Although Hurricane Sandy happened many seasons ago there still lies evidence all along the coast of New Jersey. Closest to my home is the quaint town of Ocean Grove. And here the keen observer can see the direct effects of Sandy’s strength on the fishing pier that previously (see the last minutes of the pier here) jutted out into the Atlantic.
These submerged pilings await funds from reluctant government agencies to rebuild the pier and now can only support a stalwart in the town, Ralph. He’s been around for over a decade in one form or another and symbolizes the steadfast theme of many shore towns in New Jersey….
