The Calm Before the Storm?
Hurricane Sandy is supposed to strike New Jersey tomorrow. It remains to be seen how much damage it causes. Last year we had two bad storms - Irene and the freak snowstorm in October. During Irene, there was massive flooding throughout New Jersey. During the snowstorm, we lost power for almost a week and many trees were destroyed.
This afternoon I took a brief walk in chilly Edgemont Park in Montclair. These photos were taken with my smartphone. How many of these trees will survive?
Children were playing sports in the back of the park, despite the chilly, cloudy weather (there is a school directly behind the park).
New Jersey is preparing for a really bad storm, especially the beautiful New Jersey shore. Perhaps the storm will lose its massive power before it hits. Hopefully, we'll make it through relatively unscathed.
