Some before, during and after pics of my NYC neighborhood over the last day or two. Not necessarily in order, because it’s all kinda been a blur. Thank goodness we were lucky enough just to have to deal with howling winds, a swaying building and stir crazy children who were stuck inside for about 36 hours. Except for some flickering lights and spotty phone service, we even had electricity throughout.
Prayers for those who are dealing with much worse.
I can’t say that I’m terribly panicked about Hurricane Sandy. I live in uptown Manhattan, and though there seems to be a good chance that we will lose power and that my husband and I may have to work hard not to completely lose our minds while stuck inside with two stir-crazy kids, we should be relatively safe.
I have an empty cooler and a whole bunch of ice cubes ready, so that if power goes out I can keep perishables cold for a while. I have plenty of food, art projects and games, a fully charged DVD player and iPad, an Eton hand crank radio/flashlight/cellphone charger, candles, matches, flashlights, glow sticks and batteries.
