Am I suppose to write something about Hurricane Sandy?

Greek God PictureI’m hearing how our city is considering an adaption of House Sacrifice, a ritual that was used to prevent flooding in ancient times. Look for this resolution on the next City Council agenda.

How does house sacrifice work? Basically every year on the anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, one random house in Long Beach will be flooded by the city. This sacrifice will hopefully appease and nourish the God of Hurricane, thus saving us all from future floods.

In all seriousness, people are still not back in their homes and that totally sucks. Oh and this is happening tonight: Remembering Superstorm Sandy Unity Walk: One Community, One Future

City Hall / Kennedy Plaza
1 W. Chester Street, LBNY 
6:30pm – 7:30pm

The City is inviting you to join with your friends and neighbors on October 29th at 6:30pm in Kennedy Plaza.

Come pick up your free “safeflame” candle and blue ribbon, all joining together as a united community, in a Citywide event, commemorating how we all came together following Superstorm Sandy.

The blue ribbons will symbolize our struggle through the storm, the recovery process and most importantly the journey for those still not back in their homes.

Coffee and hot chocolate will be generously provided by Gentle Brew in the plaza outside City Hall. After a brief ceremony, we will all head to the boardwalk where West End Arts will unveil two of the panels of the “Long Beach Boardwalk Art Project “Home Sweet Home” mural.

This evening is about coming together to talk to neighbors, share stories, and be one community-one future. We hope you will join us.

We stood together as one community two years ago and we will continue to do the same until everyone comes home and the recovery process is complete.
