    Hopefully ese supplies will go to people who actually need them and not the greedy! When we were out of power/ gas for over 31 days I went to see if I could get candles, batteries and blankets ( had many animals taken in from storm that were left behind ) only to get to front of line and find none left..all taken by ladies in fur coats giggling about selling them off at sale table in street fairs! Really p*ssed me off. We had to spend a fortune eating out daily, take cabs when we could, busses when they finally ran and subways to go eat..spend on candles, batteries, all local storees shut down for quite a while..it was costly! FEMA did not come close to covering what we spent. And to sit and watch these people take, take take and walk back home to their homes with power, and gas was almost more than I could stand! I pray that it does not happen today! If you are not in need stay home and let the supplies go to people who need them.
