After the storm....Sandy

Well it's been a while since I wrote, honestly I haven't been feeling that great.  Hopefully it will pass soon. I did want to check in because here in NYC and on the east coast we have just been hit by a pretty big storm, Sandy.  My husband and I just bought a place in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn this past April. In August there was a little flooding in our ground floor so naturally we were quite worried about this storm.  Everything in my office was lifted off the floor. For the remainder of our ground floor, the guest room and storage room, we had to raise the furniture and anything of value.   It was stressful, every few hours during the storm we were checking the drain to make sure there was no clogging of leaves or back up of water.   Fortunately we lucked out.  Many people were not fortunate.  Lower Manhattan has lost power and almost everything, residential and business below 42nd St in Manhattan is without electricity.  We were lucky.

Here is a photo of the Williamsburg Bridge, one of the bridges that crosses over into Manhattan from Brooklyn.  This photo just captures the magnitude of when the power went out.
