Kids have a way of mangling our language in such an eloquent way. My youngest did in the aftermath of Katrina, calling a "heartache" a "hardache." And, indeed, as I wrote then...it was.
The ache is just as hard for our friends in New York, New Jersey and other destinations (like the Mississippi Gulf Coast then) that haven't gotten the media attention they should...but have been hit just as hard.
This time lapse video shows Sandy's impact on New York City from a single angle. You know the lights will go out...but, it's still disturbing to see when they do.
Time to rebuild...and we know you will.
