Here, we share a series of essays highlighting personal experiences during mega-storm Sandy. Weather affects all coastal dwellers each year--but beach people remain a resilient crew, no matter how tumultuous the sea. We think you'll be cheered, comforted, and enlightened by their words and their distinct perspectives. We also encourage you to help with the Sandy relief efforts by contributing at redcross.org.
