Sandy Update

I sincerely hope everyone is ok after hurricane Sandy’s visit to the east coast.

My family and I are safe, and our home is intact. However we are without power so I’m posting this from an iPad on battery power and may not post again for a day or two – depends on when I have juice again. Meantime some of the other MetsToday authors may or may not be posting.

Time to hunker down. Be safe!

    Glad to hear that you and your family are safe.
    No storm problems here in the Low Country.
    Hope that all the contributors to Mets Today who live in the storm path are safe and sound.

    Now that Hurricane Sandy has left town, maybe another Sandy should as well. He came in like a hurricane promising great things, but so far, it’s been a bit disappointing. Maybe he’s like Obama, inherited such a mess that he’ll need 8 years to work it out. Which brings us to a WS championship in 2018. “in the year 2525, if man is still alive, if woman can survive they may find…” a Mets championship.

    I live a few blocks from the beach at the Jersey shore. No power, no tv, no heat, no cold beer. Reading Mets Today on my phone is one my last pleasures I have. Thanks Joe!:

      OMG, where at the Shore are you? Glad you are safe. Hang in there, hope you and your family are OK. My sister is stuck at the EOC on Long Beach Island (she’s part of Emergency Mangement in Beach Haven) and it’s pretty hairy down there.

    I am in Monmouth County. Couple towns south of us is disaster, couple towns north same thing. We were lucky. The ocean came about a foot from my foundation. We have a generator now so we have a fridge and tv but no heat. Another week until I can get back to work (which would seem like a vacation from the work I have been doing here). All in all, my family is healthy and housed and thanking God for it. But being in the center of an epic hurricane was life shaking. Though I still think I am having a better off season then the Mets.
