Hurricane Sandy had impact beyond the East Coast
As Hurricane Sandy tore through the East Coast, Judy Rusch monitored the storm from her New Richmond home. Rusch's daughter lives in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Rusch, the owner of Sweet Greetings in New Richmond, said a few days after the storm hit, she was reading an article about a Minnesota-based company that was having trouble receiving shipments from the East Coast.
"I thought that was interesting," she said. "You don't think of how it will affect us here."
