    HI friends ... I haven't read through this whole post as I'm exhausted. My neighborhood is a war zone. There is looting, gas leaks, and my old apt complex has been condemned and is evacuating as I type this. I had to show my ID just to get to my house to pick up a few supplies before returning to Gramma's house. I'm sick to my stomach at how this feels to see the town(s) I love and grew up in just decimated. My house is ok but no power so IDK when we will return.

    Today, we filled my truck with supplies - blankets, towels, baby clothes, diapers, formula, water, adult clothes, dog food, cat food, toiletries - everything we could find to donate to the shelters today. So many people displaced, it's heartbreaking.

    So ultimately, we are ok. I'm just so heartbroken for everyone that isn't ok. <3

    I'm so sorry for all of you who are suffering with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Just watching the news and hearing about all the tragedy and the destruction, and the lives lost...makes me feel so sad and helpless that I cannot do anything to help. I just wanted to let you all know that so many of us in So Cal are thinking of you and have you in our hearts and minds right now.

    Also ... @AdventuresWithOliver is safe and sound ... her house was not so lucky. She lives up the street from me. We've been in touch so I know she's okay but devastated at her loss. I'll let her share what details she wants.

    Checking in - no internet. But we never lost power, until this morning but only briefly. It's very sad here - now we're in the midst of a gasoline shortage (due to lack of power, not lack of gas). Lines have seen 2 miles long in length and gas is being rationed (i've heard $5 limits and 10 gallong limits). My offices in NY have been closed due to no power, and our NJ office will be open tomorrow. So many people are my team are happy beccause they have no power and have been dealing with extra long lines at Starbucks, Wendys, Dunkin Donuts, etc for access to internet. Many of the grocery stores are empty as well.

    Many trees are down all over - and my street is finally open. The trees that didnt fall down during last Octobers snow storm fell down this time.

    I had to take Herman to the vet yesterday - oddly enough he had power when the houses around the corner from him dont.

    Everything is so sporadic.

    Herman loved the wind and going out in the storm, so he was pretty much calm - until he heard trees falling and wires ripping off our house. I was scared at that point too!!!!

    @elearn, do be careful. I keep hearing stories about people getting electrocuted there w/the down power lines. I can't believe all that has happened in NJ, it seems like your state got the worst of it. Take care and give Herman a big kiss from Tate and Finn.

    If there is anything that I can do to help, please let me know. I don't have much but you are all welcome to what I have. I also have an extra bedroom in the house if someone needs somewhere to stay.

    For me, her name was Abby

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.

    It hard to even imagine how it feels to see your home devastated by nature itself.
    We don't have anything even close to like that in here. It seems like we have almost miserable weather all year around and no major storms and you who have good weather most of the year get these horrible extremes in change. My hopes and prayers are with you all.
