We were spared from the worst of the storm in Providence. Although we had sustained winds and some very strong gusts, we had no serious damage in our neighborhood. The hurricane barrier worked well, and there were minimal power outages and damage in Providence. I wish I could say the same for my friends in South County, Falmouth, Connecticut, and New Jersey.
I fear the impact that coastal flooding has had in Southern Rhode Island. My best friend is also suffering the effects of Sandy in Hoboken, NJ. Parts of the city are impassable. They most likely lost their car, since the garage under the building flooded. I know it was a long night…
I am hoping all of you in Sandy’s path are safe! Things are pretty much shut down for the second day in a row. The kids are managing pretty well, although we do have a little cabin fever. I may try to see if we can get out for a drive later.
School and other activities are set to resume tomorrow-hopefully they will get to go out for Halloween. I am looking forward to getting exercise, since we have been cooped up inside!
Were you in Sandy’s path? How is the damage in your area?
