I have neglected this blog for too long. I am sorry about that, dear readers, but my recent efforts have been focused on my Gluten-Free Fun blog. I have been working tirelessly to help those with Celiac and on a necessary gluten-free diet after Hurricane Sandy ravaged our communities. You have all seen the news, so you know how horrible things are here in the tri-state area. Last night, we got blasted with the first snow of the season. Parts of already hard-hit areas accumulated up to 13 inches of snow! Everyone is reaching their breaking points. I am lucky I have never lost power and I have finally convinced my mother to come stay with me after 11 days without power, heat, or hot water. Her biggest problem was actually finding gas to come here!
Anyway, I wanted to share with you links about the storm for those of you who want to help, those of you looking for gluten-free food, and for those of you who are just curious about what is going on in NY, NJ, and CT after Hurricane Sandy.
