If you don't go... you'll never know.
Went out Wednesday and Thursday after the storm. Epic conditions and private break since the National Guard was only letting local residents in.
Great to hear some positives. I'm guessing no issues with debris either? Hopefully people will be happy to see people surfing, a glimpse of what life was like before.
Don't surf - use your energy to help out some neighbors in need. There are plenty of people that need it - especially up here in the NY/NJ area.
is it true that non-union workers got turned away???
I would imagine the same goes for NJ and even parts of Ocean City, MD.
Looks like that rumor was not true
i tried to volunteer around monmouth county and they said they couldn't take anyone at this point. i'd assume it was because of potential liability issues. you can't just throw a bunch of people into a disaster area that are all gung-ho to help - they can easily get themselves hurt or killed.
i've heard conflicting reports and saw some nasty video of local union guys giving the visiting workers a really bad time.
