Default Hurricane Sandy casualty

I'm sure everyone has seen/heard about the devastation the storm caused. In my town a ton of people lost everything on their first floors. The piles of trash outside peoples' homes are really heart breaking. They're tossing everything...even stuff that seems to be ok.

Got a call that this little beauty was waiting for it's destiny at the dump. Well, she's safe and sound at my house now

That's a great save!

Angels would have cried if that thing wound up in a landfill.

Why in the world would someone toss that?!?! She looks to be in great shape. Nice score, at least something positive came out of that nasty storm.

Insurance will pay them full retail for it. I imagine a lot of people are dumping things they don't use and dinging their insurance companies' replacement coverage.
