It was a lot bigger than any of us had expected. Sadly, the shore (vacation) house we own in Belmar was destroyed. I haven't even had a chance to head down there and with lines for gasoline stretching over a mile (waited 4 hours yesterday for $20 dollars worth of fuel) I think I am gonna be conserving gas for a while. On the home front we moving along. The power was out for about 4 days and the house is a little beat up but it will all come back together soon enough.
Terrible terrible situation all around.
"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens
