    Hurricane Sandy and Long Island

    DH works with FEMA and is down in Hauppaughe, Long Island. He left here a week ago when the temps. were warm but now he's freezing down there with no way to get a warm coat. By the time he gets off work, 12 hour days, he's exhausted. Hopefully he will get a day off soon and can hit a WalMart or Goodwill. Last night it took them 5 hours to travel 30 miles in the now.

    God bless those who help, whether paid or not! It takes a lot of caring to do what your husband is doing!

    Last night when I heard the news report of the snow they were getting on Long Island I got very stressed. So many people are literally homeless or staying in homes with no electric or utilities. So many lost everything. And all the rescue people who came from all over the country. So many aren't even used to snow at all. They went after the storm hit and didn't expect that amount of snow or the low temps. I guess what I am saying is if you can do anything to help then do it. If you can't and you believe in God then please pray for all who are effected by Sandy and now this early snow accumulation. Thank you.

    I am praying for your husband and the rest of the amazing volunteers that are in NY & NJ helping the victims. I have a sister that lives in Hoboken, NJ so I know first hand about the devastation the people there are facing. My sister is fortunate because where she lives wasn't affected as bad as many of the other areas. Please thank your husband for the service that he is generously giving.

    The good news is that it's supposed to warm up a little tomorrow. Tell your husband that we are all very grateful for FEMA here in NY. Their hard work has not gone unnoticed. I'm in Brooklyn, and FEMA was at my house yesterday.

    Let us know if he's able to get a coat and stay warm. Linynp, bless you for helping. Our church has a team of first responders who go to distressed areas, and they are there helping. FEMA gets a bad rap, but that's what makes the news. It would be nice if the reporters would find someone who was helped and put that on the news. Also, how about the FEMA workers point of view? That has to be one tough job.
