John McKean's home in Fairfield was destroyed by the storm.
He has spent so much time cleaning up, all while feeling guilty that home movies and family photographs he was entrusted with were completely wiped away.
But then, a waterlogged video cassette was discovered, and a video lab was able to take that footage and transfer it to DVDs.
"This is again the only pictures now that I have," he said. "Everything else is just completely gone. You can imagine how valuable that is."
McKean says the videos and pictures are irreplaceable, and he's glad to have these family memories back.
