In Recovery Mode

Hurricane Sandy delivered a whallop, and what you see on the news is just a snapshot of what's everywhere. Compared to most others, we were fortunate; no power but not for long, and whatever floated away of ours has been found a few blocks away. Helping recovery has kept us busy, and I haven't had time to read blogs or comment. Hope to be able to relax soon, get creative, and perhaps even post something new. For now, here is a new kitty photo -watching us do all the work! Oh, for the life of a pampered kitty. I shall resurface, be well and safe everyone.

So good to hear that you are well and safe. Sandy was rough on your part of the country.

Thank heavens!! I was worried about you guys. What a tragedy - I'm sure that those of us who aren't there can have no true concept of what havoc this disaster has brought to the area.

One by one I have been hearing from my blog friends in the northeast. So glad you are OK. I can't imagine the devastation that occurred.

I'm so glad you are safe. I'm sure this is hard to go through, but things can always be replaced, people cannot! Take care.

Hi Barbara,
I'm so happy to see your post and know that you're all right. We came through the storm with minimal difficulty and damage. Our son and his family have just returned to their home as of last night.
I hope to get to Atco this month, maybe you'll be able to get there.

Glad to hear that you are okay. Glad you found your items that floated away. How did your retirement home make out?
My son and his girlfriend, Kelley drove to NJ last weekend with cans of gas for Kelley's brother. They told us the damage was beyond belief. Stay safe.

Your kitty is adorable. A few weeks back we were brought a little female kitty, and then 2 weeks ago I opened the kitchen door and her 2 litter mates came inside. I have now caught 2 of the 3 in a Havaheart trap, and taken them to the vets to be spayed and nuetered. Did I want 5 cats? Not really, but I hated seeing them outside and I was feeding them anyway. Now to catch the mom cat to get her fixed so there will be no more stray kitties in the neighborhood.

Oh, I forgot to mention... during the Hurricane we had heavy rain and wild wind, but never lost our power. Lots of trees and tree limbs came down in the area. Surrounding towns lost power briefly.
The next night 2nd storm blew threw and the winds and rains were worst than what we got from Hurricane Sandy. We are about 10 miles from the ocean.
