Oh Kimmar, this makes me want to get in my car and drive down with a trunk full of full gas containers (totally unsafe, I know). Is there anything at all we can do? Anything, honestly. Nothing's too big or small.

I don't know that I know where you're physically located but know that wherever you are Sandy obviously had a big impact. And on top of everything else! Our little city in Southeastern, MA was very fortunate, but my heart is broken for all those who weren't so lucky.

.....in northern NJ. No school again tomorrow, the NJEA Teachers' Convention in Atlantic City [next week, which non-Jerseyans typically call 'Jersey Week'] has been canceled, the gas lines are HIDEOUS - the aftermath is truly disastrous.... a few towns away is Moonachie,, which has made national headlines. We are on one side of Teterboro Airport, they are on the other, next to Little Ferry. The two towns are basically under water....

I've been praying for your brother, for you and for your family.

That stinks! I wish I lived close enough to come and get you and drive you to Philly.

I do know of Moonachie and my God all that flooding! Are there any rail lines running yet?

I know right know BOS-NY Amtrak service is ending in New Haven, but someone told me they're restoring/have restored service to Philly. I'm sure you've thought of that and if it were possible you'd be doing it, but just a thought.

And this might seem a little out in left field, but, could you Skype or FaceTime with him a bit? Not the same as in-person but...

....well, I know that my niece is safe - she's just a hop, skip, and jump from YOU (goes to Univ. of Tampa)...and, one positive note: my DH drove to upstate NY and got gas for my car. He and my oldest DS just emptied [into my gas tank] 2 of the 3 gas cans that they had filled.....

The Red Cross is doing a lot of mobile feeding stations all across NJ/NY, so you may want to give them a call. I just Google'd (I love that that's a verb LOL) shelters for Moonachie flood victims and found THIS article, which had shelter info.

I also found THIS shelter info. (dated as of yesterday morning) for Morris County. Not sure how close/far these places are, but hope it helps!

Up here, we're about 25-40 minutes from the hardest hit parts of RI and they're providing links on the news for places to go with sign-up sheets for help. I know giving $$ is the most helpful thing you can give, and I will, but it will be limited and I like to give of myself too, y'know? Like you and the ziti.
