Sandy knocked my power out for a day, internet for another day.
and i was kinda pissed,
I just now found out i got off easy.
I have family in seaside , toms river , brick town, and shore acres NJ.
I also have family in Flat bush, Manhattan and upstate NY
My 87 year old uncle survived, his house flooded and floated away.
He survived by hunkering down in a 30 year old tree house.
HE is the only family so far to contact anybody
the rest of the family in those area's are, unreachable.
So i am gone. i am off to fetch my uncle, and any other family i can find.
I don't need luck, but a few prayers would not hurt.
we are talking about 11 people that nobody can contact.
reports have come in of flooding, that has totally wiped out the neighborhoods.
( in shore acres NJ ) and 6 are dead.
I have a 12 hour trip to get there, I will find my family and bring them
<< crossed fingers >> and god willing.
