While we’re still expecting the extensive rain front hurricane Sandy is dragging in its wake, we’ve been very lucky and escaped the storm unscathed. I’m extremely aware, however, of the many, many people who haven’t been so lucky. Who’re stranded without power, who’ve lost their homes, or worse, a loved one. First responders have been (and still are) absolutely amazing, but they can’t do it alone, especially since this is an ongoing effort. It will take time. And money.
