Survived Sandy


Super storm Sandy sizzled through my neighborhood blazing a trail of terror, couple of days ahead of trick or treating. We find ourselves lucky to escape unharmed and survive the shade of nature that was offered in the form of Sandy.  Fallen trees all around but we are lucky to have power on. The closest succumbed tree is just a house away we only had couple of fallen branches. Another tree in front yard squeaked through the wind but luckily didn’t snap. While we may have been lucky this time, others in my city are not. Downtown Manhattan is hard hit and so are the coastal regions of the Island. It’s a resilient and spirited city & will bounce back as it has done in the past. Meanwhile schools are closed and kids are home. Unplanned vacation is the silver lining and kids have plans to capitalize on it fully, Parents of course have other chores in mind, eying mess in the yard. Dad is flexible (may be practical) but the other is half is adamant. We have two boys and their combined tantrum strength can match the fury of Sandy, the storm is already brewing, let’s see if it gets strong enough to shake motherly mind.

  1. I’m so happy to hear you made it through without harm, Yatin. Over here on the west coast we only see the terrifying pictures. We could never understand how bad it really was. Hugs to you, my friend. I hope your children don’t test your patience too much!

      We faced the worst winds of the storm, we are bit inland & so were not impacted by the surge & tide. Children helped out a bit in yard & in return got what they wanted :).

  2. Glad to know that you and your family are safe. Good luck to everyone who is going to bear the brunt of this massive storm.

      In other words you can say it took a major disaster for me to get back to blog. 🙂 We did escape unharmed, no physical scars, but the mental scars will take time to heal.

  6. Sending a lot many greetings and best wishes across to you and everyone affected!!

    Take care !

  7. btw….the kahan itne din????? I have just begun to hate you for the absence from the blogosphere!

    Happy to hear you and your family are safe! I’m not sure why Halloween is the time for massive storms the past two years. We had over a foot of snow here in CT last year and massive power outages. Weirdness of weather.

    “We have two boys and their combined tantrum strength can match the fury of Sandy…” LOL. It’s that tough, huh. 🙂

  12. Sharmishtha says:

  13. Glad you guys were fine. I lost light for 21/2 days, I thought I was going to die from the cold I can only imagine the people who lost their home or car.
