Hello from Long Island, where a Nor' Easter is about to hit.
The power is flickering on and off, and the tides are supposed to be 5 ft higher than normal, with 60 mph winds.
They have sent the children home from school, after just reopening after Sandy.
Still so many without power, or heat, or phones, and it is SNOWING and sleeting!
No relief for these people who have lost so much and are struggling to survive.
They are given no info and left to wonder if anyone remembers they are there.
Churches are collecting food, cleaning supplies, socks and warm clothing.
There has been a gas shortage since the storm hit a week ago Monday, and at this writing the 6 gas stations here are out of gas.
Lines are hours long.
It is the last draw for those who are trying to get gas for a generator to get some light and heat.
Tempers are flaring and spirits are sagging.
All the hoopla and photo opps with politicians right after the storm is gone.
Tonight ,those who got power back fear they will lose it again! Those without, fear they will be homeless as so many are.
Please remember them in your prayers.
In light of this situation, I won't post a table, but open it up for those who are have prepared one, before my power goes out!
I hope next week I can report things are better. I pray I will.
A little soda bread muffin and some tea in a cute owl mug I found in clearance last Fall at Home Goods.
There's a little owl inside too! :)
Have a good week! I am hoping the lights stay on and the GAS situation improves, there is no reason for it to be the way it is.
