Well, the worst of Irene in Cliffwood Beach, NJ is over. We had some trees down, and some flooding, but overall, better than what we expected. I decided to keep aware and did not sleep until the worst of the hurricane was over. Facebook helped me cope with Irene, and in a way, it helped ease my nerves. I talked to family and friends while the winds were hitting the house, and this proved to be good storm therapy for me. This proves once more that FB is more than a networking site, it extends to much more. It has become a way for us to communicate during hard times, and many times the only way when phones and other ways of communication don’t work.
Irene scared the heck out of many people; I Facebooked my way through Irene.
