The Aftermath of Sandy

30 Oct

So this post is a hybrid-post of sorts. Originally this post was to upload from my phone, but my connection to the interwebs was so spotty, that it did not happen.

We survived the beast known as Hurricane Sandy. And a beast she was! We lost power around 7:00 P.M. But that was the worst of it for us. But luckily, only for 27 hours. Our power just came back on. Many others fared worse… catastrophic devastation. People died, people lost their homes entirely (either it burnt down or floated away, not even kidding), hospitals had to evacuate patients, and parts of my city are underwater. No one knows when everything will be back to “normal.” Currently the estimate is another week. 😦
My Halloween run isn’t happening at this point. The NYC marathon in Sunday. Who knows if it will happen. I’m supposed to work the expo. Doubtful now.  Our cats were unfazed by Hurricane Sandy overall. We filled the tub with water just in case, and one of our cats fell in and jumped out. Oops… but again, so grateful, so thankful, so blessed that the worst of it for us was honestly nothing.

Tons of leaves for us…luckily

Driving around and assessing the damage.

This was no where near “bad” as other parts

I am anxious to get back on my fitness grind. We had a hard time with food and whatnot, so I pretty much ate a lot of takeout since our fridge was out of commission.  Now that we have power, I am going to off to the gym soon and at least going for runs in the neighborhood. With due caution of course… there is a lot of down lines and trees still. Anyway, enough of my rambles. For those who are really devastated – lost loved ones, lost their homes, I’m sorry for your loss. And to the first responders who continue to work around the clock, thank you. And LIPA (a.k.a. Long Island Power Authority), I love you so hard right now.
