NY Sandy story

Postby Slack Tide » Sun Jan 13, 2013 4:58 pm

I live on the south shore of Long Island and while I incurred minimal damage from the storm, my community was greatly damaged.
I was talking to a buddy today, sharing war stories about the storm and he tells me this one......

A friend of his lives on canal and his house was destroyed..the guy is a hoarder so he moved up to the attic with his destroyed house below him...Weeks go by with no power or heat and he's had enough, so he grabs his dog and decides to jump in the canal to end it....
Only the canals are only about 5' deep. So this poor guy is stuck in the mud, in the dark, in the cold....alone but for the dog, trying to kill himself....
The dog dies and the guy makes it back to the bulkhead.....
Can you freakin' imagine?

So now the house is screwed, the dog is dead and he is in nuthouse.....
PTSD is real....
"I've been left for dead before but I'll still fight on, don't wait up, leave the light on, I'll be home soon"
