Subject: pool report #10 – marina arrival
Motorcade began rolling from the community center at 4:06 p.m. Potus [I assume you know that reporters use POTUS shorthand for President of the United States] is going to take a tour of the Brigantine marina with Gov. Christie. Then he will deliver remarks which we are told by the TV pooler will air live on NBC (and probably other networks, choose your favorite). Pool will nonetheless supply highlights of them in subsequent reports.
En route there was a lot more sand on the roads. It looked like someone had come through with a plow and pushed it to the side. Sorta looked like snow the way it was piled up. We passed a hotel with its windows blown out. There was a house sitting on its side, 90 degrees from the way it should be.
Yet some houses still had the Halloween decorations in tact. And then there were piers broken in half or worse.
A handful of people waved as the motorcade passed.
Pool arrived at 4:15pm and is running to the marina.
