Surviving Hurricane Sandy & Nor’Easter Athena

It’s probably pretty morbid to talk about a pair of natural disasters as your first post in your new blog, some people introduce themselves…

But seeing as most of the people whom are going to read (or not read) this already know me, so why bother blathering on for an eternity about myself?

I went 11 days without power, internet, telephone and cable television. My close friend was displaced from her home, and she won’t be returning upwards to eight months. Thankfully her home is fine, however her town is absolutely destroyed.

The town I spent summers in. Hanging out on the boardwalk, spending countless amounts of money on Dance Dance Revolution, funnel cake and running into the ocean far enough til it was strong enough to knock me on my face. I would scramble to my feet just before the next wave hit, the saltwater stinging my eyes.

Seaside Heights will rebuild, but I’m sure it won’t be as I remember it.

Cherry Blossom weighed down enough by snow it was leaning into the pool. Eek!
