A year ago, the lights were still out for some in the village, extinguished by the fury of Hurricane Sandy. Over 100,000 Rockland County households lost power, and here in Nyack, there was one storm-related fatality. Today, there are 11 families from the Claremont Apartments that are still homeless. Are we ready for another super storm? What if a natural disaster occurs during a congressional hissy fit? Comparing what I posted then and what we know now, let’s examine what Hurricane Sandy taught us and what we learned about ourselves during her violent arrival and bitter aftermath.
