Now comes the hard part!!! The Northeast, especially New York City and the New Jersey shore, will be trying to clean up the mess left by Sandy and get things back to normal, if that is possible. It will take a long time to asses the loss of lives and even longer to get things back to normal, if that is even possible. Winter is coming on and that will greatly increase the problem. Somethings can never be replaced, some building will never be rebuilt, some people will never return; Sandy was a life changing disaster. It seemed very strange to me to have such a huge storm this time of year and form and travel that far north. I would like to see a scientific study of the mechanisms that caused this storm to do what it did. Maybe weatherunderground.com will have some additional information. My wife discovered that site a long time ago and we have found that as far as weather is concerned, it seems to be the best spot to get accurate and up to date information.
The excitement and terror has faded and now depression will set in for many. The extreme amount of work needed to clean up and restore things is mind boggling. Where does one begin and when? Like I said above, now comes the hard part!!! You all have the best day that you can today, you hear?
