Happy-Medium Post-Sandy Halloween.

I was going to share some Halloween photos and a great recipe today, but that will have to wait.

It’s cool but dry here, and the clouds are starting to move away for the first time in days. We are all fine after Hurricane Sandy made a visit this week.

I was working from home Monday when the power went out a little before 2:00 p.m. The good news is that power was restored at around 11:30 Tuesday night. In my neighborhood (where we’ve had 16 storm-related power outages in 14 years), that breaks the previous record by a couple of days.

Damage in the neighborhood was very minimal too. Only one of our stately old trees blew over, and one medium-sized pine tree took out a fence. One car damaged. Some basements took on water. That’s about all. We received a LOT of rain. But the winds, while fierce, did less damage than the Derecho storm a few months back (click here for photos from that damage).

So all in all, it wasn’t as bad as we feared this time. We were very, very fortunate. Unlike some in New Jersey, New York, and all the way up the coast.

If you’re one of the many who were in the path of the storm North of me, please know that I’m thinking of you and donating to the Red Cross. If there’s something I can do for you specifically, please leave a comment and let me know. Be well, and stay warm.

    Thanks, Stephen, for your assistance. I’m doing fine (as I wrote on my blog) and staying with family who’s got the technology (and power) to keep me warm.
