After the storm

I fell behind in posting my images for my Project 52. Time to catch up.

It’s the morning after Hurrican Sandy. The air is cold. I’ve never heard such quiet inside and outside the house. We are still without power. It seems the AT&T cell tower has gone offline. My phone has a no service sign. It’s still dark in the house, but I’m well-rested and can’t sleep anymore. Shaan is up as well. Time to make the coffee. Are we in the eye of the storm, or is it over?

A large tree has fallen across River Road ( near Blue Spring Road ). The tree has brought down the power lines. I’m not sure if these are the lines supplying power to our neighbourhood.

    This looks incredibly dangerous. The day after the hurricane, I went out for a walk and to take pictures too, and after a few hundred yards, I was stopped by the police. The policeman told me that down power lines could transmit electricity through the water on the ground and electrocute people. He said not to get anywhere near a down power line.

    1. I guess if it was so dangerous it presented a danger to the public then they would have put up signs. But in any case, I was careful to avoid down power lines. Police and emergency personnel had roadblocks in places where it was dangerous and not once was I stopped and told to go home. So ... maybe we don't want to huddle like sheep in a cave.
