I think that I've been watching too many online videos and photos of flooding the past three days -- When I look out my window I find myself surprised to see that it's dry out there.
But it appears that my family and friends on the East Coast have come through the storm safely without much problem, so I'm thankful for that. The Jersey Shore didn't fare as well.
If I were Pollyanna desperately looking for a reason to be "glad" about this superstorm, it would be that it temporarily replaced the election as the #1 news story. A storm like this seems to bring out the best in people: our election process brings out the worst.
