NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- It's hard to believe that it's been a month since my post-Hurricane Sandy column ran. I'm still grateful to my editors at the Street.com for publishing this piece, which was personal in nature and a vast departure from my typical value-related drivel. After experiencing some of the devastation first-hand, it's all I could muster. And I still count us as among the fortunate.It's an ongoing story, too, as the cleanup continues and I still count us as among the fortunate. We've personally ripped out much of the downstairs of our little cottage, carpets, padding drywall, insulation. We've thrown away most of the contents: beds, clothing, furniture, appliances.
