Yup, we got downgraded. The big hurricane we were all expecting didn’t hit us and most New Yorkers are having the “that’s it?” feeling after the storm passed. I don’t. As much as we prepared and bought water and food to last through a power outage – and then didn’t even have anything happen – we are glad that at least we were prepared and didn’t just blow this off. Better to be safe than sorry, no? Plus, I know lots of other people around the East Coast weren’t half as lucky as we were so we are considering ourselves happy that the hurricane was downgraded to a tropical storm and nothing bad happened to us!
Around us this was the extent of the damage – lots of leaves and branches on the ground! The wind is still blowing steadily in the 20-30mph range so nothing to sneeze at, but for now the danger is passed and life can get back to normal. I for one am looking forward to tomorrow when we can take the dogs for a walk and enjoy the sunshine. And that’s what we’ll do!
I hope all of you were able to stay as safe as we did and that you were “disappointed” with the storm. And if not, I hope things get fixed up and back to normal for you very very soon!
