A week after hurricane Sandy hit the tri-state area, a nor easter is on it's way. Most of the power has been restored but it's being threatened once again. All the dunes at the shore were washed away last week. Again at high tide the storm surge is a big concern. It's snowing and the winds are expected to reach 60 mph.

I'm heart broken. To see the amusement pier I visited as a child collapsed and in the ocean. The people who's homes washed from their foundation. If they're vacation homes FEMA doesn't cover it? Honestly. What's the difference? Just another way for the government to wiggle their way out of it. Just like the insurance carriers.

The devisation is horrible. Entire communities lost. Many families facing extreme financial hardship. My heart breaks for LBI. Thank goodness the summer season was over and not more people were killed. Hats off to Gov. Christie for ordering mass and mandatory evacuations. Shame on those who didn't comply with prior easements for dune restoration. Rebuilding is long way off. More coastal errosion yet to come.
