Just a year ago, here in the Albany area, we were dealing with the devastation of Hurricane Irene and fortunately for us, our neighbors to the south came up in droves to help us out. Naturally, after Hurricane Sandy ravaged those same people that helped us, we had to return the favor. 

Honestly, even if Hurricane Irene missed us (like Sandy) I know for a fact, we would put on our 'friendly neighbor to the north' hats and quickly head south to help.

It's acts like these that make me proud to call this place home :-)
