Hurricane Sandy

Well Sandy came and she kicked the crap out of the area. Sunday started off decently because we really didn't lose power all day. It was Monday that kicked Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey hard. 

What my Sunday consisted of: Hazelnut spread on a bagel and homework...

until we lost power on Monday 
 United Illuminating had to shut the power off to about 54,000 customers in Bridgeport and parts of Trumbull, Fairfield, and Shelton. Their sub-stations (10 in total) were in danger of flooding and the worst wasn't even there yet.

Over the last two days recovery has been slow and Trumbull actually got a lot worse before it got any better. At one point we had 90% of the town out with 50 roads completely blocked.

We got power back today (Wednesday) around 5:30pm and while we were one of the lucky was not an easy few days. It got particularly cold.

My thoughts go out to all of those without power still and those who are far worse than I.

Here are some pictures I took around town:

huge part of a tree before our mall

split in half

that is only part of a tree in front of the police station

very large tree down on someone's covered the whole front of the house

With power back things are getting back to normal...but my day has been anything but great.
Stay safe everyone.
