Hurricane Sandy at Reid State Park, Maine

We survived Hurricane Sandy without even so much as a power outage.  Lots of wind and rain, but more like a moderate Nor’easter than the punishing storm that hit further south.  Sandy did make for some spectacular surf at Reid State Park, however.  Here are some shots Tom took this afternoon.

Gotts Cove Hurricane Sandy

Gotts Cove at 5 pm, October 29

We don’t normally get white caps on Gotts Cove, but the winds today have been incredible. But the brunt of Sandy has apparently passed to our south.  We’re getting strong winds, but we still have power at 10:30 pm, when we’re headed for bed.  We seem to have survived at least the first part of Sandy intact.
