Hey everyone, we are still here!

Hi friends. I just wanted to pop in quickly and let you know that we are ok. I'm writing this from work, because we have no power at home. This also means we have no heat, which has made things interesting as the temperatures drop (thank goodness I washed all of those blankets last week).

We have some damage in the backyard - a big tree is down and parts of our fence are destroyed. But we are very thankful because nothing damaged the house or our cars. David's school is closed until the power comes back on there and Halloween has been postponed in NJ until Monday.

These are some pictures from my hometown, where my parents still live (courtesy of the Atlantic Highlands Herald).


There is so much damage in the tri-state area. A lot of people lost their homes, either from flooding or from damage from falling trees. Thousands of people are without power and it will likely not be restored for many more days if not a week or two. If you would like to help, please consider donating to The Red Cross or the Salvation Army. And of course, your continued thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated. Thanks, everyone.


  1. Glad you and your family are safe and well. I hope the clean up will be as swift as possible.

  2. I'm glad to hear you're OK and hope things get back to normal soon. Take care.

  3. I'm glad to hear you are safe and sound Lindsey! I hope your power is back soon, do lots of cuddling until then :)

  4. Oh Lindsey, Glad to hear you and your family are safe. And I'm with Jennifer in hoping that the power is turned on soon. Sending positive thoughts and prayers your way!

  5. I am sorry you're going through this, though I am glad you're safe. I'll be keeping you and your family in my thoughts.
