    If you say you only lost power for 9 days then I do u t anything bad really happened to you compared to people not having power or not being able to live in there home for 1-2 years after the storm

    im actually 9 and a half.

    do u people know why the power was out for so long?it was actually the smartest thing to do if u have common sense,breezy point did not.when a storm or flooding occurs,and u don't shut the power down from the main grid,u are now at risk of blowing up every house in that town.my old town in Carteret 3 houses blew up and there nowhere close to the beaches.it took the power companies so many days,depending on where u live and how big ur town is.

    ok floodings gone,streets cleaned up.u have abandoned houses that havnt been attained for that are still possibly flooded.a lot of gas lines broke.they flip that switch without going to every single door and inspecting it,they flip that switch,one home is still flooded,electrical spark + gas = booooom.that's how they did it in my town,Alabama electric were the brave souls he fixed my town,working 13days straight.jcpl did nothing as usual.

    lol it wasn't no freak storm.it was a hurricane.just the same as if a tornado swept through and wiped out the whole community,mother nature always wins.funny thing is one of the republican senators from the Midwest denied funding for sandy victims saying it was a regional tragedy that it didn't affect them,then 2 months later tornados took out his town and he asked for aid

    hey everybodys different.i live close to the water,some people live on the water.theres plenty of houses,businesses that will never come back.my favorite surf shop in sea brights closed down for good,and I actually rented a house on the street to the left of islandstyle,and if I was there I would've been demolished.u people just finger pick my words,i never said sandy was nothing that it wasn't devastating,i was just saying compared to others it wasn't that bad.i live in a small town its only 1 square mile and the water was gone after 2 days and we waited an additional 7 days to get power.

    I live off rt 36.i needed gas,i believe it was Thursday.monmouth county I am in.i hopped in my pick up driving down the highway til I could find gas.do u know where I finally got gas on?linden on rt1&9(really far),thats how far I had to drive just to get gas,plus u had to wait in a 2 hr line,which wasn't that bad compared to some of the other stations.I have a 4 gas stations in a 1 mile radius on the highway near me that were all shut down.

    The power was not shut down in advance due to common sense. Power lines were knocked down and it rook time to repair them. It didn't help that there was a Nor'Easter a few days later.

    Something I've thought is how much better Sandy would have been in, say, August. The short days and cold weather really made digging out much harder, and made being without power or gas so much more unbearable. It seems like all of my immediate post-storm memories involve being soaking wet, covered in mud, and shivering.

    Dudes you remember all the greenish lights in the sky while the storm was passing over- all the transformers blowing up.

    Crazy times- and I agree with the cold... And the snow a few days after! Crazy storm!

    But why are we talking about all this- I thought this thread was about Belmar at 23ft

    I lived on 80s era kerosene heaters and a generator for almost 3 weeks. Kerosene was not easy to find. I siphoned gas out of my boat to run the generator. My gas water heater actualy worked after being submerged. Got 6 months out of it before it died.

    dude,did u know u just posted a picture of my town?seriously,not joking.yes it was bad,really bad,but it wasn't that bad,bad enough to be bad,but not as bad as others.like I said Christie and Obama came to my neighborhood I was in one of the worst hit areas,but there was plenty more that got it worse.staten island was pretty bad.

    ok heres my little sandy story.i was playing black ops on ps3 around 3 pm and the power went out.it was funny talking on the headset people were like bs ur not in the impact zone.then the power went out,for almost 2 weeks.my family in florida thought we died.it was all fun and games til 845pm when the water came in.i told my family it wasn't going to be nothing,9pm proved me wrong.i was scared for a little bit...so for the record lol,yes it was bad,baddest in the northeast in the past 2 decades,but it wasn't the worst hurricane of all time

    ryan strucks a good photographer,not denying him his creds,but there were people driving around my town taking pics,I don't even know how they got into the town,and that shyt pisses people off.people just lost everything,no power,no heat,only tap water,and theres people driving around in brand new cars(out of towners) and theres some d1kheads just driving by taking pics of peoples houses,people cleaning up.nobody wanted to help,just douchecanoes with 800$ cameras trying to get a pic published in the newspaper or magazine.i lost all 3 of my cars,everyone in the house so I walked around town every day for about a month and a half before fema cut the check and I was able to buy a new car and fix my house.thank you fema,fuk the rest of u

    It was very annoying watching cars go by taking pics while we piled everything we own in the street...
    Month and a half for the FEMA check is pretty good.

    I totally agree- i remember that day after the storm... Felt like I was crawling out of a dark hole. I was totally aw struck at the deviation. It didn't really hit me till later at how bad the whole situation really was.

    I do remember at one point early on- pulling out my cell with the intent on taking pictures of the destruction, specially some of the houses. Then I noticed some people outside trying to clean up. Then it hit me- ppl here list everything... I couldn't take a picture of that. So I rolled up my sleeves and there began me helping with the cleanup and rebuilding afterwords.

    As much as I joke about Belmar, some of my saddest memories are driving around that town and helping ppl pump out their basements. I had a gas trash pump that I was able to borrow and could empty a basement in an hour or so. So sad to see ol Belmar in such a wreck.

    This is the two year anniversary - Gov Christie actually made an appearance in Belmar!!! It was a bummer that there was a heckler there giving him a hard time. I understand the guys point... But come on... Seriously? P
