Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort

I am very grateful to say that I made it through Sandy with little to no problems. Even my family and friends on the Cape fared pretty well. Massachusetts was fortunate enough to have avoided major damage. However, New York and New Jersey weren't so lucky. The damage to both of these states has been called "incalculable" and "devastating." Recovery is going to be a massive task and these areas need all the help they can get.

The American Red Cross is looking for as many donations as possible to help with Hurricane Sandy relief. Please consider donating to local Red Cross chapters in regions directly affected by the storm, such as the South Central New York chapter (here):

Of course, other states in the Northeast have also been affected by the hurricane, but (so far) New York and New Jersey  have had it the worst. If you wish, you can also make a general donation to the American Red Cross through its website.

As President Obama said yesterday, "The great thing about America is that when we go through tough times like this, we all pull together."
