Hurricane Sandy

Boy it was cold when I got up this morning. So I turned up the thermostat and the furnace came on and in a few minutes heat started coming up through the registers and pretty soon I was warm and toasty. What to do next: plug in the toast...
er and make some toast to slather with peanut butter and turn on the Keurig and brew up a steaming cup of French roast. Then I opened the back door to retrieve the newspaper; Brrr, damn its cold and damp out there.
Now that my belly is full, and my heart is warm and I am feeling fine I revive my sleeping lap top and check my emails and check in at FB to see if and what my FB friends are up to.

How was your morning?

Friends of ours have a son who is a NYS trooper and he was sent to the NY metro area to assist with their recovery. He's being housed at the State University of Stonybrook's student housing: NO HEAT, NO FOOD , NO ELECTRICITY,NO GASOLINE (have to scrounge for their own food.) FEMA not there yet. The people there are destitute, have nowhere to go. His statement to his mom; I can come home, they are home.
Donate to the Red Cross or The Salvation Army!
