HURRICANE SANDY: WE SURVIVED

Hello readers. Just a quick post to let you know that I survived a long with my family this annoying supposed hurricane. I am originally from Jamaica and this was more of a tropical storm than a hurricane. But none the less this natural disaster came and took lives not only here in The United States, but also in Jamaica and the Bahamas where it started out. My prayers go out to the people back in my home country and to those here in the US that have lost people. Also I just wanted to post a picture of what outside of my house looked like. I live a cross the street from a stream if you can call it that and this thing turned into a monster and destroyed a lot of property.

NEIGHBOR'S CAR FLOODED...WITH THE REST OF THE BACK YARD AND FRONT
ALL THE DIRT AND GARBAGE THAT WAS LEFT THIS MORNING
That happens to be my backyard and the last pic on the right hand side my front yard. I would say it was about 4 to 5 feet of water that was out there. The water came rushing down the street taking with it trees, cars, and whatever else was out there last night. A lot of people are without power and I am very thankful I am not one of them. But since the basement was flooded I am without hot water which isn't so bad considering what else could have happened.

Many hospitals and other places had to evacuate patients. Once again my heart and prayers go out to them that they are all safe and that no one lost their lives during transport.

I thank everyone for keeping us here on the east coast in your thoughts. Now all we have to do is clean up our state and get the city that never sleeps back on its feet. I have lost two days of work ergo two days of wages so this Sandy was a pain in the you know what. Thank you once again for keeping us in your thoughts.
