Thank you to Canada from the States

Since there are alot of Canadians on this board I wanted to send a thankyou to Canada. Hurricane Sandy hit us pretty hard here in the States on the East coast. We were lucky and only lost power for 5 days and my company is shut down until further notice which will really hurt me and my family financially but there are so many people that are completely devastated and my heart goes out to them. Canada sent something like 1500 workers down to the States to help us restore power. I'm sure I speak for most when I say thank you

Re: Thank you to Canada from the States

Yeah, we all heard you guys got hit hard in NJ but also see that people got busy and jumped on it to try and turn it around right away. I was pretty proud to read about the Canadian folks who headed down to help you guys out too.

I hope things start getting back to normal for you soon.

Thanks. Right now fuel is an issue also. It's crazy I've never seen anything like this. Waited 2 hrs on line the other night for gas for my generator after driving for over an hour to find a gas station that had fuel. I feel terrible for the people in south jersey who lost everything.

Ditto from Maryland, not only to Canada but from all of those states to the west and south of us who sent help.

Re: Thank you to Canada from the States

Your welcome and it goes both ways. Back in 1998 when I deployed during the icestorm lots of good people came up from Detroit, Buffalo and many other US towns to lend a hand.

Re: Thank you to Canada from the States

I know that the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) offered a bunch of workers and civil engineers to help NY get their subway up and running again.

We are happy to help. Just the way that we are.
