This week has been a week that we never want to go through. It is a repeat of Hurricane Katrina but on the East coast. The world watched as our friends & family on the East Cost were devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
The floods, the high winds, the power outages are unreal but million of people are dealing with the aftermath of the wrath of Sandy.
We send our prayers & thoughts to everyone effected by this storm. The rebuilding & getting back to normal will take weeks, months & possibly longer.
