Superstorm Sandy: One year later

Bill Ritter's daily take on the news.

It's important to mark anniversaries. Not to live in the past, but to appreciate the present and try to get a handle on the future.

And so we pause, starting tonight, to try to appreciate the present and get a handle on the future, one year after Superstorm Sandy devastated the tri-state. Stronger than the storm may be a great advertising and PR mantra, but the truth is there were and are so many swaths of our area where that simply wasn't true. Nothing destroys like water. And far too many things were destroyed.

Tonight at 11, we head to the Jersey Shore, where folks are still rebuilding. Josh Einiger is on the scene. And Meteorologist Lee Goldberg, who headed our weather team's coverage of the storm last year, tonight looks back at his chilling forecast the night before the storm hit -1 year ago tonight ? and what followed.

We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Meteorologist Lee Goldberg's AccuWeather forecast (a big change in the forecast), and Rob Powers with the night's sports. I hope you can join Sade Baderinwa and me, tonight at 11.

One note: Please join me Tuesday night, Oct. 29, on the 1-year-anniversary of Superstorm Sandy on Spreecast.Com between 8-9 p.m. for a lively discussion of what we've learned and what we still have to learn. I'll also be answering your questions. Try it, it's my first time as well! LINK: READ MORE ABOUT MY SPREECAST
