Hope everyone made it through alright. Up in the Jerz we got harsh harsh winds (inland up near Trenton) and record high tides with flooding. The Jersey Shore no longer exists I'm pretty sure. For all of those who will make a lame joke right now, it's really a shame. I have been vacationing there since I was a little kid (not Sleazeside though) and all of the things that I grew up loving down there are pretty much destroyed or washed out to sea. My condolences to all of those who are effected by this terrible storm. I lucked out and didn't lose power, internet, phone or any property damage. I consider myself and the family heavily blessed by these facts as many friends of mine have at the very least lost power or have some damage. I know folks in South Jersey who also lost quite a bit.Anything I can do to help anybody out on here, please let me know. My thoughts and prayers are with you all!
Breezy Point in Queens, yes. Western end of the Rockaway Peninsula (below Coney Island on a map).
FOR FELLOW FEDS: THIS APPLIES TO TOMORROW:Applies to: Wednesday, October 31, 2012 Federal agencies in the Washington, DC, area are OPEN and employees have the OPTION for UNSCHEDULED LEAVE OR UNSCHEDULED TELEWORK.
I do hate it less in cooler weather when I can have the windows shut. It does keep the refrigerator cold, run the boiler, run the well pump, and run the TV/cable/internet equipment.
Definitely a 1st world problem, keeping the refrigerator running in cold weather.
I hope the shore isn't as far gone as you describe. I spent youthful vacations on LBI and loved them. There's something special about the Jersey Shore. Asbury Park and Seaside Heights were okay back then, too.
Been to Rockaway and Far Rockaway. Lot's of folks think that's Brooklyn or LI (non-NYC).PS Story on CNN now.
Where was that pic taken?
I believe it may be a subway station.
Oh definitely, just wondering the locale. Didn't figure it was secret CIA headquarters or the gates of hell or anything like that.
The picture was in the Boston Globe.
I got that the first time, but living in DC we publish pics from all over, so figured the BG would be the same. Is it indeed in Boston?
