There are still many thousands of people on Long Island STILL without power, heat, or water 8 days after Sandy. My mother left Smithtown for Land O' Lakes, FLA to stay with my sister awhile, because of the continuing situation there.<quoted text>
I grew up on beautiful Long Island NY. We called it nor'easter.
Great Long Island song!
I was without power for 6 days in Patchogue when Hurricane Gloria hit in 1985. Glad I'm not there for this mess. It's sposed to hit 91 here today and, hasn't rained here for months. The weather here sees to be almost ALWAYS beautiful here in southern Arizona. I've been here almost a year now. Rented a house here in Coolidge til 2014. You can rent or buy beautiful houses here dirt cheap because of the housing bust.
