Was he affected by Sandy Claire? If he was or not it doesn't matter, prayers are on the way for him.

I'm very concerned for our Bucky Tom here. I know he lives in New Jersey and I hope he and his lovely family are safe and sound, although New Jersey is in really bad shape. Steve's sister lives in Long Island and we have spoken by cell phone with her. They are without power since it began, isolated and cold. I wish we could help them.

Claire, my heart and prayers go out to you and your father. I know what you're going through as I have lost my father, mother, and step-father. I was able to take solace in the belief that we will be together again, one day. I believe that so strongly.

I pray that your father will do well, and that whatever happens, you are blessed with the strength and support to get through it.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Claire, my thoughts are with you all!


The snow stopped here around 26 inches, I was fortunate to keep my power but every single therapist I work with besides 1 other has none. They have been miserable in the cold weather. It actually started to get a bit sunny today but that will bring flooding (maybe ice tonight!) and quite a few people still have their food out in the snow. My water is getting clearer but we are still under a boil water advisory.. (which I can live with). I chose to bathe in semi contaminated water instead of going to work stinky!

I am also anxious to hear from BuckyTom and all the others to know they are safe.

Claire, you and yours are in my thoughts and prayers.

Just got word that our former Pastor and family, who returned to the New York area a few years ago, are safe. Their house is fine; however the roads are in rough shape and they have been without power for several days.

My heart aches for all those who have been affected by Sandy in one way or another. We complain about the weather here, but don't have the same worries as many.

Okay, maybe the odd earthquake or tsunami! But we were safe this time!

... yes, my prayers go out to those in the northeast. Hope all is well there. Today or tomorrow I'll call my family and find the latest. It would help if I'd get a bill for my surgery. It looks to be $22,000 and my insurance is balking at paying. My family doesn't want me to come down yet. I am the last resort, thank heaven.

Praying that your insurance will pick up the bill. That is why you buy insurance. I hope they at least pick up the bulk of it.
