Updated Frunor's Hurricane Sandy Update

Hi everyone. Just wanted to drop in and say hello. I have been so busy since the hurricane and haven't had any time for couponing. (Plus I no longer have a house or kitchen or stockpile for that matter, so I guess I don't have much of a choice!)

Not much has changed in the last couple of months. We are living in a hotel and have been since December. Last week, we signed a 6 month lease for an apartment a few miles from our house and will be moving in on March 15th. It will be nice to have some sort of routine and normalcy because the stress and trauma of the flood have weighed heavily on all of us especially my 3 year old. Most of all I miss being happy and carefree and seeing my husband and the boys that way.

I cannot believe how much time, work and stress have gone into dealing with and fighting for what we should be entitled to with FEMA and flood insurance. We are still "fighting" with our flood insurance company because we received the proposed settlement from them which is insulting low. We can't even afford to fix half of our house for that amount, but they are disputing everything. It is so mentally exhausting. All the uncertainty of not knowing if we can afford to fix our house and not knowing where we will be in 6 months is really unnerving. But, I thank God everyday that we all are alive and well and am trying to make sense of everything and stay strong for my family.

The majority of people in my area are still displaced, homeless or living in homes with no heat or electricity because they are waiting on money from their insurance companies. Media coverage has stopped and life has gone on, but my town and many others nearby are still devastated and struggling. Please keep my community in your thoughts. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and well wishes. I will try to keep everyone updated as often as I can.

Hurricane Sandy may have taken our house, but not our hearts! Please keep all of Sandy's victims in your thoughts. Although media coverage has stopped, many of us here are still homeless and struggling to make sense of it all.

What, no FEMA money. That's crazy. They should have been helping out by 2nd day.

That's sad to hear....I did hear recently that there were still MANY homes and people going without.
Ticks me off that the media has stopped discussing it, mainly for political reasons.
It is a HUGE disservice to you folks that are going through this.

I wish you the best and hope it all works out for all of you up there.

It's good to see you and thanks for the update! I am so sorry to hear things are still so up in the air and you are still fighting with the insurance on this. I can't even being to imagine all the emotions you are going through and all the stress that comes along with what you are facing and dealing with. Big hugs to you and your family and I hope your life can get back to normal soon. This is no way to treat people who were displaced by a natural disaster.

It is amazing how "there would be no red tape when it came to FEMA" and that is all there is! I have some YouTube friends in the area and know what you are going through.

Prayers for your situation. I have been there and know what you are feeling.
Prayers said on your behalf. Thank the Lord you are able to be in a hotel.
Concentrate on the good. Trust the Lord...it works.
