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
… 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!
