Best wishes

To all my friends on the east coast of the U.S. – hope you didn’t get hit too hard by the storm and have power so you can read chapter 9!

    Thanks. So far, Maine has had very little damage, but other places have been completely wiped off the map. It’s very frightening to watch, and I couldn’t imagine what those poor people are going through. Looking at pictures of NY under water is so horrible! The Atlantic City Boardwalk is gone. It’s very surreal.

    It has been an anxious day for many in our country. I have family on the eastern seaboard who have all checked in so I know they’re safe. I’m glad you’re safe, Kazy, and I agree with you about the pictures. It is amazing how destructive nature can be. Cars in trees. A boat on train tracks, Wall Street under water, the hundred burned out houses on Long Island. I mean, how does a house burn down in the pouring rain?

      Just saw on the news; one area (blocks and blocks) that went down in flames, was Breezy Point (NY?). My first thought is that it was due to busted gas lines; that is always a big worry besides power being out. It was an area populated with many cops and firefighters; most lost everything though water was all around them. No pressure, debris clogging the lines. What hurt doubly was that this area lost many in 9/11, then there was the downed aircraft.

      It seems to be, like in many places in America, resilience is almost immediate. There is already talk of coming back and rebuilding.

      A resident of the area who lost her house said to pray for them.
      My prayers are certainly with them. Not living in the area, I have nothing else I can do

        It all looks terrifying even from so far away. I have a friend stuck in NYC at the moment and she’s getting amazing help from everyone – just wonderful how people pull together in a crisis.
