Hurricane, Cyclone, Super Storm, Royal Mess Maker Sandy has come and gone, leaving disaster and discomfort.
I live 35 minutes north of New York City and I expected the worse- lose of power, broken windows, and no water for days maybe even weeks.
The wind was nasty, like I have never heard before, I watched a branch ripped out of a near by tree and land on a neighbors car, take off again and almost hit my window. If this was only a small hurricane, I have no interest in being in a big one.
In the end, we had storms this past summer with more rain than came with Sandy and the power only flashed off and on several times, but that was it.
I watched the storm come and go. Seeing the devastation is heart breaking. I was so close, yet came out of the storm just fine.
I want to do something but I cannot get anywhere- a few trains are starting to run in and out of upper Manhattan, but I do not want to take a seat from someone needing to check their business or someone wanting to leave the city. I would need 2 other buddied to drive in and yet I cannot drive too far because the gas stations are running out of fuel.
If you have ever wanted to buy one my patterns NOW is the time. You get a lovely pattern and someone somewhere on the East Coast will get some help.
Please help me – Help them
In the mean time, I am going to start sorting thru my winter coats, scarves, mittens and hats, people who have lost everything are going to need winter items soon.
