comin out of the dark
I'm somewhat embarrassed to say that its not the first time I've made that gloria estefan reference in a blog post title.
So many of you have gotten in touch to check in on us as - those of you who don't know Saipua is based in red hook, one of the neighborhoods hit hardest by the hurricane. Eric, Nea and I fled to the farm Sunday night, Deanna and Asheley are both out of harms way. Sadly our studio has taken a serious hit. The girls went out to investigate today and found a watery oil slick, flower buckets and detritus everywhere, our giant dumpster overturned inside. It's a truly devastating mess, but all in all rather minor compared to the businesses I know that have lost thousands of dollars in inventory, equipment, etc.
At the farm we sustained high winds. Yesterday morning everything was intact for the most part, even our streamer poles. We spent the day shoveling horse shit onto the garden.
Hope all of you and yours are safe. Thank you for all your calls and emails - it makes me feel really good to know your thinking about us.
