Not to be hipster about it or anything, but I'm in Florida so we had Sandy before everyone else.
I'm joking, mostly because I wasn't even in town when the rain was here.
Stay safe kids!
I think it's crazy we're feeling (minor) effects here in Chicago! We've got a flood warning along the lake. Sort of weird to come home to a notice from the alderman in my building about flooding and safety—the lake's at the end of my block. Haven't heard if they've closed Lakeshore Drive yet... waves were big, but not too crazy today, supposedly going to be worse tomorrow.
Fingers crossed for east coast folks! My cousin in brooklyn just told me the subways are flooding and will be shut down for maybe a week.
Yes! Transportation in nyc is paralyzed. I was supposed to travel there Monday to teach. Obviously I didn't, but I'm not sure how people living there will get around. I mean, having lived in Manhattan, it's impossible to get around without the subways. Taxis are scarce when it's raining or during times like this.
Here in NC it's been pretty mild actually, just some cold/wet/windy days but nothing crazy (at least that I've heard of). Sandy hit landfall further north, seeing some pretty freaky pictures from NY & NJ. Power outages are being reported from VA up, but some in the more southern areas have been restored already.
I'm in MA, we got a lot of wind and the power knocked out but compared to everyone else we got nothing. Hopefully everyone is ok.
Richmond was supposed to get hit a lot worse that it was. The winds thankfully got downgraded or else we may have lost power. As it is, we were all over prepared, which is way better than not at all I suppose.
We got lucky as well. Never lost power. xo
Finally got internet access back! Here's my update on the post-hurricane sandy events from Long Island. http://myyearattwentysix.wordpress.com/2012/11/03/the-long-island-p...
