As many of you know, the lagoon in the backyard of the home that I grew up in rose about twenty feet during Hurricane Sandy. Our house (where my sister currently lives) was spared with about $30,000 worth of damage. Her neighbors where not so lucky. It’s unbelievable what a few inches of height in a foundation can do.
But we haven’t heard much about it lately, have we? Yesterdays news, right? Here are pictures that were taken just a few days ago, after the National Guard started letting people back in.
For many, the memory of Sandy is far from gone.
