Surviving Sandy

So, I’ve lived in New York for two years and just made it through my second hurricane… Both, from my perspective, seemed a lot more mild than I was expecting, but this time around there was definitely a lot more damage and destruction everywhere. I am also lucky to be included in the minority of people who didn’t loose power at all. The whole night I was on my computer working waiting for the power to cut out, but it never happened. I did see the flashes in the sky from the big Con Edison explosion on 14th street, but I’m definitely surprised it never went out.

I went out for a small walk in my neighborhood this morning to check out the damage and do some top notch eye witness reporting (just like every other idiot in my neighborhood. haha). There was a bit of damage, but not as much as I was expecting and I did luck out and catch an awesome rainbow. Check out a few photos after the jump and if you live in NY and want to send your pics hit me up (harrison@defgrip.net) and if I get enough stuff I’ll get a post going with everyone’s photos.
