And if you've ever been to the Northeast, you would see that there are MANY communities that are practically right on the beach and there are a lot of small historical fishing villages too.

    Since I know how nit-picky some of you can be (), I decided to clarify that YES I know that New Jersey isn't a part of New England. I know the way I typed the above it kind of sounds like that. Sometimes I have trouble transferring my thoughts into words.

    I thought we (New England) annexed NJ back in the 80s? I joke...

    What would both events have in common?

    -inability for civilian travel, or at least greatly inhibited

    -lack of basic provisions: food, water and sanitation

    -severely inhibited travel by EMS, law enforcement, FEMA, etc.

    The only real difference I'm seeing is the ambient temperature.
    FL is not known for having a lot of basements like the Northeast. People apparently took shelter in their basements from the winds without anticipating the massive flooding that trapped them there. Also, the NE urban areas have just woefully inadequate infrastructure to deal with that sort of massive flooding IMHO.

    The Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in Ocean City, NJ - Des Plaines, IL Patch

    NJ is never gonna be the same. Ocean City has no beaches anymore.

    It only feels that way now, the beaches will return, look for the old Christmas tree collection
    program this winter.
    They stake out piles of old Christmas trees to catch the sand and build the dunes.
    From seeing Galveston, it takes about 3 years to get it all back. The down side is if your beach
    blocks the flow of sand, other beaches get smaller.

    Well, a foot isn't that much but it depends on the kind. Heavy, watery snow is nasty, fluffy snow is a joy.

    Not much and a joy as long as your home is heated, warm, and functioning normally.

    A whole 'nother kind of hell if you have no electricity, windows blown out, holes in your roof, no hot water.......or worse.

    Some areas from Ocean City, Maryland to Fire Island, NY hit by storm.
