Prayers sent for everyone affected by this storm.
If there is anything I can do to help out fellow retriever enthusiasts, please let me know. I can deliver dog food, temporary kennels, or can shelter 3 dogs here on the eastern shore of Maryland if your kennels have been damaged. I am about 3 hours from NJ.
"New Jersey’s power companies are stressing today that they are accepting help from both union and non-union crews during the massive effort to restore power to those still in the dark in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.The clarification comes after a utility company from Alabama said a six-man crew was headed to New Jersey on Wednesday, but turned back in Virginia after they said concerns were raised about whether New Jersey would accept help from the company’s non-union utility crew.Non-union crews should not be concerned about coming to New Jersey to help bolster the efforts of New Jersey utility companies, officials said today."

Training is not science, it is art. A blend of this, a measure of that, a deep breath at the appropriate moment and always a loving touch.
Jim, there was nothing "funny" about Katrina or Andrew. I was here for both and it makes me sorrowful thinking of both those storms. South La is our home and we rebuild and do the best we can. No less than folks whose lives are turned upside down in tornado alley or out west when a big quake hits.Funny how folks go back to Katrina.. Figured they would have learned from Andrew back in the early 90's..
i don't believe for a second you meant any harm by your choice of words, so peace my friend. Peace.
i encourage all of our RTF brethren to donate to the Red Cross, or try to help in any way they can. Even a small donation means so much.
Just a little update. Gas is very difficult to find (reminds me of the Road Warrior). Many grocery stores had to throw out their perishables-meat, milk, all dairy, produce.
I am proud of my son. He is an RN and has volunteered to work at an emergency shelter.
I heard someone say that gas should be easier to get by Wednesday. I have enough to get by until Monday. Not too bad.

Whenever there is a natural disaster in a foreign country the US sends some sort of help or relief. I have not heard of any foreign country sending any kind of relief to the US. WHY Not?
