Been trying to see how a friend got on in Tom's River. They got hit pretty hard. It'll be a while before they get their sevices back, I'm thinking.

Glad you guys got throught it.

Some events there were unexpected.

(From a blog discussing fake photos regarding the hurricane - some New Yorkers still have a sense of humor.)

The lady hiding like that is hilarious... someones got real talent there.

On a more serious note, I was looking through the NYtimes readers pics and the scene in NY/NJ states looks one of utter devastation.. right out of a movie. Its amazing that there the number of fatalities has been low considering the damage that's occurred. One pic really stands out and thats a pic of someone sitting on a fence on the embankment somewhere in NYC and watching this big waves come in over the wall and hes just sitting there ....absolutely nutter but a fab pic.

Hi everyone,

Thank you so much for the best wishes, I'm fine now, just some damage on my garage roof and I received power last Saturday, just in time because temperatures came down that day.

We still have problems with the trains going to and coming from Penn Station and the big lines for gasoline are insane... people are killing each other for it.

I spoke yesterday with my insurance agent and he said in Long Island are reported 500.000 vehicles destroyed for the storm and this is only with State Farm.

The last snow storm created some problems also, a very wet snow bring down so many tress, provably more than Sandy.

I'm thankful we don't have so much damage if you compare wit other people they lost everything.

Weather is changing dramatically and we need to be prepared for it.

Have a great weekend everybody.

Marcelo

Good to hear from you Marcello, noticed you haven't been around for a while. Heard from a friend the other day from Tom's River Area and he made it through with just some water damage and power loss as well.

Glad you're OK

Thank you Ken,
There is so much damage and looks like it is taking so long for LIPA to bring power to all the people in Long Island, something funny is that I'm the only one in my block with electricity

Thank you Steven,

Gasoline still a problem here and electricity, I'm looking for a generator but it is sold out in all the Home Depot's and Lowells... I want to be prepared just in case.

Have a great weekend.
