we here in the midwest are also davening for you. we have so many friends and family in ny, nj, rhode island and are very concerned about all our fellow yidden. please stay safe. wishing you all the best.August 28, 2011 7:08 am at 7:08 am #803485
wanderingchana – i don’t know if you’re still on your computer because you wrote “we’re outta here” but i hope you’re safe. it sounds like you had to leave your house? i thought if you hadn’t evacuated by now, you were supposed to remain inside. please keep us posted. k?August 28, 2011 7:10 am at 7:10 am #803486
i don’t really know how to give you chizzuk but all i can say is that i wish you the best and just remember that Ha-Shem is watching over you. while you’re up and probably have not much to do besides go on YWN, you might as well say some Tehillim and daven that everything should be fine. I’ll say some for you as well.August 28, 2011 9:20 am at 9:20 am #803487
We too in Phoenix Arizona are davening for our friends, family, and klal yisroel. May Hashem watch over you and keep everyone safe.August 28, 2011 10:42 am at 10:42 am #803488August 28, 2011 11:41 am at 11:41 am #803489
Same for those of us in Winnipeg. I find it so hard to look outside and there is barely a leaf moving to comprehend what you are going through. I have had MSNBC on all night.
My heart is with you. If any of you need anything, please use this thread to report in and let us know. If necessary, we will ask the mods for adresses or names to get aid to you. Also, when the transportation systems are open again, if any of you need a place to stay while repairs are being done, my home is open. I am quite sure that I am not the only one willing to house people. The important thing is that those of you in the affected area continue to let us know how you are – while you still have electricity.
Stay inside please, please, please.August 28, 2011 12:17 pm at 12:17 pm #803490
We re out here in Flatbush davening for all Yidden to be safe everywhere here and in E’Y. It is scary outside! This is an early call for teshuva:)) Never too early I guess. I wanted to comment because this thread is amazing! Yidden are the best!! we should always remember that and commit to not being petty again. When things go down — when anything happens — here people are offering their homes, etc. I am so touched by this this thread!! Mi Kamocha Yisroel!August 28, 2011 12:55 pm at 12:55 pm #803491
Irene just made landfall in new jersey. My sister lives there. New york, RI, and MA are next (probably in that order if not all at the same time). I have family and close friends in all of these locations. I am not at home as far rockaway (and lawrence) were officially evacuated (I went to brooklyn for shabbos and am still there now). I worry for myself not so much as I am together with other people. I worry more for my parents and younger sister in boston.

we are down to a tropical storm! rain should clear up by this afternoon! Irene has hit coney island with speeds of 65 mph winds. The storm itself is moving at a speed of 26 mph. No more hurricane! No more tornado watch! BH!

phoenician; I like ur name.August 30, 2011 9:13 am at 9:13 am #803494
MG, I guess those chocolate covered peanuts (?) you mentioned not too long ago wouldn’t count as aid… On a more serious note, that was very sweet of you.August 30, 2011 3:43 pm at 3:43 pm #803495
“…chocolate covered peanuts…that was very SWEET of you”
Thanks for the laugh! AND for acknowledging MG’s incredible offer.
Your positivity is positively refreshing. And hopefully infectious.August 30, 2011 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #803496
You are all very welcome – and I still have a few of those chocolate covered peanuts left. BTW, I was totally sincere about my offer – I never promise anything that I don’t mean. I would have found room for anyone that needed a place to stay – if there were an overflow crowd, I have lots of friends with spare rooms who would have been only too happy to help out. About 15 years ago there was severe flooding along the Red River from the US to Winnipeg. It was front page news all over North America. At the time I participated in a 50+ Jewish chat room. We were overwhelmed by the offers we had to stay with people from coast to coast across the US. I never forgot the generosity of everyone and always thought that perhaps one day I would be in a position to do the same thing for others. As it happened, we were in no danger as we have a floodway that surrounds the city and it only affected those with river property outside the city limits. One thing about Yidden – regardless of our differences, when push comes to shove, we are truly “brothers” (meant equally for both genders). Luckily, it appears that you are all safe even if many of you had some flooding or had no power. Things could have been much worse. In any event, my offer still stands and if any of you should ever be in “my home town”, there is a warm bed available.August 30, 2011 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #803497
Thanks again, mg
Do we look up “minyan gal” in the phone book?August 31, 2011 1:26 am at 1:26 am #803498
Your positivity is positively refreshing. And hopefully infectious.

Power just went back on! B”H. It was kind of tough to live in the 19th Century. Now let’s see if they cleared the roads yet.August 31, 2011 1:46 am at 1:46 am #803500

B”H. I’m happy to see you have your priorities straight. ?August 31, 2011 2:17 am at 2:17 am #803501
AYC: I’ll make sure to list myself like that in next year’s phone book. If you are coming before then, we shall have to bribe the Mods to disclose my location (I am actually in the witness protection program).
