We catch a break as Sandy became a superstorm and gave us a glancing blow

I know those are odd words, because so far here in Maryland we’ve had two reported tragic deaths related to Hurricane Sandy – now Super storm Sandy. We really did get lucky here as Sandy only gave us a glancing blow instead of just running us over. Yes, there were hairy moments and we had a flickering lights, a block away from us browned out for 10 minutes and some minor flooding around the basement door, but it could have and should have been a lot worse. At one point Sandy was accelerating just before landfall and heading right for us, then she spluttered and lost a lot of strength. In essence we got the weak part of the storm and for that I am very thankful. 

However there are many who didn’t get as lucky and Sandy did wreak havoc along the East Coast. I urge you if you can to make a donation to the American Red Cross who once again are doing an amazing job along side all the First Responders out there.

I do urge you all that were in the Sandy’s path to not travel today unless you have too, it is still raining and there are a lot storm related conditions out there.  Hope you all are safe and weathered this event.
