hurricane sandy in nc

While the violent Hurricane Sandy ravished the northeast, us North Carolinian's were feeling it's affects as well. Although the temperature in Charlotte has been bitter cold and the winds were much higher than normal, those of us living in the piedmont haven't been affected by the storm on any level. Our mountains and coastline, however, have seen more dramatic affects of this record breaking storm.

Hurricane Sandy's path of destruction

I've been glued to the tv for 2 straight days. I don't think I've left my couch for hours, flipping back and forth between the Today Show and Fox News. This storm's magitude is still unimaginable to me, and although I worry about everyone in the northeast, I'm also concerned about the pets and stray animals that have been affected and killed in this storm. The overall devastation just breaks my heart and it'll definitely be the next addition to high school history books. Is the end of the word coming?

Hug your loved ones and stay safe friends!

  1. Yuck to the snow - luckily we have just got rain here in Southern Ontario!

    It breaks my heart about the strays that are stuck outside!! Soo sad!! I am praying that everyone is able to make it through this storm. It sure has a lot of hype and potential to cause damage!

  6. I've spent the last 2 days checking on my family in Virginia obsessively. They're in Central VA so they fared similar to you - but with snow. It just breaks my heart all the way around.
