Good Morning Everyone!!!! Working from home today which is a better way to start the week.

We moved into our new home Friday a week ago just before Sandy hit. We are well inland now and we only lost power for about 4 hours. Our old house is only 4 miles from the Atlantic and had many big trees that could fall. I think we may have moved just in time.

The destruction on the barrier islands north of Atlantic City is truly devistating and heartbreaking. It will be years before they will once again be a vacation destination.

It is very personal to me as my sister and her husband have a business in Seaside Heights (yes Snookieland! ) and as far as they can tell they have been wiped out. No one is allowed on the island and it may be next fall before full utilities are restored even. They live in Toms River and only regained power yesterday. As a result we had to take in my 97 year old mother until power was restored.

We need this upcoming cruise badly ! Made the final transportation arrangement yesterday, reserved a shared ride van to and from Philly airport.

All thats left is pack and go!

Won't be long!!!
