Sandy Hoards

I've been on a little bit of a hiatus lately, for a number of reasons, but I hope to resume reasonably regular posting very soon. In the meantime, I'd like to share a few recent news articles involving hoarding in my old home state of New Jersey, particularly in the context of last year's extremely damaging tropical storm, Sandy.

The Daily Record:
USA Today:
While I'll quibble with the headline characterizations of hoarding as an "epidemic" or as a "trend," the reporter, Lorraine Ash, did a pretty good job addressing the subject. Importantly, all of the articles include quotes from a few children of hoarders, including ChildrenOfHoarders.com spokesperson, Elizabeth Nelson. I particularly recommend the April 8th Daily Record article, which focuses on family impact.
