I was at the station from 4am Monday to 11am Tuesday, so like so many of you, the only concept of what was going on during Sandy was what was being reported.When I finally ventured out, what I saw was unbelievable.

Line up for gas at Wawa in Bayville (Lou Russo, Townsquare Media NJ)

As the winds died down many started to journey out even for just essentials like filling up the gas tank, you could see the look of disbelief on everyone's face. There, of course, is a wide range of levels of the way we were affected by this miserable storm. Those of us on the less affected side should try to count our blessings and for those on the more affected side of things should know that we will all be there for you, to help our neighbors as much as we can.

It is hard to believe that this has happened to the place we all love, and the place the whole world loves. The one thing that comforts me is the spirit of my neighbors on the Jersey shore. I know without a doubt that we are the right people to get back on our feet and rebuild the greatest place on Earth.

We, as neighbors and as your radio station, will be there every step of the way to help as much as we can. Our thoughts are with each of you who are dealing with loss and devastation. We will get through this. I know we will.
