Unbelievable devastation up north for some of my family and friends, especially those near the water. Cars floating near my daughters apt. in Manhattan. My best friend had three feet of water in his house. On a bright note: We had our house for sale for a year. We went to contract June 1, 2012. Closing was scheduled for August 20,2012. My buyer jerked us around for over two months. We closed remotely on Friday. The storm hit Monday night.

Luckily my old house didn't flood but power is still out there, trees are down, boats are in peoples yards. People are waiting at least an hour for gas. All in all it is still a disaster area.

Wifes co-workers are in NJ and they are still without power and probably will be for some time.

All my work colleagues are in northern NJ. They describe a surreal existence that won't get much better with a potential nor'easter on its way. Gas (if you can find it) is limited to $15 after waiting 5 hours in line......

Hello everyone out here.
I have come back to this forum.
I have got to say just before I had left NJ everything was peachy. LOL
Now that I am down here about 3 weeks and this devastation happened. WOW !!!
Is what I have to say since I really left before this hit. My God my mom who is on dialisis lives in Hoboken and it was inundated, my friends that work in LGA airport the airport was inundated, many friends and family I didn't here from wow, I have prayed and keep all my friends family co-workers, just everyone up north so God can do what he is capable of doing, His miracle. Let's all keep all those families and all people in prayer, it was a unexpected devastation. And honestly Mr. Bloomberg WTH!!!!! Stop that crap with the marathon. There is a chaotic catatrophe. Use your resources my friend and stop being a DUMB ASS!!!!
Sorry folks for my rant. I feel that we need to make sure people are safe. I work for a company who keeps the skies safe why can't the mayor and the people in local government keep the people safe. Geez!!!!
Anyways God bless and take care all.

I agree it is a mistake to let the marathon go on as scheduled. Maybe a month from now would be okay but not now. Why can't FEMA get food to the people so they don't have to eat from dumpsters. Private charities seem to be doing a better job:

They are there. Here is an article. You may not want to read it as it does not fit your agenda of politicizing a tragic natural disaster.
