Superstorm Sandy has locals fixated on TV

Leonard and Marilyn Bailey sat at the Custom House for dinner on Monday night, hoping to focus on their meal, but instead, were completely fixated on the television storm coverage of Hurricane Sandy.

"It's terrible," said Leonard.

The Bailey's are on a vacation from Northern California, staying in Avila Beach at a timeshare home.

Marilyn said, "to see something like this, and we're sitting out on the deck with 85-degrees, it doesn't seem fair."

They said they are thankful they don't have any personal loved ones back east.

She said, "for somebody that has relatives, family there, not being able to know what they're doing, how they're doing, you can't get in contact with them, it's just as devastating."

Leonard said each region of the country goes through it's own natural disasters, but something like Sandy, he can't quite fathom.

"I can't imagine being without power for 10 days," said Leonard.

The Bailey's said they're going to continue to watch storm coverage, because it's the only way to stay connected.

Marilyn ended, "we just wish them well, and just be safe."
