    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.

    Know the Mantaloking area well as we used to go to my aunts house every summer..now its my cousins house and it was flooded out but fortunately he is about a mile on the other side of the bridge so he didnt suffer quite as bad as the houses right on the beach did. Ive traveled that road so many times and admired the beautiful expensive houses and landscapes and they simply are gone now, in some cases nothing left of them, pretty sad to see. Up to Ortley and Seaside more devestation but yeah its going to get rebuilt..jersey tough jersey strong, thats what we do
