How Is Your Life Still Impacted by Sandy?

Share your thoughts with the Patch community.

We recognize there are thousands of people still affected by Hurricane Sandy: folks whose homes were destroyed, whose belongings are gone, whose livelihoods have been affected.

Countless more people have also been affected in some way by the devastation, and have been compelled to show an outpouring of support for the victims, whether in monetary donations to relief organizations, time spent helping in the recovery efforts, or with donations of food, clothing, and other necessities.

Some were without power for days and some for weeks, freezing in the early winter weather while utility companies struggled to keep up with the demand for repairs.

But now, in the three weeks since Hurricane Sandy hit: the trees have been mostly cleared from the roads locally, gas rationing is over, and municipalities have begun to end their state-of-emergency orders. Thus we ask: How does the storm continue to affect you? Has life returned to "normal" for you?

We were the lucky ones....no damage to our home and never lost power or cable services. I have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving and my heart goes out to the folks who lost their homes and lives.
