A lot of people who read this blog are from Australia, Canada and Kuwait (really,) so you might not have heard about Hurricane Sandy and it’s devastating effects on the East Coast, particularly my home state of New Jersey.
My mom was ok but my brother and his girlfriend only got power back on Thursday. Mom said the wind was the most terrifying sound she ever heard, and at 74 she’s been through quite a few storms. She said it sounded like a woman moaning, crying.
My friend, Meghan, said another storm is expected in a few days, so she’s pretty nervous. It might be rain, but as the night temperature has dropped to about 27 degrees F now everyone is afraid there might be snow.
If there is one good thing that happened it’s that for once the politicians worked together. Everyone I spoke with from home is giving high marks to Governor Chris Christi and President Obama. Let’s hope the trend continues after the election is over and the power is back on.
Tonight kids in New Jersey are celebrating Halloween. I hope it helps give everyone a little stress relief break.
My thoughts are with you, New Jersey.
