Sandusky didn't miss a beat following the seasonal closure of Cedar Point this weekend. Cars filed in and out while filling this week's most popular waterfront attraction and continue to do so as I type this.
The Jackson Street Pier has always been a favorite of mine to take a walk with the kids, get a photo of a freighter, or hop on a ferry to the islands. But this week there haven't been any freighters, ferries or many people walking on it. The steady flow of traffic has been like a scene out of Field of Dreams, "If you flood it, they will come." The remnants of Hurricane Sandy have made Sandusky Bay look like a smaller version of the Perfect Storm.
I have been down to the pier several times in the past couple days to get photos and video. Today reporter Emil Whitis and I visited the pier to try to talk to a couple people, not easy to do with crashing waves and wind all around us. If anyone can figure out what the woman with three kids says to us, more power to you. Needless to say, we were soaked following the shoot.
