I live in Michigan, a pretty fair distance from the East Coast. But the effects of Hurricane Sandy are evident, even at this distance: power outages, downed trees. I see clean-up crews all over the place. And that’s simply nothing compared to the havoc she has wreaked on the coast, especially in New Jersey. The absolute power and size of this storm is incredible.
As I often do in times like this – are you this way, too? – I think of the Ingalls family during the hard winter. No power to lose, and no trees to fall, but still … victims of Mother Nature, complete reliance on only the supplies they’ve stored in their homes, and not for a few days or weeks, but for months. As I do so many times, I wonder how on earth they did it.
Now I’m wondering about those in Sandy’s path. It’s hard to wrap my brain around all of the loss and damage and those who were affected have been in my thoughts and prayers.
