    my before and Sandy almost destroyed the land of my now.

    As a child, I loved hurricanes and experienced many with great excitement. My mama made me do relief work to try and beat down my fervor for dangerous storms.

    I don't love them anymore.

    I sympathize with your mother, five days no power for me, too, yet nothing near the horror others experienced. I hope that one day their lives will be made whole. Slow coming for both.

        from La. were calling here, unable to find their kin after a week. One friend's 4 brothers and 2 SIL's were on a roof and no one managed to find them for days. Also, disgusting was that the storm did not do the damage to NO, the Corp of Engineers and Oil and Gas did that. Just reckless disregard for that beautiful part of the world. Good of you to care.
