It's a while since I posted a blog item here - but with Podshock back and Louis regaining his podcasting logs - I thought I would post this link on the GE page

Superstorm Sandy: US marks one year anniversary

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-24721439

The US is marking one year since Superstorm Sandy hit the US east coast, killing at least 117 people.

Sandy was the most destructive storm in the US since Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

On Monday, historical immigration landmark Ellis Island reopened .....

 

Regards and Best Wishes to Louis, daveac

 

Thanks for sharing the link to that article and video. So much has changed for so many people with the coming of Superstorm Sandy. So many people are still struggling today. Although it took me longer than I would had liked, I was finally able to move back into my place a couple of months ago. I have a sister who still is unable to move back into her house. Perhaps in another 2 or 3 months. 

Tonight I drove through roads and areas that were underwater one year ago with the storm. It's great seeing the progress that has been made in the past year, but at the same time, there are reminders. Usually after a hurricane, you will see empty spots where trees once stood, perhaps some new fences and roofs too. This time driving through such areas you see holes where homes once stood. Boarded businesses that were once thriving establishments. Landmarks missing. 

Though to put it in better prespective. The sister I mentioned earlier has a good friend who lost her son to this storm. Yes, we are still recovering. It's a long road ahead, but I am thankful for the progress that has been made and while it may be some time before we can completely put this behind us (if ever), it is good to moving forward with life.
