More Sandy Updates

Hurricane Sandy Depressing
So, the other day we were busy over at our house. Things are still depressing over there.
 
The yard has some high grass that we have to somehow take care of. Did I mention previously that the lawnmower was under Aleks' grandfather's house? So we have to figure that out.
 
We did take a walk down the street and the good news is there is growth from plants and other grass and stuff, but still no one is back in their house. Most people have to tear down their house and start over, but the insurance company and the Town of Hempstead are pretty much useless. The town refuses to get a grant writer which would allow people access to the federal money that only towns can apply for. So yeah... :/
 
There are a lot of people out of their homes and sadly a lot of homes for sale in the area, it is so bad that local businesses can no longer be sustained. Our local pizza place for example had to close. They are gone! Sadly I fear that as time goes on it will get much worse.
 
Things are still insanely hard for us!
 
I'll be honest about two days after I recorded for the BZPowercast I pretty much lost it and had a mental breakdown that lasted a good two days. We are at our wits end and after losing so much we will continue to lose more.
 
In other news Animal Crossing has freaking kept me sane. I will post a bit more of my adventures in Animal Crossing a bit later.

That's awful that a whole community (and others I imagine) were just destroyed and as of yet given no chance to survive and rebuild. :( I'm still hoping you guys can manage to get back into your own space soon!

Hang in there, man.  Can't believe that the town's still dragging its feet on getting grants.  =/

 

Thoughts are with you guys as always.
