Old age? What is that? I have heard the expression but can't seem to remember...uh, wait...what were we talking about?

This link has a lot of photos of New Jersey's Ortley Beach after Sandy. Many residents did not want the dunes that could have protected some of the homes because it would kill the view for them, one of the most important draws to the area. Still, returning home after Sandy and finding your home gone...that must have been some view in itself.

Scroll down the web site and catch the video of some of the unfortunate residents of Ortley Beach. Sandy is still in their lives every day. It is beginning to look like the cost of trying to restore these type barrier island communities after a hurricane, at least with tax dollars, is becoming a real struggle. It's hard to believe that these areas can disappear until you see the aftermath of a big storm like Sandy, where large homes are gone...just scattered all over the area or washed away. If people can't rebuild, then the area eventually just dries up, I guess. I still remember the distructive photos of Buras, Louisiana, where I lived briefly as a kid...very scary. As memories of these disasters begin to dull, people come back and rebuild...but the building codes are likely to be much more strict. It seems at least we do learn from these tragic events.

This link tells some of what had to be done before these folks could finally get back in their homes. Talk about stress...hurricanes can have a lasting impact on stress in people's lives.

Investing in hurricane shutters is a major expense. This article discusses the DIY approach. While DIY is not an option for most of us, people located near the coastline may find this type information worth reading.
