I've been splitting my time between tag sale work and trying to help some of the people so deeply affected by Sandy. If you have any clothes you'd like to go to real people in the Long Island, Staten Island, and New Jersey areas, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have high-end items that you would like me to sell to donate some or all of the money to the cause, you can also email me at email@example.com.
There's still a lot of recovery to do but I hope to be back to regular blog posting on or after the 29th. I mostly stayed in during the storm and don't want to sensationalize the destruction too much, but here are some of my Instagrams from the storm.
|Water level starting to rise.|
|Gazebo out back halfway submerged.|
|Capsized and crashed.|
|Trying in vain to print things at Starbucks.|
|We no longer live in darkness.|
|But I still have no pots or utensils.|
|I do a hasty sketch of my new apartment.|
|I bundle up to clean snow off my car.|
|I am reunited with my wedding boots.|
|I visit Seaford, where generators & inspections abound.|
|We have access to real foodstuffs again.|
|I start donating stuff.|
A couple snaps with my camera, too:
|Fire Department tries to handle some destroyed boats littering the road a few yards up.|
|News crews survey the area.|
|A huge line of people come to see their destroyed boats and homes.|
|Fire Department gives up, tries to locate marina employee. Everyone departs.|
And one quick outfit shot from before the storm, when things were pretty sunny.
