We have all seen the devastation wreaked by hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey. It's painful to watch my home state suffer so, but this is almost too tragic to comprehend:
Floodwaters from the massive hurricane smashed a New Jersey liquor distributor, causing tens of millions of dollars in damage to its supply of top-shelf alcohol, the company said. Yesterday, a sad mix of liquor and slush puddled on the ground outside Fedway Associates Inc.’s warehouse in Kearny — where the smell of red wine hung in the air as workers piled boxes and broken glass into an 8-foot-tall mountain.
First a hurricane, then a snowstorm, now a liquor shortage. I don't know if anybody can be expected to be THAT resilient.
