THE DAY AFTER SANDY... by isikol THE DAY AFTER SANDY... by isikol
I would like to dedicate this picture to the families of all those who suffered by the Hurricane Sandy...

I had that dream last night that i was Superman...rescuing everyone in the middle of the Hurricane...

it was a fantastic feeling...

even though i live thousands of miles away, i have many friends living in the US and Canada...

my thoughts and prays are with you all!

p.s. i though i should "illustrate" the finale of my "mission"...

hope you like it... :)

Superman is a copyrighted character that belongs to DC

Wonderful work, Isi, if only the recovery from Sandy could have had Superman.

But, communities are coming back, and the real heroes were the First Responders, the fire, police, military and many, many volunteers and service organizations through near superhuman efforts kept the death toll low and brought the the hurt and wounded comfort.

One of the subway tunnels between the south end of Manhattan and Brooklyn is still out of service but should return this fall.  Many of the seaside communities that were devastated have established open beach zones and berms to prevent rebuilding on areas that were affected by the surge.  And it made New York City aware that Global Warming is a real thing and to initiate future planning city based on the fact parts of Manhattan could be underwater.

New Jersey Transit failed to listen to climate experts and instead of moving hundreds of passenger cars and locomotives to higher ground, left them in the low-lying Meadowlands of Secaucus NJ, not to mention their operations computers, with the result that the equipment was exposed to corroding salt waters, putting the entire railroad out of service for many days.  Metro-North, on the other hand, had the wisdom to move as much equipment as possible (including railcars and NY City subway cars) to high ground, and lost less then one day of service.  Expensive lesson for NJ Transit, but at least the Executive in charge finally got booted, and railcar shops in upstate New York are making money from rehabilitating the damaged NJT equipment.  Kind of like the old "when someone hands you a lemon - you make lemonade!" story, good from a bad situation.

I can't believe it's been over a whole year and I still remember that night. It was really scary.

I wonder if Pine Barrens survived Sandy. Cause there's not a lot to report down there.
