Testing... Testing... 1-2-3...

Well folks, it's been ugly but my family and friends made it through and I'm thankful to say with minimal damage (all things considered) and no injuries! The worst that happened was my son's car was crushed and totaled by an old oak tree, luckily it was parked at the time! Electricity and internet were out for days but have just been restored and we're beginning to clean up and move forward North of Philly.

My concerns and thoughts are with everyone in New Jersey, New York and further north, 
what horrible, horrible devastation. 
I can truly say I hope and pray this was a once in a lifetime storm! 

I'll be making the rounds to see what you've all been up to
and I'd like to thank everyone for your concerns for me and Earl-we are ok:@)

  7. So glad to hear from you Lynn! We had minimal damage, yet half my next door neighbor's roof flew all over the place! Stores are starting to open and people are lining up with gas cans at the gas stations. We are all safe and only had 12 hours of power outage. My Jersey shore is gone :o(.

  9. So glad to hear you are okay Lynn. We've been through many storms and didn't get power back once for 37 days. You can endure anything if you are okay and everything else can be replaced.

    Nice to have you back on line.

  10. Lynn~ SO glad you & your family (and Earl :) weathered the storm! It was frightening to watch the coverage and see the havoc Sandy wreaked. I had my car crushed by a tree during Hurricane Hugo~ kind of a sick feeling but minor in the scheme of things. Happy Cooking and refilling your fridge and freezer :)

  15. It's good to hear all is well with you. I'm still reeling from the news that is coming out of the northeast. Hurricanes this time of year are uncommon enough, but when one comes along that is so devastating, it's the worst.

  26. Hi Lynn, so happy to hear your son is fine but sorry about his car. I have only intermittent cell phone service. Still no power, water or heat and it's getting cold. So much destruction here! Trees haven't even been cleared yet and wires everywhere. They are saying maybe another week!! I'm checking in with my blog friends whenever I can. Enjoy the heat and light! Linda

    GLad to hear from you and Earl.

  30. So happy to hear that all is well. Cars will come and go, people don't. We learned that when one of our trees fell on a car during a tornado years ago. During the same storm a third grade classmate of my daughter was killed, so sad. Hope all goes well with the recovery!
