@Linda: we live right near the High School and to be truthful got VERY little damage from the storm. I know, we're SO lucky. Our neighbourhood's lines are all underground (thanks to a forward-thinking builder over 30+ years ago (Emmy Building Co.)--gotta give praise where it's deserved. We're on a hill with old-growth trees protecting our back and only had a 4hr blackout the night AFTER the storm had passed, presumably from the crews working --or someone taking down a tree since we're still subject to the above-ground lines further out. But I'm VERY grateful for our little area being so protected..a few downed limbs, one tree down between several other homes, one friend's old (partial) fence down. NO flooding at all. We're still thankful and can't complain at all compared to what other people/areas are going through. Getting gas for cars now is the main issue but most of 112's businesses have been operating all along. We were spared..there IS something to be said for not living quite so close to the water. Don't worry about Medford--there are areas of NY still out of power with people desperate for gas to power oxygen tanks or with no heat--and it's getting cold (36 right now). Feeling this secure whenever there's a major storm is the reason we don't leave LI for warmer climes although .we've discussed it often--I can't imagine living anywhere else since most areas of the country have their own issues: drought, wildfires, earthquakes, tornados, etc. Where to go? Take care. :)

I'm not accusing anyone of "faking it". http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com My point is that our Pompeii - like most classical http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net sites, in fact - is the product of collaboration between http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com modern rebuilders and conservators, and the original Roman builders http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com themselves, with the lion's share of the work on our side.And it's no less impressive or moving http://www.coachoutletaol.org for that - as the body casts help to show.One of http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net the video clips played in the exhibition at the Getty Museum comes http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com from Roberto Rossellini's film, Voyage in Italy, in which the lead couple, http://www.coachfactoryoutlettx.com played by Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders, tour the country as their marriage http://www.coachfactoryonlinefc.org disintegrates.On their visit to Pompeii they watch the plaster being http://www.coachoutletwy.com poured into a cavity left by two of the victims. http://www.coachoutletonlineybw.com In the movie's most haunting scene, these victims emerge as a couple.
