Hurricane Sandy, Part 2.
Sandy has come through town and my boyfriend and I…and Sammy the Cat, as those of us who saw yesterday’s post are aware…came through it fine. Our house is safe and dry, no water in the basement, no flooding from Buffalo Creek. Yay!
But I am from New Jersey. Most of my family is still in New Jersey. And New Jersey took a beating.
Seaside Heights got pounded. I was in Seaside about a month ago–it was a beautiful day, I wanted pictures–and in retrospect, I’m even more nostalgically glad I went. Because the devastation there is extraordinary, and parts of the boardwalk have been ripped apart.
You can go to the links and look at the pictures yourself. This is a significant and happy portion of my misspent youth, torn apart. I can’t bear to post them. So instead, I’ll post a pre-Sandy retrospective. All photos taken by me, September 8, 2012.
Love and well wishes to everyone out there.
