I Heart NY

Hurricane Sandy roared through the East Coast yesterday, humbling all of us. These images are truly remarkable and shocking.

We lucked out and didn't lose power, but since we are on a high floor, the wind was really scary last night. Our windows were literally caving in and shaking as the storm howled outside. Needless to say, we stayed away from the windows until the height of the storm died down after midnight. Woke up today to a desolate NY, and saw some crazy photos on the news and via the internet. Lots of love to those who are suffering, and a huge thanks to all those helping with the aftermath.

My brother and sister-in-law lost power in their apartment, so packed up and came over for some tlc. They had too much stuff to walk, and couldn't find a cab, so a kind New Yorker gave them a ride (along with their two suitcases!) Isn't that so nice? This kind of crisis really brings out the best in New Yorkers.
