Super Storm Sandy leaves it's mark on my town

These pics were taken 4 weeks after the storm.
This is the lobby of my building.

Entire first floor apartment - had to be gutted

Collected piles of debris line the streets, both sides.

Porta Potties are still set up on the streets.

Where there used to be cars parked on the street and in the meridian by the shops are now all these disaster recovery trailers and trucks.

This truck and that hose is attached to my building, still sucking out the moisture and mold after 4 weeks.



This sand used to be the street. The sand should be way back to where the board walk is. 
Again this is 4 weeks after the storm and they still have all this sand to relocate.


We saw cars that were covered up to the roof in sand and seaweed.
And we still saw lots of signs for where people could get free food and water.
I sure hope 4 weeks from now there is some significant improvement.
At least we now have power.

Thanksgiving 2012

We went to John's daughter Jennifer's home for Thanksgiving.
This is the wonderful house they moved into recently.
Just such a wonderful place to be. I love the house too.

We took the 2 dogs and stayed over. I think we all had a really great time.

In the past, their dog Lexie and my 2 dogs didn't get along that well, but everyone talked me into bringing them, and they were all right.
I think all 3 dogs have calmed down and everything went well.

Of course they all teased me the whole time about how terrible the dogs were getting along, as I was the only one worried. LOL

Some of the pics in the video were taken by the kids. They love cameras too.

At the end of the short video is a movie clip of Nicholas dancing - it is very cute.
