Folks, following the past few weeks of severe weather causing all sorts of havoc in my region, starting with Hurricane Sandy and finishing up with Winter Storm Athena, I’m working to get Flying With Fish back on track. Lack of power and direct access to the internet makes writing a blog a bit of a challenge … especially while chasing three kids around.
For those of you who have been impacted by the One-Two-Punch of the recent weather in the Northeast of the United States, I hope your power is back on and that you are warm and safe. If your home has been damaged and you’re still without power, my thoughts are with you.
If you are in a position to help those directly in need, look up the NYC*EMS BlackSheep Disaster Relief group on Facebook. The BlackSheep are current and former members of New York City’s Emergency Medical Service, now FDNY’s Bureau of EMS . These trained rescuers, many of whom have been directly impacted by Hurricane Sandy, who are doing all that they can to assist others that are in dire need following Hurricane Sandy. Anything you can do to help The BlackSheep goes right to those in need. No middle man, no bureaucracy, no red tape … so look them up, reach out to them and see how you can help them do what they do best … help others.
You can make donations through WorkingSaintsUSA.org. When making donations through PayPal ensure that you write in “Blacksheep Relief Effort” in the special instructions area for the funds to go directly to relief efforts in New York.
Below are photos I shot in my town after Hurricane Sandy paid us a visit … and we came though the storms far better than many others.
