Excellent photo journalism, thank you! Noticing the masks on the faces mold has set in. I would not keep one thing. Thanks so much for the updates Berkeley NJ Patch.

Sandra- so true, one can not count on being able to keep ANYTHING on the ground floor of any house if it may have even been *touched* by that water.... The mold started growing within just a couple of days of the water receding. I know of someone who actually died as a result of a severe asthma attack they had while cleaning out their home in Mystic Island. She was 25 yrs old- died on the way to the hospital. So very sad. Some people have no idea just how bad (and dangerous) these situations can be. I have family and friends in the process of cleaning out their homes-- very little is salvageable from single story homes or from ground floors.

Can anyone tell me how the Aztec Motel has held up??
Sandra November 16, 2012 at 12:50 AM
Aztec Motel was reported as lost that I read when the storm ended.

My prayers for everyone who has lost so much of their lives/possessions/property in this terrible storm. Other than that, I hope all of the crappy motels are gone and they can rebuild with a little more class.

I agree Nancy. I spent so much time growing up and going to Seaside in the summers. But then the town really went down hill so no more visits or vacations there. Here's your chance to rebuild a create a nice town.

Here's our chance to allow mother nature to reclaim the barrier island... especially the parts of the island that are less than a mile wide (and that might be all of it, I don't know). IMO residents who are being compensated through insurance/flood insurance and/or any other way should take their $$ and rebuild on the mainland somewhere. Might be best if the barrier island was left to huge Hotel and or Casino conglomerates that can afford to build resort hotels and summer attractions, toward the bay side, to bring in the $$ for each barrier island town, while leaving the ocean side beaches as just that- beautiful, wide, public access beaches, like in California and other areas. It can be done....

i for one don't want to pay for a beach replenishment and than not be able to use it. if those rich people want a private beach they should pay for replenishment themselves. after all, isn't it their claim that its private property.

Are you also willing to pay for insurance and life guards?I pay 1000 a year for the use of our beach.
lisa November 19, 2012 at 04:12 AM
if everyone had access to a free beach you wouldn't have to complain about how much you pay. the beach should be for everyones enjoyment, not just a privleged few.
Sandra November 19, 2012 at 03:25 PM
I know a town where the lifeguards were paid even when the beach was closed due to poor water quality. And the beach passes turned into a waste to buy. Badge checkers still were paid even with the red flag up. Yeah they were paid and the town paid them <i>and</i> the insurance. So lets just not put the cart before the horse and clean it up first and then worry about who pays for what. jmo

Chinese parents send their children http://www.coachoutletonlinebd.com/ Coach Outlet Online to private U.S. high schools as a strategic decision to strengthen their candidacy for elite U.S. universities, http://www.guccibeltsoutletstores.net/ Gucci Belt Lin said. A growing number also want their children to lead happier lives rather than have them consumed by http://www.coachoutletonlinewo.com/ Coach Factory Outlet preparing for the gaokao in China the one-time, high-stakes national university entrance examination that http://www.guccibeltsoutletstores.net/ Gucci Belts is the sole determinant of admission.The factors driving mainland Chinese to study in the United States come into http://www.coachfactoryoutletpo.com/ Coach Factory Outlet play much earlier, Lin said, noting an influx of foreign Chinese students into private U.S. secondary http://www.coachoutletonlinefc.org/ Coach Outlet Online schools, starting around 2005.The goal of education in mainland China is to prepare you to take the gaokao. http://www.coachoutletwr.com/ Coach Online Outlet Everything else is secondary. In China, you would put the gaokao in the center.whereas...in American education, http://www.coachoutletloa.com/ Coach Factory Online you put the student in the center, and everything else serves the best interests of the student.
