My family lives on the East Coast. It has been a nail biting couple of days. Watching CNN for hours. Checking our phones for texts. Waiting for news.
My partners mother in Southern New Jersey never lost electricity and is fine. No flooding to speak of.
My partners sister in Northern New Jersey has been without electricity for a day now. She was told she had to report to work today! Can you believe it? In the middle of this mess her company told her to report to work. She was worried she would lose her job. So she risked her safety to go to work. They should be ashamed! Who is thinking of going out to a restaurant to eat in this disaster?!
My brother and family live along the Jersey shore and they decided to stick it out through the storm. Their house is up high. They say only their garage is flooded. They have no electricity and no internet and no cable. Roughing it! They prepared for it and they seem fine. They have been texting to give us daily updates.
My heart goes out to everyone touched by this disaster. The photos of my old stomping ground are devastating and heartbreaking. The hours I spent at Seaside Heights and Long Beach Island as a child and now to see the photos. Broke my heart! The boardwalk at Atlantic City is gone. So sad.
Everyone be safe!
