Interview Summary

Bulvid describes why she chose the house she owns and says that she was originally from Florida but then moved to Secaucus and later to Port Monmouth. Bulvid describes her Port Monmouth neighborhood and her appreciation for those residents in it. She also talks about the school system which she feels is pretty good and gives her opinion on the television show "Jersey Shore". Bulvid talks about how her husband, who was a carpenter at the time, was able to pick up a generator for their household before the storm hit. Also, she describes the availability in grocery stores and that her husband was prepared with gas. Bulvid describes being able to hear things splash around, clank, and bump into each other in her basement because of the amount of water in there. She also tells about having all of her family end up going to the top floor which was prepared with a blow-up kayak and life vests just in case they had to evacuate their house. Bulvid describes that she cooked whatever was in her freezer at the time and her neighbor helped her with eggs her chickens were laying. She also tells that their power was out until the day the kids were able to get back to school. Bulvid talks about her experience with filing for FEMA. She also reveals that there were four arrests on her block after the storm. Bulvid believes the storm should have been covered more by the media and there should have been more help. She also believes the legacy of the storm is the destroyed Jersey Shore and how they rebuilt the boardwalk.
