sandy

I just wanted to take a minute to send everyone I know on the East Coast some good vibes, especially my sister Leah who lives in NYC. Stay safe. 

I have been reading up on Sandy quite a bit and hope that everyone has a safe and warm place to sleep tonight. It is hard to fathom the amount of devastation it has brought to certain parts of the city, as well as the other effected areas of the East Coast. Images of the waterlogged subway systems and completely unlit skyline of Manhattan are pretty intense, and that is not to mention all of the fires that have broken out. Hopefully power is restored soon and everything is up and running again in a timely manner.

In case you have not been scouring the news feeds for looks in to the disaster, here are some images I have pulled from around the web. (Images were all found via Telegraph's live feed and from ABC's live feed or photo album). <-- click on any of the links provided for more info/imagery.

I also found a really interesting resource that displays current wind patterns across the US that is definitely worth taking a look at. Click here to view the Hint.fm website and see a live map. Ironically the pattern is quite beautiful, especially in the largely effected areas. (You can also access wind maps from past disasters on their website).
