|I think we've all been devastated by what Hurricane Sandy has done to the east coast. My mother grew up in Brooklyn, so I've always loved New York City and admired New Yorkers' fortitude to handle whatever life throws at them. I'm especially in awe this week. As so many said, the scenes resembled a Batman movie.|
Along with having all the cable stations on almost all night, I was constantly monitoring my twitter feed (twitter is often ahead of newscasts) and here are some photos that were tweeted and retweeted over and over again. They're from both NYC and New Jersey and most need no captions.

|This is the same recorder when Sandy hit the New Jersey beach, hard enough to rock the planet.|

To paraphrase President John F. Kennedy, today we are all New Yorkers. Sweetie's and my thoughts and prayers continue to be with everyone affected in all the states affected by Hurricane Sandy.
