Of Swiss dots and super storms
New Town has been on the receiving end of only the very mildest effects of Sandy - now called Super Storm Sandy in the news around here. It's been exciting to follow updates of storm surges, wave heights, flooded subways, freakish happenings like the side of a building falling away.... But now the reality of it is setting in. Several days have passed, and people are having to live with the consequences of that ruined building, those flooded subways, and the lack of electricity. The enormity of what this Super Storm has wrought is so far beyond my comprehension that is just isn't real for me. I keep you all in my thoughts and prayers, however, and hope you are all safe and sound. For any of you on the Left Coast, I pray that God keep you and yours safe from the devastating effects of the earthquakes. As for upcoming elections - both American and our own here in Ontario... o, dear Lord, help.
