Hurricane Ida was so mean to New Jersey. I don't think anyone was prepared for the devastation it caused.

When I drove to work that morning, it took me an hour because of roads that were closed due to flooding. It has NEVER taken me that long to get to the radio station from my house, even in a snowstorm.

I know what those affected by Hurricane Ida are feeling because our family went through similar devastation during Hurricane Sandy. My Dad's house is waterfront and our entire downstairs was destroyed.

We've rebuilt our house since then, but the entire process was just absolutely devastating. Some people at the Jersey Shore still haven't rebuilt their homes and some have just abandoned them.

It's horrible to see such devastation all over our state. I keep hoping and praying that people can rebuild.
