I couldn't help thinking about the only person I knew who lived there. We haven't been hearing from Bccmee much lately since she took an indefinite hiatus from her blog. I knew she was a very proud New Yorker and I very worried about her. So I sent her an email a couple of weeks ago to see how she was doing. I figured the rest of you would want to hear about her too. Here is her reply to my query about how she had weathered the storm.
Thanks so much for your note! It's really terrible what happened. Iwas very lucky since I live inland. Our power stayed on and there was no flooding. The biggest damage was to our trees and cars and some buildings sustained relatively minor damage. Here are some photos I took yesterday of the aftermath in my neighborhood:

You can see plenty of damage from downed trees

Luckily no one was hurt!
Well, since today is her birthday, I would like to wish Bccmee a very Happy Birthday, and send her many good wishes. I am very glad she is doing well and though I miss her amazing blog posts I hope she is enjoying herself out in the real world.
And to those people who were adversely affected by Hurricane Sandy, I hope things get better for you very soon!
