Still in the midst of high winds and some flooding due to Hurricane/Tropical Storm Sandy.  It’s been a crazy night, with Atlantic City taking a direct hit from the storm, New Jersey beach towns being severely damaged, and a good portion of lower Manhattan without power.  Thousands of trees have been reported down, millions of people without power.  It will take some time to get things back to “normal”.  In the midst of this, there have still been people ignoring warnings to evacuate, and more who ignore warnings to stay off the roads.   This really impedes the ability of first responders who need to get to actual emergencies, and puts so many in harm’s way that could be avoided.  Please do the kind (and responsible) thing and heed the instructions of officials.  They have the cities’ best interests at heart as well as their citizens.  Also keep the first responders in your prayers and thoughts as they stay out in the danger to keep others safe…
