In honor of the Sandy recovery efforts.

Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Welcome back, Eastern Seaboard!

Getting over Sandy’s visit is taking a little bit longer than expected. At her worst, she was a fatal force; at her best she was the drunken aunt who staggers through your house smashing crockery and relationships, then sweeps out never to be seen again but entered into legend. It’s a relief to everyone when she’s gone, even though we all do nothing but talk about her for the next five years.

Even though parts of the coastline remain in the dark, power, that marvelous modern metaphor, has been restored to most of the stricken areas. This GIF on Ignorance is Bliss embodies the post-Sandy revival of downtowns north and south. Raise a light and join in the 46,759 waving accolades so far.
