Hurricane Sandy In Pictures

By now I think everyone’s aware of the devastation that Sandy reeked on the Big Apple.  My thoughts and prayers go out to my fellow NYers and I’m beyond grateful that my neighborhood didn’t sustain as much damage.  Sure, I’m cut off from going to my permanent office because the subways are still shut down but I’ll go to one of our smaller sites and work from there tomorrow thru Thursday then maybe for a half day on Friday.  I got video that I need to clean up but in the meantime, here are pictures of my neighborhood before, during and after Sandy.  Honestly, I’m glad for the story my pictures tell since other neighborhoods weren’t as fortunate as mine.

    Glad you’re OK. As for Papa’s fixation, we’ve started small, just a tiny bit outside the line, baby steps. I’m working on learning crochet also, My latest bit is just a little wonky and doesn’t lay flat, but I am improving. Thanks for reading.

      Thanks Lady! 😀

      Boy oh boy, I”m not sure if I could be “cured” then. I don’t think I could colour outside the lines intentionally! 😀

    So happy to hear that you are okay! There are quite a few frightening images and reports on the news. We are blessed to have gotten through the hurricane safely.

      So glad to hear that you guys didn’t get this beat-down from Sandy. The images are horrific and I feel some guilt because where I live is kinda in the middle of everyone. So they got pounded while those neighbourhoods were basically sheltering mine. 😦

    Glad you came through that! Sandy didn’t really do as much damage to my area as was exected. The worst was, of course, near the coasts/beaches. It was downgraded by the time it got to where we live, which was fortunate for us. But, I feel for those that weren’t so fortunate. Can’t be fun looking at that.

      No it’s not. But the adventure of getting to Manhattan today from BK reminds me of how resilient people can be when these things happen.

      Glad you and the family are okay. 🙂

    I’m glad you are okay!

      Thanks Lauren. I’m grateful to be alive and also to have my neighborhood spared.

    Glad your area was spared. Hope the rest of NY is back to normal soon.

    Hurricane Sandy. I’ll elaborate in my own post also.

      Hope your family on SI are fine. Let me know.

      • Spinster October 31, 2012 / 7:36 pm

        They are, thank you. Will shoot you an e-mail, probably tomorrow.

    Good news to hear everything is okay in your part of town. My heart, thoughts, and prayers also goes out to those who have to clean up and rebuild after all the damage. -Nizzy

      Indeed. I thank God for the minimal damage around here. I’m going to take my camera with me today as I try to get to work through other neighborhoods.

      The devastation was really intense and far reaching. In my neck of BK, we feel stranded — no one can get out if we need to use the subway. I feel like I still live in the Tropics. I certainly didn’t anticipate battling hurricanes in NY.

      My admin office took some hits; I’m not even sure if we can get into some of the buildings today, but we’re going to try for the sake of servicing our clients. Sandy really chewed up the Big Apple but I hear some parts of PA are being hit worse! God help us.
