This is what I saw when I opened the e-mail from our management company this weekend. We've had crazy, busy days since Wednesday so I didn't get a chance to sit down to my personal e-mail until Saturday. I couldn't believe it. We don't live here, of course, but we do have renters so the weekend was spent in dealing with this mess. The most annoying part about it (besides the fact that we plan to sell this property as soon as we return to the States and really don't want to put anymore money into it) is that our rental property isn't located anywhere near the hardest hit areas of the East Coast. After having spent the beginning of the week worrying over our friends and family living in NJ and NYC, it was completely ironic to find Sandy had bitten us in the rear. Now that we know our loved ones are safe (if not battered and still without power), I'm anxious for a way to help those affected by hurricane Sandy. I know Craft Hope has already started working on a relief project to help the victims, so you can bet I'll be participating.
