Hey guys, Im alive and safe. Scott, thanks for your concern. I just got my power late last night after 4 days. It was cold, dark and a pain in the @ss. However, it is nothing compared to what I saw right in my own backyard here in Toms River and Seaside Heights along with firsthand accounts from friends on Long Beach Island. The pictures you see on the news are NOTHING compared to seeing it in person. I am very fortunate to only be without power for 4 days when family and friends that have lost everything. Its going to be a long, slow process to get back where we were here on the Jersey Shore, but we will eventually get there. Material things can be replaced and we will always have the memories of the shore and boardwalk in the summer. As long as you made it thru this disaster with your life, you're very fortunate and should count your blessings...which is what I have been doing. Thanks again guys and now I need to start making dough/pizza!
