In this Jan. 27, 2013 photo, Devon Lawrence poses for a picture in his kitchen, which is currently heated by a kerosene heater and his stove top, in the Far Rockaway neighborhood of New York. Lawrence hasn't had working heat since Superstorm Sandy's floodwaters destroyed the oil burner in the basement. Three months after Sandy struck, thousands of storm victims in New York and New Jersey are stuck in limbo. Waiting for the heat to come on, for insurance money to come through, for loans to be approved. Waiting, in a broader sense, for their upended lives to get back to normal.  (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)
