Awesome hub of the Day article that many people can relate to today
This hub of the day was written by Toknowinfo - Remarkable!
Her hub addressed all that Hurricane Sandy brought to the East Coast through a true survivors eyes
The calm after the storm - (Response to hub of the day)
That hub article up above in the image there of all hubs deserved to be a hub of the day, and was written by hub author Toknowinfo. It is entitled "In the Path of Super Storm Sandy", I read each and every line and word there in her hub as I do with every hub I indeed choose to read, no skimming, no whatever other people may do as they supposedly read hubs and simply type gibberish into a comment areas at times. (I loved her hub because it was true reality being fully expressed, and she wrote it with superb skill as well, earning her Hub of the Day! in December 2012)
Spread the love folks! for her and pay her hub article a visit if possible. (Displayed in the image up above)
How it looked growing up
I can truly relate to her experience
I been through this natural disaster with you, I am a fellow New Yorker, however I live in a very poor neighborhood in Queens, and very close to where you reside.
I can truly relate from my youthful years of growing up in the South Bronx as well (Link to an article of a major human disaster zone rather then a natural disaster, but it was disaster for sure), which was a complete human disaster zone back then, and all the way up to my teenage years close to adulthood. I experienced homelessness 3 times and I expressed such a reality in many hubs here for people to read about, as well as in comment areas.
So, during Hurricane Sandy and all throughout the days, and successive weeks after its aftermath. I thought to myself long and hard about all my years of experiencing personal hardships congruent to it, and I felt if I had experienced such things before in the past that I knew I could make it through, if the event took place where maybe our home were to be completely lost, from the hurricanes devastation, thank god nothing occurred to us or our homes where I currently reside in Jamaica Queens.
Here's a gasoline video captured one day after the Nor'Easter storm, and directly a week after Hurricane Sandy
Thank god we were in zone 3, and we were praying too for our lives
We live here and its in hurricane evacuation Zone 3
No laughing matter here
Life is no joke, and especially when any disaster strikes period, I think that our human tenacity to survive will kick in somehow, and as we digress backwards into our true nature, as you stated here with the mens beards growing and y'all ladies not wearing make up and all.
Something does indeed occur to us humans, I feel that god has armed us all with the instinct to make it through anything, as your hub here suggests to its readers towards the very end @ Toknowinfo.
Yes indeed many of us are survivors, and I commend you on sticking it through, and your kids are true soldiers, and survivors as well. I love the way you pointed out all the details of what actually occurred in a more chronological order, moment by moment frame work of reference at that (Nice writing style).
Your imagery used was graphic enough to convey the right messages as well, they all were both relevant and truly surreal, which made it feel as if I was actually there in those scenarios with you, as I read this hub article of yours and filled with truth like no other.
Me and my family here was very lucky, we live in a hurricane disaster Zone 3 area of Queens, that suffered mere minor damages from fallen trees, but we did suffer from massive power outages as you did, but somehow our particular neighborhood remained powered, thank god! (Our lights just flickered once or twice)
This was the evening of the Nor'Easter Storm
We were spared thank God
We didn't experience any flooding here neither, but we did experience the shortage of gas, and it happened immediately and lasted for 4 weeks here where we live in Jamaica Queens. I was feeling so bad about all of my neighbors such as yourself, and decided to form a FB group to help people locate one another just in case if folks were to get displaced and all due to Sandy's devastation, and also for my own extended family relatives whom live in NYC could actually communicate onto a single FB page there for all intensive purposes.
This hurricane was indeed no joking matter at all, and it was a very serious humbling experience for most east coast residents who was in the direct path of its land fall. I feel sorry for all those who lost their family members, for all those who lost their homes, and uninsured possessions.
Many of these folks will not be able to fully recover from all the destruction that have claimed much of their lives, and family members lives. I pray to God if he's indeed listening, I simply pray for forgiveness, if he is indeed angry at humanity for whatever reason, because there's been so much hardship that's been getting sent our ways recently, and one after another without a break it seems.
Overall thanks for writing up this super revealing article that showcases it all, as you have indeed experienced a harsh reality, that all humans can learn from today.
