Well, we seem to have done okay with Storm Sandy--we never lost power, a few flickers, but a lot of people are without power in the area, including Brooks in Arlington. Things really got wild last night, with really strong winds and hard rain, but this morning things seem calmer. Still raining, but no wind. I just went out and took a long walk and took these pictures. I didn't see any damage in our neighborhood, just lots of leaves and some branches down. So much for fall foliage. But it did feel good to get outside and get some fresh air. Things should improve today as the storm moves away. Federal government is closed again today, but the metro reopens at 2 pm, so life should be getting back to normal soon. Phew!
