What's the Nicest Thing Someone Did for You During the Storm?

If someone went out of their way for you before, after, or during the storm, tell us about them.

As Thanksgiving approaches, it's a good time to take notice of the kind things we do for one another. With Superstorm Sandy having just occurred a few weeks ago, we were thinking about all the ways that neighbors have been helping neighbors, both near and far.

There were heroes right here in Long Beach.

Do you have a story to share about something kind someone did for you? For your family member? For your friend? You don't necessarily have to use names — though we encourage you to recognize that special person. They deserve it, right? Share your stories in the comments below.

My wonderful 91 year old Mother in Law took us in after 3 days of no power here in Levittown...my Husband, myself, our Son and Daughter in Law and two dogs. Our power returned the next day, but our Son and Daughter in Law were not able to return to their home in Long Beach, and still may be displaced for many months. My MIL has graciously offered her home to them for as long as they need since she lives closest to where they work. She is truly an angel, and she looks on this as being able to spend much more quality time with her Grandkids! Love her!!
