The Nor’easter of 2010

March 14, 2010

The weather yesterday did a number on Long Island.

I have never seen so many trees, fences, and power lines down. Holy cow! Two trees came down in the yards next to us. Luckily both fell away from the power lines instead of on the power lines. Both took out fences. My BBQ blew off the deck and luckily hung on for dear life, with out falling completely off. We also lost our street sign.

Right through the fence. Usually there a car parked in that very spot on the street. Good thing not last night. In the next pictures you can see the power lines that the tree avoided.


The fence fell into our driveway.

The other tree that fell and also avoided the same power lines. This fell through the fence of the same neighbors next to us. The lost fence on both sides. Two trees down into their yard.

My poor BBQ hanging on for dear life.

On top of all this, Kuma had to go into the city yesterday for work. On the way home there was a power outage on the train signals. So his train was stuck out in Nassau for 2 hours. Luckily at a station. I went and rescued him. The roads were a mess. A mess. And there was lightning.

What a crazy storm!
