My childhood memories...all gone.
Millions of people without power, without homes, over 40 dead.
Hurricane Sandy wiped entire towns off the map in the NY/NJ area. I grew up in Manahawkin, NJ and lived there as an adult. My old home is gone.
It has been a week and we still have people without power. The gas crisis incredible - we have a gas ration in my part of the state.
My heart goes out to those who lost everything. We were lucky and only lost power for about 4 days and suffered no flooding or damage.
To get a sense of normalcy my local NADAC club hosted their November trial this weekend, on schedule. I was debating on going and using the gas but I went for it. I am glad I did. We are a close knit community and it was fun to get the dogs out to run around. CC finished her tunnelers, weavers and jumpers titles too! Iggy Pop finished his weavers title and got another Q towards his superior novice tunnelers title.
