Hurricane Virgin Update #Sandy

I think I might still be a hurricane virgin. If there’s an opposite end of “got the worst of it,” that would be us here in NW DC. The wind shook the house a bit, the rain was getting close to horizontal, but other than a couple puddles in the basement (the walk-out door blew open), we were high and dry. I called my cousin in Brooklyn and all is well there (although her sister in Staten Island has no power). I’m worried about my Manhattan friends. I hope they all check in over the next couple days.

Here’s some video of what it was like here. As you can see, kind of boring. I guess that’s the best way to go through a hurricane.

It got a little worse after nightfall, but not much. Glad to be spared, and sending good thoughts to those who went through storm surge, flooding, and power outages.
