Yesterday we spent most of the day inside as Frankenstorm aka Hurricane Sandy rolled into NYC. At first she didn't seem like much, there was barely a drizzle up near Chris's apartment in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, but as the day went on the rain came down harder and the wind picked up a bit. We watched a couple of movies, ate some naughty treats, drank coffee and stayed updated with the news. I also did some studying for school as yesterday was my very first day at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition! What a memorable first day of school that was!
I still wasn't impressed with this storm because as a native Floridian I've been through many hurricanes, that was until Chris and I decided to walk down to the banks of the East River. As we walked down 72nd street the winds became very strong and blew us around the sidewalk. We made it down to the water and noticed we weren't the only crazy New Yorkers out in the storm! The water had risen and was starting to wash over onto the walkway and within only 15 minutes the water was about a nearly a foot over the walkway and continued to rise. At one point several police cars pulled up on the FDR, which was closed due to the storm, and told everyone to go home. We figured we better head home but decided to make a quick video before heading back :)
Where you affected by Sandy? What did you do to pass time during the storm?
