The news is that we lost a big oak tree but did not flood this time. For this, I am thankful. Still, the rest of the county and the greater NY area is a mess & I pray for everyone that order is restored, they get their power back and they have liveable homes and safe loved ones.

Hey Sherry, glad to hear the flooding was not that substantial in your area.
Sherry Fairchok October 30, 2012 at 12:15 PM
Josh, thanks. I'll watch for reports of the area and its status. I remember last year, when we'd been devastated but others just had branches down on their property. The lesson to me was that, if you are fortunate & dodged the bullet this time, keep those who were less fortunate in your thoughts.

I agree. If you happen to snap up any pictures of the downed tree or your block, add them here: http://bronxville.patch.com/articles/send-patch-your-storm-photos#photo-11950035
