My heart aches for my adopted city. I spent all day Monday reading about the flooding, fires and loss of power across the New York City area. I hope everyone is safe and hopefully those who have lost power are able to stay safe and warm.
I'm still in Washington State, hoping I'll be able to get back to New York and fly in to LaGuardia on Thursday afternoon. Sourabh and our pets were in our apartment on the Upper West Side. Thankfully they did not lose power so were simply house-bound. I hated being separated from them, but I'm thankful that they were safe.
If you have the time, NYC Service's Facebook page has information on volunteering around the city. I'm hoping I'll be able to help out in some way when I get back.
