As the full story of Hurricane-turned-Superstorm Sandy continues to unravel, with so many people still waiting to see just how badly their lives have been changed by its wrath, I just wanted to share a little of what I’ve been collecting as the story developed. From the October 26, 2012 Frankenstorm: What we know about Hurricane Sandy in The Week Magazine, to this morning’s Hurricane Sandy’s Path of Destruction photo spread by Discovery News, Sandy has grabbed the attention of both the U.S. and the world like few storms before it have.
This image is from yesterday’s Video: Hurricane Sandy Seen by Space Station Astronauts article at Universe Today:
I grabbed these from Google Images that show Sandy’s past and future track:
I live in Columbus, Ohio these days, but I was born in Charleston, W.Va. Imagine my surprise this morning, when I opened the door to check the mail and ended up having my face sprayed with ice crystals!
I know the imagery within the video isn’t an exact match to what people have experienced, but I’m sure everyone can still relate to the sentiments behind this song today:
My thoughts are with all those who will be struggling to recover from Sandy’s destruction in the days and weeks ahead. I know yours are too…
I want ice water.
