It happened again. After Hurricane Irene, we thought we wouldn’t see another major storm in the Northeast for a long time. Then the forecast showed Sandy, calling it names like “Frankenstorm”, “Storm of the Century” and “The Perfect Storm”. After the damage we suffered a year ago at Irene’s hands, I thought we’d be safe and better prepared. After all, we made it through 2011 with Irene and Winter Storm Alfred, and the major ice storms and blizzards of 2010. Who knew Mother Nature could show such wrath to the tri-state area with Sandy! The Suburban Farmgirl and her family are thanking their lucky horseshoes for surviving such a close call!
