Hey everyone, I have been somewhat absent this week, and as most of you have seen on the news, things have been pretty crazy on the east coast this week. There has been utter chaos everywhere, with uprooted trees, mass transit underwater, families without homes, and so much devastation, that it hurts to even think about. It’s been a devastating week, especially seeing the destruction of places that I have grown to love throughout my life. Most of the Jersey shore is destroyed, a lot of homes completely gone and people left shocked and shaken up. It all makes me very sad. I have been glued to the news, and I have been keeping in touch with all of my friends and family making sure that everyone is okay.
I want to thank everyone for your tweets, emails, and messages asking how I am holding up, it’s truly appreciated. My family and friends are all safe, some without power, but still trying to make the best of what they have right now. I know a lot of NJ is either under water or still out of power, and my thoughts are definitely with those individuals. There are so many people helping out throughout the area, and so many people who have been saving lives this week, those people are true heroes in my eyes. Langone Medical Center in NY had their generators fail the night of the storm, and there were nurses who had to carry out newborns and bag air into their lungs. Stories like this shake me to the core and show me how amazing and selfless people are.Also, I am not sure if you guys saw some of the photos from the aftermath of the storm but this site has some crazy photos you need to see.
Today was the first day I actually drove around to see some of the damage done in my area, and everything seems so eerie and glum at the moment. The sky is dark, and the weather is brisk and cold. People are frustrated, hoping for power, and some kind of normalcy at this point. I hope everyone is doing okay out there. What a horrible way to end October right? It’s a good thing tomorrow is the first of November. Hopefully this will all seem like a bad dream in a few weeks. Stay safe friends. xo
