My hometown of ocean county (seaside, toms river to be exact) have been devestated. My husband and I are very upset as all our childhood places have been washed away. The boys are upset as they were just in seaside on Saturday right before the hurricane hit. We spend almost all summer down the shore as all my friends and family still remain there. Basically all my friends are homeless and it's so upsetting. It's hard to listen to my mom cry when everything around her is gone.
We are retreating to Harrisburg because with 7 people in our family it's literally the ONLY place that can house us comfortably. (I should have been in Harrisburg yesterday picking up my chickens from Silver. :-/
We have already called our insurance company to file a claim for my coop, the loss of all our food and now to add to the mix, my brand new hardwood floor is ruined due to the ice melting in my fridge. I had a huge puddle on the seam between the tile and hardwood and now the hardwood is spongy and lifted. We are going through so much it's depressing. State Farm was unable to tell us when to expect an assessor to come to the house. We've only been our house exactly a month. :-(
A, I feel you on the devastation of childhood. I can't explain to the grandkids what it means that EVERYTHING is gone.
B. Where in HBG will you be? If you need somewhere to bring the kids, bring them here, they can see our chickens, and play with our kids!
