Rock You Like a Hurricane…

Posted on the 03 November 2012 by Maggyruth @maggyruth

Too soon?


Sandy is the second hurricane that has hit New Jersey since I moved here not quite 2 1/2 years ago. Last year Irene made a mess of things for a few days in our area, but things bounced back relatively quickly. This time, it’s taking a bit longer, and it looks like the damage will greatly exceed whatever Irene managed to do.

The Boy and I were very lucky in that we only had minor flickers of power outages during the storm. Our main household issue was a lack of heat, but that was due to other issues that need to be addressed and was set aside immediately post-storm so that we weren’t infringing on other immediate needs in our complex.

Classes at school were cancelled for the week as the town had water integrity issues as well as power issues on 3 of the 5 campuses. The Boy’s office has been closed for the entire week. We spent the early part of the week having a Harry Potter marathon, and have since been getting out here and there as well as watching various television series. And I’ve been knitting…and knitting and knitting.

Whatever my feelings about our current governor, I have to say that he does a pretty good job in these kinds of situations. There have been crews from all over the country rolling in to assist with power issues, and things are being addressed in a pretty organized manner. Granted, as I stated before, the Boy and I were minimally impacted by any issues, but one of my dear S’s (I have many) was sans power for 4 days, and she’s in relatively good spirits about the whole thing.

There is still a lot more work to be done for recovery, and I do believe it will happen. I’m hoping that the other areas affected that we aren’t hearing about as much are receiving assistance as well.
P.S…I still prefer blizzards…
