New Jersey Needs You!

Please send our beloved, ruined state, your prayers, love & positive vibes - we desperately need it, especially our devastated coastal communities and I would be so grateful to y'all! NJ needs all the help we can get.

I can't share my Nikon photos with you until we get power back, and, these from my Blackberry only give a hint of the local devastation. It's unlike anything I've ever seen first hand before. And I hope I never see this again. I'm stunned and utterly heartbroken. So grateful we fared well compared with Irene last August, in tears over so so many who've literally lost Everything & are now homeless.

Hubbs is already taking applications for vacant apartments and once the power is on, we can send those through & see who management can approve. And we've already got a waiting list in case we get any more vacancies. The tenants who have left the complex to stay with family and friends (who have gas stoves and/or fireplaces) along with us have been each other out - those of us with generators have been making pots of coffee and hot water for those without generators, charging cell phones and so on.

We are bone weary exhausted but all things considered, Very Lucky. I'm am overwhelmed.
