Our dear friend Sandy departed yesterday leaving us without internet service all day. Our lights flickered for a second Monday evening but we never lost power. We have some small branches down and some plant debris all over the pool cover but that’s the extent of the hurt felt here in Mt. Penn. I’ll head up to the Fleetwood house after lunch and I expect a lot of tree damage there.
We made every preparation we could save buying a generator and that’s on the list for the future. Luckily Berks was close enough to the eye that we missed the devastating rain and winds. I spent my early years outside New York City in North Jersey and feel for those whom the storm devastated. The damage on the news is sickening. The only positive from all of this are the jobs created for the clean up and rebuilding.
Remember, Mitt Romney said he’d privatize FEMA. If you vote Republican please go out and repair your own roads, bridges, electrical grid and public works.
