Hurricane Sandy A.K.A. Frankenstorm 10.29.12

First of all I want to Thank all of you from the bottom of my heart, for all the tweets, emails, texts. messages and prayers. Especially when I was freaking out because I didn't know where Husband was.
You girls are the best and I love you all!

Before Sandy's Arrival:

Empty shelves at the supermarkets
Monday morning - empty street
Cloudy & windy - The calm before the storm
Storefront - ready for Sandy
Ghost Town
Our windows covered up just in case.
Manhattan and munchkin huddling together

 Aftermath of Sandy

Outside the Museum of Natural History





It's been a rough few days for us East Coasters and I'm really hoping this doesn't become a yearly thing.
Last year on this exact date we were hit with a snowstorm and this year we were hit with Hurricane Sandy. We've been preparing for it all weekend, even though Sandy was supposed to arrive Monday night.
Mass Transportation was to shut down, starting with trains at 7pm and buses at 9pm. Businesses closed early so the workers could get home safely and before the MTA stopped working. All public schools were closed and we were instructed to stay inside where it was safe. First came the rain and soon after came the howling wind, never before have I ever seen my windows rattle the way that they did all Monday morning and night, or feel the building shake the way that it did. I really thought that it would go down any minute. We had to tape our windows and cover them with plastic garbage bags just in case.
I was finally able to fall asleep Tuesday morning at around 3am when the windows stopped rattling.
All schools were closed today Tuesday and will be closed tomorrow Wednesday.

My family and I are all safe, thank God! But now we pray for all of those who have lost family members during Sandy. For those who have lost their homes or businesses and are still without power.
We pray that NYC recovers fast!

Love,
Kary xoxo
