Hurricane Sandy (A break from my Amsterdam pictures)
As many of you know I fly to New York a lot and most of my family is still up there. I was actually in NY on the 13th of October and will have pictures from that trip shortly. I wanted you to know that my family is fine. My cousin Iris lost power for about 5 days and just got her power back on Saturday. She lives in Jersey City NJ. My dad is still without power as of this morning. My mom and my sister both fared well and neither one of them lost power at all. As you know my sister a photographer for the city and when she was able to get around she has been taking pictures throughout the city for them. Visiting most of the housing projects. She’ s been working hard, normally there are two of them (photographers that is) but the other photographer had water in his basement and had to take care of his house stuff. Hopefully, the worst is behind them and things will get cleaned up pretty quickly. I know seeing the pictures of the flooded subways and tunnels shocked me and pulled at my heart. Though I no longer live in NY I still love to visit there and it will always have a place in my heart.
