Mommy, who Is Sandy and why was she so mean?

Two weeks ago, we were visiting with friends at the CPS Region 2 Conference in Atlantic City. Two days after the meeting, "Sandy" hit, flooding the New Jersey shore and wreaking havoc across fourteen states.

The storm has passed but over one million people are still without power and storm-related losses are expected to total between 30 to 50 billion dollars.

How can people help? The Red Cross and FEMA both offer options for donations and volunteering.

How do you explain a disaster like this to a child? Here is a great list of resources from Boston's NPR news station.

As we enter into the holiday season, please take extra special care of yourself and those you love.
