Our donation has been sent…wishing all in the affected areas our best!
Thank you for helping. It’s absolutely amazing how the entire country and world for that matter has reached out to help.
We too have donated to fixing the wronged 😦
Hugs to those affected!
Uru, you are an angel. All those affected thank you as do I.
Being in NYC, all the pictures are really hard to believe. I walked through Central Park today and was amazed at the size of the trees that were uprooted by the wind – the poor coastal areas where there was wind, rain, and the storm surge are in so much need.
It is unnerving isn’t it. I walked around also in Brooklyn and Fort Greene Park has uprooted tree’s, downed limbs and is off limits to visitors. It really blows my mind every time I think of the hardest hit area’s and the extent of damage and destruction.
So sad and devastating!! Thanks for posting. I will donate as well when I log onto my regular computer…on my iPhone currently. So sad but it’s great that people are reaching out to spread the word, like you are doing.
Thank you, we delivered 3 carloads of donated items today to 2 shelters in the area. It is unbelievable really, still in a state of shock.
These photos and others really hit hard! It seems so unbelievable.
I have the same sinking feeling looking at all the Sandy devastation, that I had on 9/11, extreme sadness.
How wonderful of you to bring donations to a shelter. They must be running out of supplies as fast as they come in.
Please take care.
Well, they need just about everything, especially warm clothing for everyone especially for babies. There is food and water, but basic toiletries are desperately needed for all, baby formula, diapers etc… no one knows how long they will be in shelters either.
This is so sad and scary. Many have no homes to go back to either : (
The damage is unreal. Very eerie how similar these photos are to Katrina wreckage.
It really does mirror Katrina, which is very scary considering Katrina was a cat 4 and this was not even a hurricane technically cat 1 downgraded to cyclone. Can you imagine the damage if it had been a higher grade hurricane. The “perfect storm” resulted from Sandy combining with a strong cold front, I don’t really understand why it caused it to be such a strong storm but hope it never happens again.
it’s all so terrible!! We are all mourning and are all behind you here in Australia. Take care
Such devastation, it really is so hard to believe.
Honestly, its so touching hearing people from half way around the world pulling for us here in NYC. Thank you so much it means more than you can possibly imagine the support and prayers we get from our friends abroad.
It really is, things are starting to look up, subway svc is slowly being restored, electric is on in some area’s but not in some of the hardest hit areas unfortunately. Thanks so much!
I actually didn’t realize you were out there. Miriam from Overtime Cook was still without power as of yesterday. This whole blogging thing has made it much more real, as now I “know” people having to deal with this. Sending you the best of thoughts.
Yes, my neighborhood was very lucky not to lose power, others not so lucky like Miriam. We also escaped the terrible damage and devastation. Thanks so much for your thoughts and well wishes.
Wow! I did not realized places were hit that hard. That is great that you are putting the word out for help. Amazingly when things like this happen, people do seem to really pull together.
Those pictures only tell a very small part of the story, honestly it is mind blowing the devastation here. It is so true in hard times, times like these people pull together for the most part. it’s heartwarming. Hope you are doing better!
It’s hard to hit “like” on a post that is so tragic, but I do like that you’re helping bring light to the devastation.
I know, what’s to like about such a tragic situation. I don’t like it at all. But it’s good to keep it in the forefront so we can be reminded that we who are warm and dry and have a roof over our heads should help those that do not. Thank you!
gosh, suzanne, those are incredible in an awful way. i’d not seen most of those pics. thank you for posting them. I hope you and your pugs are doing well. best, emily
It’s even worse seeing it in real life, it is amazing how NY and NJ are rebounding, still a lot to do but things are slowly coming back. We are all ok, thanks so much!
