I received a peanutbutter and jelly sandwich and a bottle of water from a van yesterday afternoon

While I was working to put our home back together my local government employees drove by offering food and water to people in my neighborhood where Sandy's storm surge reached 9+ feet.

I was hungry while working so I accepted a sandwich and a bottle of water. I was offered a whole case of water and other nonperishable food - I declined and accepted only what I needed at the moment.

I nearly cried, I was so happy that someone gave a shit.

I guess I got a bit of my "free stuff."

Thank you "collectivists!"

So, I guess I fall somewhere between communist and socialist but it's been a heck of a long time since I've heard the term collectivist as well. If you look at my sig line, I'm part of that collective, too. I really, really, really believe in the we before me. I'm glad there are more and more of us around.

72. All decisions

 

have to consider the collective/community and how it will be effected. You're lucky to have a communal living situation. I live in a small apartment complex where the dude next door wants to beat the crap out of me. I asked him to turn down the music after midnight. Then I was told that "We're going to get rid of you." Not very communal, I'd say. Anyway, I think I've taken care of this situation.

We all live in such tiny places with so many people around. It's like that experiment with the rats...how many can you put in a cage before they turn on each other???

I'm also a big fan of the Business Coop. Socialism meant 'sharing' to me. Isn't that what we were taught as children?

I'll check out your sig line.

29. Long Beach, NY 10 blocks from the beach

Cannot believe she stayed! 2 1/2 feet of water in her house, just remodeled last year, no flood insurance. I love her as family, but wonder why she didn't think it would be so bad despite the evacuation order. I so wanted to call her up and plea that she leave! I'm a geologist and could have described to her the play-by-play, just like how I watched it unfold online and on tv, and just like I learned in school how barrier islands are the last place to be during a hurricane.

She is staying with our aunt in Flushing and still has her job and health. She'll rebuild and will be fine. I worry for so many others who will not.

Before my mom and I leave for NY with supplies (might be a couple of months until she's ready for materials), I'll PM you to see if you or your friends need anything. In the meantime, to please let me know if I can do anything!

42. I shudder to think what the insurance was for that

if that would even be covered, considering his profession.

I know that a huge majority of these coastal homes were already built, paid off, and handed down within families, but at least evacuation orders should be given due attention. Forecasting for storm surge and other hurricane hazards is so sophisticated nowadays. They can tell exactly which blocks of which neighborhoods are most at risk based on topography, etc. It's really tragic what happened and I hope it becomes a hard-learned lesson going forward. The biggest difference between the storm of 1962 (?) and now is the forecasting ability.

10. My guess is this was a local worker's private initiative.

Paid out of their own pockets. The government doesn't hand out peanut butter and jelly sandwiches because of public health issues. That's why the Red Cross gets government money (strict food handling guidelines) and Food Not Bombs gets driven out of public parks for trying to feed the homeless. I think this was neighbors helping neighbors - perhaps an even sweeter story.

63. MREs add another dimension to the story.

Could have been any combination of groups, then. I worked with a Methodist relief agency after Hurricane Katrina who'd been given MREs from the government to hand out, and they also served a lunch (with many a pb&j) to local kids in their church dining room. At any rate, I'm glad to know there are feet on the ground serving you.

12. Been there, done that. You should have taken all you needed when they offered

We were out of power 10 days when tornadoes hit Al and cut off from any help the first day. I refused to go to the feeding stations that had been set up because I felt like I should save that for someone worse off than myself that might not even have shelter. Food that I could buy in the stores once I could get there was very limited the first couple of days as was ice to keep my sandwich stuff cold but it got better. By the time we were able to get to work again and the power was back, I had spent quite a chunk restocking and I was sick to death of sandwiches. I wished I had taken the free hot meals that were offered, lol. Thinking about you guys every day and hoping for the best.

My neighborhood in Westchester County got back the electricity last night.
After 10 days without. Our main problems were power outage, downed trees and impassable roads. No damage to the home, though, thank G#d.
For about a week, I have been staying at my mother's home 5 miles away. I'm taking my stuff back to my place tomorrow.

56. Where are you?

I'm in Hoboken, NJ and 50% of the town was flooded. Luckily, I'm on high ground and my apt. bldg. and car were fine. Although we were without power for almost a week. After the storm only one street in the entire town had power. The transformers were so flooded that it took days to pump the water out and repair them.

Today was my first day back at work. The company has several offices in downtown Manhattan and they aren't going to be back in use for about 8 weeks. It's a mess.

Good luck with the cleanup. I hope that you didn't lose much.

71. I'm glad that you got a little bit of help. I'm happy to help pay for that.

Disasters hit my state sometimes too. If I am ever unlucky enough to be in a disaster - which is probable sooner or later - then I know that you will not begrudge me a little bit of help and you will be glad that your tax dollars are helping us all out.

That's what this is all about. Republicans don't get that.
