The pictures make me feel like I could do anything to help. I would get down to the bad flooded places and try to help as much as I can. When I saw the news about all the freezing blizzard, I wondered about how much rain they would get if it was not so cold. It also made me wonder," If this is just the beginning of Fall and it's freezing enough to snow, then I wonder how cold the winter is going to be." I hope that in the next month that all the people that got caught in Hurricane Sandy will be back to their normal lives.

In Atlantic City, N.J. the cars are flooded there houses are damaged I would not want to be them right now. I am happy that President Obama and Governor Romney had sympathy and skipped their campaign to talk to the places that have drilled by this multi-storm hurricane. One thing I thought was a weird was the hurricane rained, snowed, and had high winds. You have to now this hurricane is pretty bad because they closed Wall Street for two whole days. It was a very devastating hurricane I hope the victims can recover and people that died R.I.P. ( rest in peace ).

To put myself in the shoes of people in New York, I would be terrified to be in a storm like Hurricane Sandy, with power outages and knocked down trees. My aunt was in this storm and she lives in Ossining, New York and there was lots of flooding and her power went out. I was devastated to hear that so many people were hurt and even killed. Hurricane Sandy was very scary and dangerous.

The storm has caused a great deal of damage and many people are without power. Its storms such as these that cause us to realize which things in life are most important, and which things in life are secondary. Family is important, as is having a warm and dry place to live and sleep. The storm touched us all in our most vulnerable spot: our home.

My hope is that from Hurricane Sandy we all grow in our appreciation of the most important things in our lives...things so constantly present that we can easily lose sight of just how meaningful they are.

They are currently in a hotel and the have three german shepards (ones a puppy) too. That makes it even harder.

I think that a lot of tragedy and heart-break could have been averted if people had evacuated like they were supposed to. Some of the hesitation might have been due to the mandatory evacuation of Hurricane Irene which wasn't as bad as forecasted, but even then, people should have followed the authorities's advice which might have saved lives - property can always be replaced.

I think that picture #8 is a completely tragic scene. I am pretty certian that it was the entrance to a subway station, If that is true then they will have to pump water out of miles and miles of train track. Almost all of the people in New York use the subway, too. How will they travel? It will take months to get the trains working again. Hurricane Sandy really was a disaster.
