After Hurricane Sandy has passed, the main feeling going through my head is lucky. I am very lucky that I or any of my loved ones were hurt. Though nobody I know was hurt, many were affected. Most of my step dad's family lives in New Jersey, and many of them near the shore. They had to evacuate to a more safe area, leaving their homes and boats behind. My step dad went over this weekend to help his family and assess the damage, and flooding has caused tons of damage. Fallen trees have also affected them, one falling on his sister's house.
