Boston Globe Photos – Hurricane Sandy. Prayers…

Sometimes it is a good thing to live under a rock. Sometimes it is not such a good thing. I don’t get TV reception and catch the news from BBC headlines on my computer. Living out here in Western Maryland, east of the Catoctins on the other side of the ancient rift valley where Frederick lies, we made it through Hurricane Sandy relatively unscathed. Sure some water in the basement here — but less than expected since the kind neighbor had cleared the leaves out of the gutters two days before the hurricane hit.

But I just scrolled through this series of photos from the Boston Globe’s “The Big Picture” series. And it is devastating and heartwrenching to look through these. Some of the photos are of the devastation in Cuba and Haiti too. Plus West Virginia.

As I’m writing this, another storm–a nor’easter is hitting NYC and surrounding parts adding insult to injury. Most of those folks have not gotten electricity back yet and it’s going to very extremely cold and wet, again. In apartments and homes that have not had heat for going on 9 – 10 days.

Oh, I send prayers… and hope that they find warm shelter. And that their possessions are safe wherever they have left them.

Prayers… big prayers.
