I live in northern NJ. Our area is a small portion of NJ that did not experience the catastrophic results from Sandy. We did lose power from fierce winds and heavy rain. This morning I was blessed to have the lights come on in our (very) small area.
Many roads around here (and just about everywhere in NJ) are still closed, and most stores have not opened. Even the few grocery stores that are open cannot sell meat or dairy. But at least they are open. The few gas stations that are open around here have cars waiting lined up taking one lane on the highway - for blocks.
Most of NJ is still without power, including many of my good friends.
Watching the destruction on the news is sad, especially when it's where you live.
Thanks for posting this.
