13WMAZ's Katelyn Heck and Suzanne Lawler are in New Jersey covering the aftermath of superstorm Sandy.
They spoke with residents there about picking up the pieces after the devastating storm passed through the Jersey Shore.
Rafts and canoes are still the only modes of transportation through some Belmar neighborhoods.
Firefighters say at 42,000 gallons every minute, it could still take up to 24 hours to pump the water out of these streets.
Pieces of a boardwalk made their way to a neighborhood four blocks from the beach after Sandy's Halloween tricks that left behind other not-so-sweet treats like flooded homes and torn down powerlines.
Neighbors say their spirits haven't been uprooted.
Generators and other supplies flooded in from across the country, sparking power, lights and a gleam of hope.
Folks along the Jersey Shore say they may have to throw away some of their belongings, but that won't trash their plans to rebuild and move on.
