Mama Deb

For anyone in the New York Area

If you've been hearing about a scaffolding collapse - that was on the opposite end of the block where I live.

I was not home at the time of the collapse and did not hear about it for hours afterwards (my synagogue was doing a presentation on the environment and Judaism.) My husband was, at the time, at a cantorial conference in Teaneck, so he, too, is fine.

It is awful, my street is still, afaik, closed off and, on a minor note, while we have power, phone and internet, we do NOT have cable. In that we are more fortunate than others. Given the temperature outside, we are very, very grateful indeed.
