Oct 30, 2012 Hurricane Sandy Our son was born on the day of the unusual October snow storm of 2011. This year we were hit with Hurricane Sandy on his birthday, and we were very lucky to have come out of it safe. I wonder what weather event his second birthday will bring. All we can say is that these natural disasters make you appreciate the important things in life...family, friends, good health,and safety. We wish all the families who were hit hard by the storm a speedy recovery to their normal way of life.
