Well, it's been one hell of a few weeks. Thanks to common sense, ideas/advice from the good folks here and the Good Lord's grace we made it through relatively unscathed. Lost power for 5-6 days, but had food from the fridge/freezer divvied up in coolers and basically had get-togethers with the neighborhood every night as we ate our way through it. Oh and drank our way as well, as I lost track of the bottles/cases of wine consumed.
It is just heartbreaking to see the devastation at the Shore, though. I just live, oh, 4 miles as the crow flies from the ocean and so much is just, well, gone.
