    My thought and prayers are with everyone in the affected areas. I have lots of family members in NJ, Long Island, and PA.

    I live just north of Baltimore MD. We lost power for about 24 hours and were very blessed to get it back so soon. My prayers and thoughts to everyone who was affected by Sandy.

    I live in the Village of Mastic Beach on Long Island's south shore. Fortunately, my home is about a thousand feet north of the bogs and Great South Bay - I did not suffer any major damage, but hundreds of neighbors just south of me have been completely devastated. The storm surge brought the ocean rushing up the road, passing my property. It only seeped onto my lawn a few feet feet and my power was out for nearly 24 hours. A quarter mile away, people have lost EVERYTHING. Homes were swept off their foundations - people did not get out in time and those stories end the worst possible way. It's taken all this time for the waters to recede enough to be able to walk along the shore. I'm going to try to bicycle around my neighborhood to check on my friends. We appreciate all your thoughts and prayers.

    [QUOTE=NJ Quilter;5627407]And, sorry for the personal rant, but when you are told by the powers that be to evacuate - DO IT! When you don't, you're putting my DH's life on the line. And many other first responders. Please don't make me a widow unnecessarily. Your stuff is STUFF! I'd be sad to lose things as well. I get it when something freakish happens that could not be foreseen. In this case - not so for many, many people. OK - rant over.

    I so agree with you. It's inconsiderate, uncaring, rude and irresponsible not to think about the first responders' lives.

    NJ Quilter, thank you for truer words. One person's decision to stay put does affect others. Stay safe, all.

    I prayed for them to be safe and I think when we do hear from other QB members that were in the storms path we could help in some way.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    My NJ friend few to LA days before the storm to help family --now her house may be destroyed --I could only help
    by getting her some email/phone information. I'm in Fl but she was to be here in Dec.
    Naturally, she didn't take a lot of info with her since she was flying away for 2 weeks. She had extensive work done
    on her house all summer and just finished last month. Her home not an extra summer place.
    Can't find the condition of her house because no one can get there yet. Hope all those people with destroyed homes had insurance.

    I heard they need warm clothing and perhaps a good coverlet. Maybe this could get organized so someone could get it shipped to them.

    Jesus knows all my imperfections yet he still loves me. Amazing!
