Oh Sandy!

Well it's almost six o'clock here on Long Island, the sun is going down and now's the time for the the really scary stuff!  Hurricane Sandy is approaching quickly, and it's evident from what's going on outside my window.  Luckily I still have electrical power, but I'm not sure for how long, so excuse me for any grammatical errors because I'm typing at break-neck speed.


The headline to this picture on says "LANDFALL IMMINENT," so yeah, it's just about here.  This is far worse than Hurricane Irene, which hit us about 13 months ago.  The sounds and sights accompanying the winds are terrifying, to say the least, and I'm sure it will get worse for me once it's completely dark.  This is one of the times I absolutely hate living alone!

This is Greenport, Long Island earlier today, about five miles from where I work.
