I talked with a friend who lives near the coast of Maryland yesterday. She and her children had left for the hurricane, while her husband stuck it out at home. There was no damage, and it turned out to be anticlimactic. They did not even lose power.
I realize that for those who are dealing with floods and power outages that this is no fun, and for those who lost loved ones this is tragic, but compared to predictions of “the storm of the century” and images of a Katrina-like disaster in New York and DC we were spared. Deaths are apparently in the tens, not the thousands. Thanks be to God that the east coast got off so lightly, and prayers for those who have been affected by the storm
