    Wow, massive spreading fire on the boardwalk. Started at Kohrs Ice Cream Stand. There was a live feed on nj.com, but stopped working for me.

    Seaside is also ground zero for flammable hair products. This won't end good.

    Seaside was essentially coated in Guido hair product overspray, so the fire spread fast.

    The owner of the whole south end is a dicey dude I've heard. He wanted condos after sandy and said he'd never rebuild. He was supposedly wrangled by the town into rebuilding...Fire starts at southern end of boardwalk on hard south wind. Right after summer season ends Hmmmm

    Guidos aside, there are a lot of good local beach oriented people who put a lot of work into rebuilding after Sandy. They just lost it all. If you've never put a quarter down on a boardwalk game, or made out with a chick under the boardwalk as a kid after having a good sausage and peppers and a kohrs orange drink I feel sorry for you. There was nothing like seaside boardwalk as a kid. It was a lot more than a stupid TV show about a bunch of Guido bennnies. If you missed it, it's too late.

    Yeah, pretty suspect.
    Sniffer, did you realize this is where I live (Seaside Park)? I can say what I want in jest. I think you were kidding though right? I was. I have to kid about it because otherwise I would sink in despair. Like, many I am still trying to normalize my life from Sandy. I never would have thought Sandy would still be affecting my life negatively almost 1 year later. I haven't surfed my home break in a year too. The pier and the waves it held are destroyed. I surfed all over the state since then, but it certainly feels like I haven't surfed at all without being able to surf my beloved pier. They haven't even finished removing the old one from the water. WTF!! Plus the water around both piers is still holding plenty of dangerous debris. Countless people were quietly rushed to the hospital this summer from underwater collisions with remnant debris! You'll never hear about it though, "the shore is open". I lost a decent amount in that storm but my beloved surf spot hurts most.
    Boo hoo boo hoo hoo, cry fest over.
    Now let's get pitted, yewwww!
    Ps only had to re log in 5 times to post this, good thing I'm smart enough to copy everything I write before SI dumps it. Probably 5 more log ins cuz I added a sentence WTF SI?

    NBC 10 sucks! I'm sure the already tormented residents love chopper 10 hovering over their homes at 630 am. F*cking inconsiderate a**holes.
