Hurricane Sandy

Or as I like to call her:
Silica Bitch. 
I am posting from my Iphone
Under 50 blankets in my freezing 
bedroom as the electric is not yet corrected
AND since we had a full crawl space of sea water,
About 2 feet in our attached garage amd missed 
entering the house by ONE inch,
Its cold in here.  
Even when electric gets turned on, we cannot until we rewire/abd get all new
Air con and heat units as ours are seeming corroded by the sea water. 
That said, we were so lucky.  
Our property was covered in cat tails,
The river must have flowed in and out a few times.  It 
knocked down the wood playset, filled the hed,
Turned over 3 giant leland cypresses we planted about 10 years ago.
Pulled mike's new holly bushes outand the wind  threw
down a few massive trees... But compared to our neighbors and other ares of town
And SEA BRIGHT, a 15 minute walk fron my house to the beach town
that is now completely destroyed, we are incredibly lucky...
My family is safe and so is our home... Just needs some work.  

I have so much to say and nothing.  
That us all I can for now.  
Just support any one affected by this natural disaster.  
We are sttarting by having a displaced friend stay in our
"igloo" with us and reaching out to other friends in need.  
I know there will be a lor of charitable opportunities 
and as I hear of "good" ones, I will reach out...
In the  meantime don't forget about the JERSEY SHORE!
