You could not get me to buy waterfront property for love nor money, as much as I would appreciate it when things were good. Sooner or later, a nasty storm will hit. And nowadays, sooner seems to be the rule. Is your wife (sorry, I totally forget what your acronym stands for) still as thrilled about living where you do? If not, you might consider selling in a couple of years, when people have forgotten Sandy and real estate prices have risen again. I'm sure selling now would be a very bad idea financially.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
