VIDEO CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE

Finally, after a 4 days without power, and nearly 3 days of video and photo editing, I've got most of my photos and videos planted online to be viewed.

Monday, October 29th 2012 was a very exciting day for myself and most likely many weather enthusiasts everywhere.   I had to work in the morning until it was declared that highways would be closed around 1pm.   Once I was let out around noon, I met up with Frank Gaetano and we headed down to Milford, CT to the coast to get some video and photos as Sandy came up and did her worst.

As much as I would have enjoyed being at ground zero in New Jersey for the event, it was probably best in the end that I didn't have the time.   After experiencing wind gusts in excess of 80mph, and combating numerous trees and power lines down in the dark on my 3 hour drive back north 20 miles to Southbury . . . it was clear that this was indeed a very dangerous situation.   I don't think I've ever actually been scared before as I was the drive home at night with winds gusting over 60mph, threatening to knock down trees and lines at any time.   In the end I'm glad I got to experience one of the coolest storms to impact the area in the last 50 years.
