Wassail! Wassail!

A very Merry Christmas  to all of our friends and family.  May your days be merry and bright as Bing would  sing.  And yes Virginia we did have a white Christmas.  Always a time to reflect and look for the good.  At Home Again we close a chapter and welcome a new year.  Peace will always be in our thoughts.

This past weekend the family celebrated a birthday near the Jersey Shore.  A time to fondly look back coupled with the excitement of the holiday and future hopes.  Unfortunately, the ravage of hurricane Sandy still haunted these communities.  Monmouth Beach, Sea Bright, parts of Rumson to name a few.  We drove down Ocean Ave where most was cleaned up but still a good reminder of the devastation.  There are still homes and businesses without heat and lights.

Storm Surge

These million dollar homes right on the waters edge will not see their owners.  They are now condemned. 
A lot of boats ended up in the backyards or in the home!

These will be condemned like so many others.

The Birthday Boy

My nephew Joseph and his lovely wife had a close call at their home in Monmouth Beach.  No major water damage and living on a generator for two weeks.
