I'm trying to figure out what we should do to help those who were not as lucky as we were. We have some information that we need to look over and figure out if we should donate food or money or time (which is tough as I want to spend every waking second with LB.) I'm not that organized but I feel guilty that we are home now like nothing happened when there are so many still hurting.
Here are just a few pics from around our neighborhood. It has been pretty surreal seeing so many huge trees hanging from power lines or lying across streets. We're close enough to the water that we've seen a lot of families pumping the water out of their houses with all their possessions in garbage bags out on the street. These pictures don't really do justice to how scary it is to see it in person. It seems like every single block had a huge tree either on a house or in the road. That along with broken street lights made even the daylight after the storm seem eery. I'm sure in another week once we're back to our routine it will seem very distant and Leona will never remember this but it's a time I won't forget.
