Big mistake talking about life on “From the Shoulder of Hurricane Sandy“, when indications were common that the worst of the storm hadn’t even approached!
I’m paying for it now, along with a couple hundred thousand of my closest friends. Roughly 66 hours without power and absolutely miserable.
Landed a generator from my good friend, Bob, who was lucky enough to get re-energized a few days ago. Amazing what a difference a little light and a TV can make in your Sanity Level!
On the other hand, we were so very, very fortunate. And although I tend to post something semi-introspective and maybe a tad humorous on our reaction to being blown back into the early 19th century, I will only be able to do that knowing our situation could have been much, much worse.
Good luck to all those facing long-term displacement or the loss of homes.
