Ug, watching the news all the time, like I do, has made me feel so impotent when it comes to the East Coast right now. I have so many friends and family from Florida to Maine!!! Every one of them has been hit by that b!tch Sandy, and now there’s another storm hitting them!
My partner’s grandma lives in New Jersey, so not as hard hit as Staten Island or Massapequa *prayers are with you*, but her power has been out for over a week. What was the first thing she did? Laundry. Lots of it! She’s a woman after my own heart that’s for sure. No word on if the new storm is expected to knock out power again, though. Sheesh!
In order to do SOMETHING, I decided to take a cue from all of my East Coast friends. It seems like everyone was getting batteries, water, and cocktail fixings for the storms. So, BusyBeeBlogger.com is following suit and throwing a cocktail party to raise money for those hit by these storms. Tentative date is December 7 and all are invited to come!!!
I will keep you posted.
