I heard Brooklyn was dark, but my daughter never lost her electricity. She lost Internet, home phone, and TV when a tree fell on the lines. She can still use her cell phone. About three months ago I got 200 minutes of texting plan each month for $5, I just texted her since she wanted to save her cell battery in case she lost electricity. She only has a car charger and did not want to have to leave the house.
She had NO flooding! I am amazed.
The fire that burned 100 homes now leaves me with a new fear--overburdened fire department that might not respond in time in her neighborhood. You know how it is to be a mother.
I hope the people you all worried about being hurt or affected by Sandy fared as well as my daughter.
The post about Lucy and Ethel has been eaten by Blogger three times! I have to start over.
How did you, your family and friends fare during Sandy? Got snow?
