BACK ON LINE

HI EVERYONE,  HOPE ALL IS WELL WITH YOU,  ESPECIALLY THOSE CAUGHT UP WITH "SANDY"/  i'M ON STATEN ISLAND, BUT LIVE ON THE 7TH FLOOR OF A HIGH RISE BUILDING SO I ONLY LOST POWER,  FOR FOUR DAYS, BUT THAT IS VERY LUCKY, CONSIDERING WHAT HAPPENED TO SO MANY PEOPLE.  WE DIDN'T HAVE HOT WATER OR HEAT BUT IT WASN'T THAT COLD.  THE GAS LINES HERE ARE REDICULOUS SO I'M NOT EVEN TRYING UNTIL THINGS SETTLE DOWN.
MY SON, WHO LIVES IN OLD BRIDGE, NEW JERSEY WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO GET A GENERATOR.  HIS POWER CAME BACK ON YESTERDAY.  THE ONLY GOOD THING ABOUT THIS WAS THAT I HAVE MY GRANDCHILDREN HERE AND THEY ALWAY LIFT ME UP.  MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO ALL.  ESPECIALLY THE FAMILIES WHO LOST SOMEONE.
TAKE CARE MY SISTERS, LOVE YOU ALL.  GAIL

Gail, glad you are doing well. I know that being without power for a few days was aggrevating BUT I can\'t and won\'t complain when others have lost so much.
Hugs, MaryLou

Hi Gail, I am so glad to hear it was not too bad for you! Except for losing a day of work, we made out okay here in Maryland. So sorry for those badly hit! Thanks for checking in. Hugs, Belinda
