The Rockstars Survive Hurricane Sandy!!!
We are safe and very blessed that the damage to our house and property was minimal compared to those who lost everything in the areas that were devastated by Hurricane Sandy. That being said, during the storm, the winds howled and the trees that fell on our house and around it, shook the house as if there was an earthquake. We lost power and have been told not to expect it back for 7-10 days. Our house is blocked as there are fallen trees and wires on the street on both sides of our house. Our deck was completely destroyed by fallen trees and caused roof damage. The tarping company has been out already to cover that many holes in the roof from the elements. Fortunately, we have a generator that will run our well pump, the fridge, heat and some lights.
The street is blocked on both sides by giant trees and wires. Ironically, our mailbox, was spared!
Below is the view from our kitchen sliding glass door onto the deck...
Giant, 100 foot tall trees, were blown over from their roots!
The blocked road on the other side of our house.
