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.

Seeeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

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'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!

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.

Please add my thoughts and prayers to the list. My heart goes out to everyone on the east coast who may be affected or know of people who are.

From all I have seen and heard, this storm has affected people as far inland as Wisconsin. Our prayers go out to all who found themselves in the path of it. Thankfully, we had only moderate wind and rain from it here.

Best wishes and prayers to those effected by Sandy. Maybe a good time to go to the Red Cross website and make a donation if you are able.

I just watched the news for the first time tonight. Didn't realise things were this bad. Hope everyone is ok and I'll be praying for all of you. Please be careful and keep us posted guys.

Got a call that my father is in rough shape. One of those things where he could live 'til tomorrow, could live for two years. Send thoughts his way.
