricane Sandy has
definitely wreaked havoc and immense destruction upon us, and we’re all trying
to pick up the pieces. Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone. Be safe!
In the meantime, a few light-hearted highlights from Hurricane Sandy...
The parody twitter account @HurricaneSandy is a hoot! Among my favorite tweets were, “No guys, I didn’t get Herpes from passing through the Jersey Shore”
I can’t find a single pizza place that’s open today but liquor stores? They’re open everywhere! Clearly, the city has its priorities
