Sandy Shores

We are back in our home town, but not back in our home. We need too much work - new heating and hot water systems, washer and dryer, insulation in the crawl space under our home. Most of the electricity works, but electric guy comes today to assess the situation. We have cable but cable guy - who was in the neighborhood yesterday - said lines were damaged and need replacement. They will work temporarily and then die.

We spent yesterday emptying the garage and throwing out a lot of stuff. We also took a ride around the island. The pictures below show what Sandy left at the end of the island. Lots and lots of sand.  It looks like a neighborhood after a snowstorm, except there are piles of sand instead of snow.

  1. I'd forgotten you live in that area. What a disaster! Hope it isn't too long before things are restored to the new normal.

  3. Although I'm on the opposite side of the country, I feel so connected to this terrible storm because of the personal stories that have been posted on blogs. I hope your clean up goes quickly. Thanks for taking the time to keep us updated. We do care.

  4. I am so sorry you have so many problems and hope they are solved soon.
    Those pictures are amazing. I have been in many hurricanes in Florida and have never seen sand like you all have.
    Nana well stated my thoughts.

  5. What a wallop your area took. It is so heart breaking to see and hear about the damage. And what can you do but deal with it one day at a time? My positive thoughts go out to you.

  6. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. The extent of the damage throughout the Northeast is mindboggling. Recovery will come, but it will take time.
