Sandy She Was

Hurricane Sandy was a very big, dangerous, unbelievable storm. Thankfully, Cape Cod did not take a direct hit like New Jersey or we would be the nightly news. The storm here was more exciting than something to fear. We went out the day before, the morning of, the day of at high tide and the next day. We had 2 "snow" days, maybe they should be called "storm days", off of school. We stayed inside during the peak, but were part of a large crowd of storm chasers during the rest. The gusts were definitely over 70mph and you could lean right into them. We didn't get the rain, which was a blessing. Here are a couple pictures of the before and after...




We had a little fun with the wind...


This was 3 hours before high tide with the water crashing into the parking lot (haha, the girls got a little wet on this one).


One of the marinas whose parking lot and building spent days of high tides, flooded.


Say a prayer for all those who were affected so much more adversely than us. The pictures coming out of NYC and New Jersey are indescribable. You can text 90999 and donate $10 to the Red Cross.

Great photos. You're right, we were very lucky with this storm. I think Irene was worse. We didn't get half the calls we got during that storm at the firehouse. Looking at the photos from NY and NJ--it makes us even more grateful!
