Prayers and/or best wishes needed.

For those who believe in a higher power, a few prayers for our friends, and everyone who may be affected by Hurricane Sandy would be appreciated. For those who don't, feelings of goodwill will also help. For all of us, if there is a way we can support those who need support, we should.

BT, here's hoping that you and your family are safe. And everyone else in the Eastern states, From Maine to Florida, and as far west as Ohio, you are too many for me to mention. But I am praying that all of you are safe.

This is a very caring thread Chief. You're a good person.
Will add it to my prayer list, thank you for the reminder to stop and think about it.

I was just about to post on this subject Chief, and glad to see it's already here thanks to you. I've been watching CNN since I got up this morning and as we all know by now this storm is a whopper!! Prayers on on the way from California........hang tight and stay safe!!
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

I'm also keeping the east coast in my prayers. This is quite the storm. Kind of scary. I've been keeping track of friends through FB and I'm hoping I can continue to do so.

Saying prayers and watching coverage on Fox news. We have relatives in New Jersey, New York, and PA. The relatives in NJ still have power!
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

I have quite a few friends who are in the target areas, and more who are in "freak weather" areas (that is to say, expecting bizarre, if not dangerous weather .... early and high snows, high tides, even though they are way inland). So, yes, our thoughts and prayers are there. There have been storms as bad, but not ones that will hit so many huge population centers.

We are praying for everyone involved.

Has anyone heard from BuckyTom? He works at CBS in New York, and he lives in NJ. I'm sure he is busy tonight.
