Everyone by now has heard about Sandy, the mass super storm that hit the East Coast last week. I will admit I paid little to no attention to the news before the storm. The newscasters here in MN are well known for being wrong about the weather reports. I figured it was the same.
But then I started seeing posts on my twitter feed and facebook of people without power. And then the flooding and other pictures starting swamping my facebook feed. And I couldn’t turn away from the news. We had so so so minor flooding in our town earlier this spring and witnessing that alone I cannot image. I felt so very helpless in my warm house. I instantly wanted to help, but what can I do? I donated a few things that I had extra around the house and then saw this blogging event. And knew I had to participate.
Comfort food is a standby around here in the winter. Nothing warms the soul more then a warm casserole or hotdish. I wish I could deliver a bunch of these dishes to the hardest hit. So please take a moment today and donate to the Red Cross, and say a prayer for all the people hit by this violent horrible storm.
