|It wasn't very long before we lost power (5.0 pm) and that was the way it
remained for four days. Over 7 million others were in the same situation.
|The morning after the severe winds dropped
a little, we looked around to luckily see just
two trees and lots of branches down on our
farm; however, most of the roads were
blocked. Trees and electric wires were down
all over the place..
|I took these photographs near our home.

Synthia and I just returned from
donating food, cloths and blankets
to the American Red Cross Disaster
Relief request for help. Tens of
thousands are still without power

|There is displaced anger erupting from frustrated people. Power-line workers have been pelted with eggs in Bridgeport, Ct. by some who feel they are waiting too
long for electricity. Having only been without power for four days, we didn't experience such frustration, however, the line workers are not the people to be angry
personally, I think the utilities and emergency responders have been brilliant. The organization and efficiency with which they have gone about restoring power and
clearing huge problems with infrastructure has been extremely impressive. There is a long way to go, but hold in there, everyone is doing their best.
There has been outpouring of compassion and help for those in trouble and a pleasant nature between people in general. I wonder why we cant be like this all

|9 Days After Superstorm 'Sandy' Comes Winter Storm 'Athena' - Same Area Hit Again
|A Nor'Easter storm deepened on the 7th November and came up the coast to hit the same areas of the north east of the United States that were effected by Sandy. Winter storm Athena was wild
throughout the night of November 7-8th, 2012. In Nth Guilford, Connecticut we had a 6 - 8" snow fall with drifts of several feet and an additional 691,000 homes lost power.We lost another tree,
actually half of the tallest tree on the property. The 90-100 footer would have crashed into the horse ring had the direction varied another 25 degrees. Shown center of spread above.

questions like, what next and how far will it go? Are we prepared for
the extremes which might appear sooner than we had anticipated?
