Haunting image from Hurricane Sandy
Where my family and I live now, Sandy was not much but a really windy storm and an intense night of TV. But watching the aftermath has been an emotional roller coaster going between the normality of central Brooklyn and news of the world unaffected by the storm to constant emails and Facebook invites about recovery drives and calls for food and supplies for those families whose homes were devasted. Some of those are friends and friends of friends. Banks are running out of cash and gas lines extend for blocks and hours. It’s getting intense. This picture from the nytimes really speaks to the whole thing.
