Our area took a direct hit from Hurricane Sandy over the last few days. There was a lot of rain and gusting wind that sounded like a freight train. My family and I saw flashes of blue light in the sky which turned out to be power transformers blowing! It was very scary. We are off from school all week mostly due to power outages. There are several large trees down and debris all over. Here is a photo of a downed tree and wires across the street from our school.
