It's quite strange, yet wondrous to know that calm scenes like this can turn chaotic, turbulent and oh so very destructive. Looking at the devastation lashed to the Jersey Shore by super storm Sandy, it's unsettling to know that placid and serene scenes of summer days at our beaches can turn suddenly to pure destruction. I was watching some video of what the storm of last week did to Plum Island south of us. The island community is reeling from the worst damage sustained in over 50 years. There is video of a seaside cottage being gobbled up by the water's fury. Over 15 homes along the water's edge are uninhabitable at this point. Point being, that a storm in these parts doesn't need to build up a huge reputation over days leading up to the event to shatter dreams.
Seaside cottages seem so dreamy in the pleasant days of summer, but do storms like this make you rethink your dreams of paradise?
Me? I never planned to live in Eden anyway.
