Thinking of The East Coast

I haven’t been doing much the past day or so that hasn’t revolved around watching the news.  Like many of you, my family has several members living in areas slated for high winds and flooding, though luckily they were out of the direct path of Sandy.

There is very little any of us on the opposite side of the country can say or do to alleviate the pain of those who have lost their houses and loved ones, but I still think it’s important that we take a moment to pause and send our best wishes their way.

I hope that all of my readers and fellow bloggers in the east managed to stay safe and dry, and I want to send a huge thank you to all of the emergency workers who are helping those in bad situations.

Our thoughts are with you all as you being the process of cleaning up and rebuilding.

And if you are lucky enough to live in a place relatively free from the impact of natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and fires – today, remember to be thankful.
