Superstorm Sandy has finally ran out of steam, but the damage she caused will linger for weeks to months. It seems New York and New Jersey were some of the hardest states hit. Interestingly enough, the damage never got truly bad in Maryland, at least not in my area. Of course, Ocean City Maryland was hit very bad, and some say it will never be the same. My memories of that place are very fond, and I hope that it is not as bad as I’ve heard, or at least that the damage could be fixed. We’ll see what happens!
We hope that all of our customers and visitors are okay, and since most people come to us from Maryland, I’m confident in that. Of course, many people come to the East Coast Airsoft store from Virginia and Pennsylvania, and Virginia at least was also fairly badly hit. More news of Sandy’s destruction will surely be released in the near future, but hopefully it will not be anything too bad. It was greatly unfortunate that over 100 people were killed by Sandy, but it could have been worse.
Climate scientists are saying they are not surprised by this, and that Sandy was a result of climate change. I am not surprised by that, and it makes sense that as we continue to pollute this world with billions of tons of carbon dioxide, methane, and sulfur emissions, there would be consequences. If Sandy is only the beginning of what’s to come, then we have a lot to prepare for. As an optimist, I am confident that we will be able to prevent future storms like this eventually with the power of technology and environmental innovations. The power of humanity is unlimited, and once we can move past the petty differences that divide people all too deeply, we will start to see a new, brighter future.
