Great Collection of Photos .. Images from Sandy

Must see pics.. don't you  hate that phrase... incredible collection of images...Taking a break from looking through stories as the stories are depressing and I need to do somethings... amazing collection of images.. random from all over the affected area from one of my favorite below but on top.

Thank you for reading. Thank God for my kids being okay.. and May God Bless Us ALL and give us the strength to move forward, helping each other rebuild or move on.. to get through the rebuilding process.

Life does go on... and survivors survive and keep going... one step at a time, one dollar donated at a time, one friend at a time helping each other.

Give charity, do good deeds and help another to make this world a better place..

Besos Bobbi
Ps Look carefully at the children's rides...they are way deep in sand.. you have to look closely at some of these pictures..

NY Slowly Returning to Life

People in the coastal corridor battered by superstorm Sandy took the first cautious steps Wednesday to reclaim routines upended by the disaster, even as rescuers combed neighborhoods strewn with debris and scarred by floods and fire.

As New York began its second day after the megastorm, MayorMichael Bloomberg rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange which was shut for two days by Hurricane Sandy and commuters noticed an uptick in traffic and a small sign of normalcy: people waiting at bus stops.

Still, it is becoming clear that restoring the region to its ordinarily frenetic pace could take days - and that rebuilding the hardest-hit communities and the transportation networks that link them together could take considerably longer.

Millions of people remain in the dark in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut after super storm Sandy roared through the region.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that more than 2 million New Yorkers were in the dark and more than 2 million utility customers were in the dark in New Jersey.

Utility companies are warning of potential outages lasting seven days or more. They say it may take until Wednesday before their crews can make a full assessment of the damage.

Travelers remain stranded, as John F. Kennedy International and Newark Liberty International airports, two of the three main flying hubs for the busy New York City area, reopened on Wednesday morning with limited service. LaGuardia Airport remains closed.

Public schools in New York remain closed Wednesday, however Crown Heights schools are back to normal, with all schools opening on Wednesday at regular time.

“We will get through the days ahead by doing what we always do in tough times - by standing together, shoulder to shoulder, ready to help a neighbor, comfort a stranger and get the city we love back on its feet,” Mayor Bloomberg said.

Video: The NYPD has released video of rooftop rescues on Staten Island of residents who were trapped due to rising waters. In all, five adults and one child were removed to safety.
