My part of The Bronx, NY escaped the storm with only minor damage. My thoughts are with everyone who is struggling out there.
Here is a photo I took from my window before the storm arrived. Things looked very ominous..
As you can imagine I spent the day glued to the TV and Social Media. Sadly I saw and image online and shared on Facebook and Twitter which turned out to be from the movie The Day After Tomorrow. I am usually not gullible but with the wind howling outside I was willing to believe anything.
My only saving grace was I was not alone Mashable have a collection of images people were sharing by mistake
This is from the immediate area around my apartment. As you can see I am very lucky compared to people nearby.
I am not sure if I will be able to get back into Manhattan for work and the Halloween parade but that is minor compared what some people are going through.
