Give to the Red Cross

Things are bad in New Jersey and New York.  I didn’t really know.  I was preoccupied by my own minor Hurricane Sandy experience.  On Cape Cod, school was cancelled but we didn’t even lose power.  A few downed limbs and pine needles on the roads.  Nothing even to clean up.

Then I started seeing the pictures on TV.  People died.  Damages in the $50 billion range.  Neighborhoods burned down, other ones flooded, subways flooded, New York City building without power, people unable to flush their toilets, and there are mile long gas lines.  When people go without these resources, problems get much worse before the get better.

If you haven’t already, please consider donating to the Red Cross.  Donate now here.  They also need blood donations.  Enter your zip code to learn about blood donation opportunities here.
