In A Perfect Storm,  Sebastian Junger writes “There are houses in Gloucester where grooves have been worn into the floorboards by women pacing past an upstairs window, looking out to sea.”  Today a lot of people are wearing out keyboards searching for news on El Faro.  Others are out in the still stormy aftermath of the hurricane, looking for contact.  Wishes and prayers and hopes swirl through the air as well.
