I feel so lucky to have not had any damage from the storm; I didn't even lose power. I have no idea how or why I was so fortunate this time out but I am so grateful.
All day, there has been an overload of images of the destruction, stories about the havoc and the hardest part, the effect on people I know and places that are a part of my history.
I feel a little helpless, a lot of sadness and yet, I have so much to be happy for - its a balancing act.
Once again, it's about the healing process now.
