Article Photos: Sandy brings economic booms, busts to Northeast 2/8

In this Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012 photo, Bob Manere, owner of the Seagrape Cafe clears prepares a refrigerator to be restocked in his bar in hopes or reopening after Superstorm Sandy's floodwaters caused a quarter million dollars in damage in October in Fairfield, Conn.  The national economy is expected to absorb the blow from Sandy with little long-term damage, but in the short term, at least, Sandy is introducing dramatic booms and busts across the Northeast. The effects vary widely across industries, bringing banner years for some while pushing others toward economic ruin. (AP Photo/Jessica Hill)
