Working hundreds of feet from the ocean today was very humbling. The golf course is looking better but we still have a lot of debris on the course. The toughest part of the day was not having a close friend and coworker working beside us. He and his family were attending to personal property that was all but ruined by the storm. It is a shame to see what has happened to the coastal region, I can assure you however that the staples of the Westerly coastline will return and will be better than ever before.
The past couple days were the first time I had to deal with a major storm and more than one day without power as a diabetic. Thanks to my wife it went very smoothly, I had all of the supplies I needed and plenty of food and drink. If this was six years ago I'd be in a house by myself and probably low insulin because I would have thought the storm wouldn't be that bad. Luckily that was not the case. I urge everyone living with diabetes or any major disease to always make sure you have extra supplies on hand. You never know what could happen and you never want to be without insulin or any other diabetes supplies.
I hope that everyone has a very safe and happy Halloween but make sure to be in bed early because tomorrow kicks off National Diabetes Month!!!
