Snapshots of a storm

The coast guard stands watch in NY harbor as Hurricane Sandy approaches

Fall-ing leaves… a lot fell in the first few hours as the winds picked up

It was nowhere as quiet as the picture! Lashing winds and rain at 60-100 mph

The river rushes in… slowly!

Well, to be fair, the name of this street is River Drive after all !

Inside the apartment complex – as the water started to rise

… and continued to rise…

… and then on into the lobby – and evacuation of the first floor

The leaves of fall – again

Cars slowly vanished into the swirling waters


Lake front property.

A disturbing darkness sets in as the street lights lose power first…

The darkness spreads as the storm rages on

The whole of downtown Manhattan went dark – in a half hour time frame… it was really weird to watch


Dark streets

Passing lights

Fallen trees…

… at every turn

And debris… this board was from none of the nearby building. Impaled onto a blunt tipped railing! Wouldn’t have wanted to be in the path of that

A flooded store… after the waters receded

Downtown Manhattan… day after the storm. Still largely dark

One beacon of light

And a few more

Three days later… the moon lends a hand in trying to light up the NY skyline! Still some ways to go…

The street lights come back on around home. Who knew normal could feel so good!
