The first picture is of the Mantoloking bridge. That's about ten minutes from here. This storm totally devasted our beautiful Jersey Shore. Many of us around here were without power for a week or more. We were the lucky ones, we still have a roof over our heads. It took some time before I could bring myself to look at any pictures of the destruction. Places such as Seaside Heights, (pre-trashy MTV shows), where my parents took my brother and I as children, were just wiped out. The roller coaster was in the water. We will rebuild, though.
