Hurricane Sandy - Day 1

Well it has certainly lived up to its name as a hurricane. Sandy has been a force to be reckoned with along the east coast, with rains and winds slowly picking up since about 10:30 this morning. So far I’ve seen many pictures with high crashing waves and reports of power outages all across New England. I lost power around 5pm, so I have nothing better to do than type this from my cell phone. As far as I know, the wind is supposed to die down around 8pm, but that remains to be seen. Then the question of when power will be restored to those affected and whether or not school and work cancellations will continue. As I ponder and watch this storm from the comfort on my own home, stay safe everyone.
