|Tree Down in my Backyard|
|Boats Jumbled Together at a Marina in Brant Beach|
After being affected by Hurricane Sandy I’ve learned that preparedness is a NECESSITY. Looking outside my window Monday night watching my trees rip up from the roots, and feeling the earth shake when they slammed to the ground was something I’ll never forget. Waking up the next morning I thought my neighborhood got it bad. But I was wrong.
With the power out and service extremely minimal, I decided to use up some of my cell phone battery to check Facebook and see how my friends and family were doing. After seeing pictures of Long Beach, the AC Boardwalk and parts of NYC underwater, I was speechless. With houses wiped away and lives taken I wish I could’ve done something to prevent it all from happening. I was not expecting something like this to happen.
With many of us still without power there is not much else to do except spend quality time with family and friends, and help a neighbor in need. Times may be dark now but there's always a light at the end of the road.
