Hurricane Sandy(Oct 30, 2012)

[nggallery id=9 template=carousel images=7]

Some photos of the local aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Managed to escape without any issues and power & internet still on. Some homes around are without power. I got lucky on this one. Rough night of sleeping with major winds/gusts and occasional blue flashes from transformers exploding. Temperatures dropping into 40’s which could be rough for those without power.

Nov 3, 2012 Update РHeaded over to Rodale Fitness Park this afternoon for a short run. Many of the tall timbers that shade the back half of the track were snapped  off. Pretty sad scene.
