Were You Helped During the Storm? Say Thank You on Patch

Recognize that friend, family or stranger that helped you during or after the Oct. 29 storm.

We heard a lot of stories this week about neighbors helping neighbors this week.

Did someone let you crash on their couch? Cook you a warm meal? Take care of your dog? Shovel you out? Let you watch your favorite TV show while your cable was out? Give you a ride?

We know you've probably thanked them in person, but here's your chance to thank them again, for the community to see.

I heard stories of town employees sleeping for just a few scant hours over the weekend in order to keep warming shelters open for stranded train passengers and seniors.

I've heard stories of neighbors lending extra parts to others so they could run their generators, friends welcoming others into their homes and families cooking for relatives who needed a hot meal.

Local businesses, municiplities and politicans did what they could to help as well. Fire departments lit dark streets with engine lights. Volunteers helped to run warming centers. Daisy Hill Farm and the Bedford Hills Neighborhood Association donated food and funds.

Who helped you during the storm?

Leave your thank you in the comments below.

I'll go first—thanks to the Sanz family for hosting my family for a few nights! And to all Patch readers who helped provide information all week about trouble spots in town and to town officials for being so responsive with community information to post on Patch.

My family would like to thank the Katonah Fire Department, Town of Bedford staff, especially Recreation and Parks and DPW in helping get our town and streets up and running as quickly as possible and providing a safe and warm place to warm up and charge up after the storm. They really made a difference. The Hanley Family.

Thank you to the Bedford Fire Department, my friends with power, who provided hot, home-cooked meals, hot showers and warm beds. Thank you especially to a woman named Cynthia in Pound Ridge, who found my lost doggie walking along the road, shaking, covered with icicles almost 2 hours later! (He is fine :) now) I would like to thank NYSEG- BUT, I am still without power today- day 7! I am being very patient and understanding!

I would especially like to thank the warm and friendly folks at the townhouse at Pound Ridge. Not only did they supply dry ice, bottled water, potable water; hot soup, bread and butter, cots and even a shower; they went the extra mile which makes Pound Ridge such a wonderful place to live, they sent a Police Officer and Town officials to see if we were all right. Then the town sent a cup of hot soup along with a muffin. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the wonderful people who work for our town. You are all so very special and we appreciate all you did and continue to do.
