Sandy Has Broken Our Hearts

Photobucket

Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc in New Jersey. I took these photos today in Nutley, New Jersey, where a tree came down on a house. From what I understand the homeowners were not hurt. Of course they cannot live in the house until the tree is removed.

Here are some heartbreaking videos about Sandy:

 


And there’s supposed to be a Nor’easter coming this week. 

I just seriously want to cry. 

Here are some articles about the tragedy:

  1. I think all of us in Jersey and NY and probably in many other places across the USA have cried, looking at the aftermath of Sandy.
    We were lucky -- just some roofing and gutters gone -- but the widespread flooding, the trees down, the wires down, the gas shortages, and most especially the homes and businesses ruined ... and the lives damaged or lost -- it really is unimaginable. So let's all give ourselves permission to have a good cry ... and get on with the cleanup and rebuilding. Red Cross, Salvation Army, and many religious organizations can all use funds. And there are ways to give time, too -- NJ has a hotline for volunteer opportunities.

    Keep praying, and giving.

    1. Thanks for replying! Yes, I agree that we should do all we can to help those who are hurting. I can't afford to donate money, but I'll volunteer my time or something.

  2. My prayers are with all the people who sustained injury or damage from Sandy. I don't think too many people believed that it would be as bad as it was.

    1. I was worried on Sunday when I saw how powerful the waves already were. This is definitely the worst thing to hit the shore, ever.

  4. Yes, it is just heartbreaking! Luckily we are ok - still without power but we are fine. My heart goes out to all those people who lost everything. This was one monster of a storm.

    1. We lost our power from Monday to Friday. We also lost all the food in the fridge, but other than that we're all right. I hope you get your power back soon.

  9. Sandy certainly reeked havoc on your area and my thoughts and prayers have been with all of you. My daughter lives just out of New York City and her home had a huge oak tree come crashing through. No one was hurt, thank God.

  11. Such devastation, I hope you and your loved ones are safe! I lived in Ortley Beach and then Seaside Park years ago. Both of my old homes are now gone. It's just heart wrenching. Stay strong!

  12. Thanks for stopping by, I pray for all of us who where effected by this storm. It is going to take so much to rebuild and restore the damaged areas. Like the Shores of Jersey, my home in Rockaways, NY and all along the coast line has been devastated. We have lost so much, yet I will restore even better than before.
