Surviving Sandy

The impact of Hurricane Sandy was felt hard in our area, coming ashore Monday, October 29, we lost power simultaneous with her arrival.

  Taking advantage of power and water, we hurriedly prepared many meals in anticipation of days without either of these luxuries.  Our two WWOOFers, Claire and Lucia, had flights for home that needed to be delayed and rearranged and the novelty of experiencing a hurricane was, at first, very exciting.  Once our power was out, we kept busy playing endless card and board games.
After the storm, we took a walk down the driveway and across the street to the beach.  Our property damage was not as severe as we experienced during Tropical Storm Irene in 2011.
Six days without power left us appreciating many aspects of our life that were taken for granted in days gone past and we are keeping a candle lit for our friends in neighboring areas in hopes their lives find some respite soon.
