I am awake in Bowie, Maryland this morning and happily we still have power. Sandy passed us by with hard steady rain and strong winds for the past 36 hours. The sights and sounds from the Jersey shore and New York City have revealed massive devastation. I guess we should all be glad that we have FEMA still. I have not posted in two months but hope that I can increase that frequency.
I really wonder if we should keep placing homes and businesses along the shore. They are destroyed so frequently and cost the country so much money that we need to at least consider why we allow them to go there.
We owe a great debt to all of the fire, police, and health personnel who have selflessly thrown themselves into saving everyone.
