TRAPPE, Md. – Hurricane Sandy's wrath brought T.L. Morris Seafood in Trappe to its knees. In late October, owner Josh Parker described what it was like to watch his business crumble before his eyes.

"It's pretty disheartening. We were over by the ferry boat and the wind just picked the shed up and pushed it right into the river and we watched it float toward the bridge and it just disappeared," Parker told WBOC back on Oct. 29. 

Now four months later, the rebuilding process is in full swing, which is music to the ears of many T.L. Morris customers.

"They steam them right on sight in the crab pots and by the time you get there, they are just fresh," said Tish Stansbury of Cambridge.

"Every Fourth of July we get our crabs over there," said Fred Beveridge of Cambridge.

Beveridge said it was hard to see the damage T.L. Morris sustained because of Sandy.

"It's sad to see everything collapsed over there. It's just a piece of history," Beveridge said. 

Stansbury is among many who are anxiously awaiting T.L. Morris' reopening and is glad to see the business claw its way back.

"I am glad to see them rebuilding," she said. "Maybe it will be better and bigger, but it was just sad to see somebody lose their business, especially a small business owner."

For now, T.L. Morris will rebuild piece by piece and hopes to open its doors to customers by the time the crabbing season begins in April.
