  •  Well, you're better than I am :) (6+ / 0-)

    During and after Hurricane Sandy, I kept reminding myself that we were lucky because we didn't suffer anywhere near the kind of destruction that NJ and other parts of NY did. We were 8+ days without heat and light and the yard looked like a battlefield of branches, but nothing was damaged.

    Knowing other people had it so much worse didn't stop me from whinging and whining about the cold and the dark! (The cats weren't particularly happy, either. Their "room-temperature" canned food was too cold!)

    Now you know. In the immortal words of Senor Ricardo, I'm a very bah person :)

      I'm not better....I"m just trying really, really hard not to turn into the person whose ass I would want to kick!! lol

      After Sandy.....during Sandy.....all of you folks had every right to be scared and tired and pissed off.  I don't blame you a bit.

      Stoicism is wonderful, but as my mum used to say, "Like fish and company, some things just stink after the third day."

      As usual....she was right.

      We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.
