Today we are living in the aftermath of a Hurricane. The effects of Hurricane Sandy have been devastating to all South Shore residents. We were part of a mandatory evacuation. Police told people if they stayed they should put their social security number on their arm with a sharpie.

Our friendly bay village is in a state of shock. The tides have yet to recede from the streets. I have reports back that water was pouring from windows. I personally have friends that have a sailboat through their windows. Another source stated that one of my neighbors drown in their own home.

My own damage will be dealt with. My boys are safe. Our world is upside down. We will need help from family and friends. Thank you for your offers will will take you up on them I promise.

Continue to be safe a pray. The devastation is severe!
