The Aftermath

Thank you to everyone who checked in with me yesterday and this morning.  I live on the Upper East Side and did not lose power or experience flooding. The wind was intense though and the tree on my street was not so lucky.  There were some rumors that all of New York lost power.  ConEd preemptively shut off the power to most of lower Manhattan and areas in flood Zone A to prevent transformer explosions and electrical fires. The storm surge has flooded many areas and the clean up is going to take days.  If you would like to assist with the relief efforts, you can make a much needed donation to the Red Cross

    We’ve just been worried sick down here, so happy to see you faired well through it and are online letting readers know. Continued best for you, and all New Yorkers and surrounding areas.

    Glad to hear you are safe. We’ve been watching the news from across the pond in England and hoping there isn’t too many lives lost. One thing we can’t control is nature. Wishing you a better week ahead. Sharon x

    So glad you’re safe. The West Coast is cheering for the East coast for making it through the storm with such courage.

    Heather hope all is safe and well on your end. I almost had my power turned off but luckily we made it through fine here in Queens. It was a scary time for us all indeed.

    Thank you for sharing with us. Best wishes for you hon!

    Just got my power back by a strapping group of Canadians who came to help. Also, donations can be made to Tunnel to Towers as well.
