After the Storm

I'm at a loss for words. Superstorm Sandy has come and gone but two weeks later we are still cleaning up after her. In my house, we went 12 days without power, which seemed like a lifetime, even though I know that we got lucky. We didn't have any flooding or other damage to our house, we have gas stoves and a gas water heater, so the only things we couldn't do were turn on the lights and surf the internet. Boohoo.

Many other people out there lost their homes, their cars, everything. The devastation from the storm is widespread and sadly many families out there are still trying to figure out what they'll do now. There are still families out there that still don't have power.
