I am sitting here on November 2 gratefully having my coffee in my own living room with electricity, after living without electric for 2 1/2 days. I am one of the lucky ones for sure. My daughter and her family are still asleep in my apartment. They have no power and live in NJ and had to come stay with us on Long Island. It is great having everyone and it’s times like these we have to all stick together. We are still the fortunate ones, we are all OK. Our other daughter has no power either but she is OK — all OK. Our whole family is OK. Faring the best we can but OK. When I looked at my blog from last year I saw that I started writing about Thanksgiving on November 2. It’s still early and my hope is that many people all over affected by Sandy will be a lot better off very soon. Thanksgiving will bring us all together. I will start to post and re post recipes for Thanksgiving and hopefully everyone will have their power back soon and start cooking again and start healing from this experience.
