Residents of New York and New Jersey who were flooded out by Superstorm Sandy are waiting with dread Wednesday for the second time in two weeks as another, weaker storm heads toward them and threatens to inundate their homes again or simply leave them shivering in the dark for even longer.

The wintery nor'easter storm added misery to thousands of people whose homes were destroyed by superstorm Sandy, which killed 120 people when it smashed ashore on October 29 in the New York-New Jersey area, swallowing entire neighborhoods with rising seawater and blowing homes from their foundations.

I had to go down to New York on Monday and made sure I left Wednesday morning before the latest nightmare blew into a devastated region. I did not have the time to see any of the destruction that took place in New Jersey, Long Island or Breezy Point but I did see line up blocks long for gasoline. Nearly 75 to 80 percent of the gas stations were closed and those that were opened were swarmed by gas starved motorists. New Jersey had gas rationing. I made it back because I bought 2 five gallon jerry cans before I left, and I made sure that I filled them, along with my gas tank, in Pennsylvania before I entered New Jersey. Normal life was really disrupted down there but it seemed everyone was determined to get through that latest havoc Mother Nature has wrought.
