Just letting everyone know that we are okay, minor damage but many of our friends and neighbors were not so lucky. We lost power for many days and just got it back on but that was nothing compared to the destruction only a few streets over from me.
I am trying to get as many orders out as possible and am doing my best to reply to the over 400 emails I have ahead of me; I will do my best to get back to you if you have contacted me. Also, if anyone has called, our phones were out as well so please try again with hopes you are connected.
There are many towns around me that still do not have power, internet or anything. Street lights are out and gas is being rationed.
Our town post office has just reopened but the wait is very long as residents are trying to retrieve mail from a home that may no longer be standing. I have attached a link below which are images from my town of Keyport. I live only a stones through from many of these images and am thankful and blessed that my family and I are okay with minor damages.
Again, I am doing my best to catch up. I hope everyone can understand and I do aplogize for the delay in getting the orders out and answering emails; I can't type and make teas so I am trying to get as much done as I can in a day :)
Here is the link, it is titled "After Hurricane Sandy Keyport, NJ" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJ-JV4HbjIQ&sns=fb
There is a pending Nor'easter storm headed our way for tomorrow (wed) and Thursday, they are calling for high winds, flooding and possible snow. If I lose power again, my apologies in advance and please know, I will again do my best to catch up.
Blessings to everyone during this time and please say a few extra prayers for those that lost a lot more then power . . .
For my fellow New Jerseyians . . . "we are Jersey Shore strong"!!!!!
