Sandy is gone and, like a rude child, has left much behind it to clean up.
My husband, our three cats and I were very lucky to suffer almost no damages: we never lost power (or the Internet!), we had little rain and Sandy was quickly gone (in 3-4 hours max).
The American spirit is amazing. Americans will not whine: they will take matters into their own hands, clean up their yards, pump up water, rebuild and go on with their lives. Usually, they’ll do this with humor. I love it. I am in awe in front of such resilience.
Oh and contrary to Danny (John Travolta), we are kind of happy that you left us, oh Sandy…
