As promised, below are post images of New York.  I scoured the web and these images were the ones that stood out.

    I survived Ike in 2008. It came in trough Galveston, TX leaving millions of damage there. By the time it reached us in Houston, an hour later it was not as strong. But it left us with no lights for over a week! We struggled to find ice to keep our food cold, we had to take showers in the dark because we had to save our batteries for the night. Gas stations, convenience stores, groceries stores, everything was closed! I am glad you and your family are ok :)

    So glad you are okay! We are fine, too. Just out of cell service. I posted a bunch of pictures from our neighborhood in Long Island that shows the damage Irene left behind if you’d like to add this to your collection: http://www.biculturalmama.com/2011/08/photos-hurricane-irene-damage-in-long.html

    Im so glad you are okay, and nothing too serious happened. Ive never been in something like this before. I live in Indiana. So sometimes this dull boring state is a good place to live when it comes to natural disasters and stuff.

    As many of us dodged the bullet big time, others were not so lucky. Glad to hear you and the boys are ok.

    Let’s continue to pray for those that were not so lucky…
