Sandy gave my state the D.
For every Yankee who watched as we ran around getting ready for and cleaning up after storms and said "This is a hurricane? This is nothing, we get bigger storms than this"......
Congratulations. You got one. Maybe now you understand why we take them seriously.

Just found this topic.
During Sandy, I lived in Nutley, NJ - small town in Essex county NJ, 20 or so minutes from NYC. The storm wasn't bad with rain, even wind honestly. It was the storm surge that flooded everything. We had beer and food and candles/flashlights at the ready. We lost power around 6pm that Sunday night - wasn't restored until Saturday. It was a rough week, no food after awhile, no hot water, gas shortage, etc.
But we made it out pretty lucky. My buddy used to live on the Lower East Side and his place was pretty much destroyed.

If anyone wants to see some incredible video of the storm:
The person pushing on the door at the 2:00 mark is just an example of the amazing scenes.
