    Just heard Honchey's Governor on TV .... the devastation is unprecedented; worse than he ever could imagine possible when he went out to see it; devastation 2 x's worse than Hurricane Irene; Irene 1.2 million homes, this time double; 8 days to get power restored and back to some semblance of order; we have a lot of work to do (understatement of the year, for sure!)

    Oh Honchey ... my ♥ goes out to you. I am so sad for you.

    I saw reports from Pleasant Beach NJ which Honchey mentioned being 10 miles from her and she said if that was breached, they would have flooding. It was breached! There are no more dunes between the ocean and town. The three lakes in town have become one. He showed parking meters with only about 18 inches showing above the sand. No sign of the street. The area is without power. We might not hear from Honchey for a few days. Pray the trees around her will do no damage to her home or property.

    Good memory, GGal ... and how many were like me and grabbed their map books to check in on "where"!

    Also checked on JanRN's location... just realized we are due north/south! hhmmmmm? If that Lake was not in the way, we'd be MUCH closer. Though, if we both headed to Niagara Falls ..................

    Ladies ... I'm almost gone!
    See you in a couple of weeks.

    Honchey ... here's hoping life will have come back to a "little" bit of normalcy for you by the time I return. Or perhaps I should say, the new normal. Also, as said by your Governor ... "we have a lot of work to do".

    I happened across this site from another thread this morning and thought you all might find it interesting. The prices are great and the shipping is in line. http://www.marshalldrygoods.com/. You international quilters might find it something you could use.

    Hi everyone, I survived Sandy. I still don't have my pc running yet but as soon as I get it running I will let you know.

    I am typing this for my sister Honchey, my name is Carolyn. Honchey has been out of all electricity since the storm and got it back late today. She had some branches fall but no other problems. We all need to be thankful for what we have.

    I just hung up the phone from talking with my sister Honchey and she is very relieved because she now has POWER. She is going to relax and soak in the tub, I thought you'd like to know that. All of you ladies have a wonderful day. God bless you, Carolyn

    Oh Carolyn, thank you so much! I was so worried. I'm so relieved. Tell her that we have been prayin' hard for her.

    I've been checking several times for news of her. You're a great sister to let us know. Thanks, Carolyn.
