Day One: I’m thankful that we had no damage from Hurricane Sandy; that all of my friends and family were kept safe.
Other than that, we did lose a cat. I caught a glimpse of Athena running past me while I was outside checking things out on Monday. She was certainly scared, probably cold and wet. I spent 45 minutes wandering around in the hurricane looking for her with no luck. I’ve placed food and milk outside for her, hoping that she’d come back, but I haven’t seen her. Every day, several times a day since, we’ve been looking. My other cat, Apollo, has been moping around the house looking for his sister, while my heart breaks a little more.
I pray for all of those impacted by the destruction – not just at the Jersey Shore – all along the east coast.
The photos are unbelievable. It’s hard to imagine all those places that hold fond memories actually look like this now and that so many people are homeless.
