Some stunning contrasts in nature this past week with orange foliage and white snow on the ground! As many problems as the snowstorm brought, if you look closely it brought beauty with it!

Last week was hurricane Sandy, this week a Nor'Easter with snow and sleet! The weather has been crazy! It's already sticking! Especially at the beach which hasn't even recovered yet from the storm as you can see in the second picture!

Below are three cool maps I stumbled across from NRCC Northeast Regional Climate Center. One show lowest pressure, another peak winds and total precipitation. As you can see this was a massive storm system!

Just found this video of giant waves in Ocean City, MD last Monday October 29, 2012 as Hurricane Sandy passed by. Lucky enough Ocean City, MD wasn't has devastated as the Jersey Shore.

Here are some photos of tree damage caused by Hurricane Sandy! What was lucky for my area is that a lot of the leaves had already fallen off the trees, add in Irene's damage last year and snowtober which took out the weak trees and not as many trees fell as you would think with hurricane force wind gust!!
Below are photos from the CT shore where storm surge carried a shed into a 3 way intersection (2nd photo). The first and third pictures show water still flooding streets from the earlier storm surge!
These photos were taken at Point Beach in Milford, CT where just 14 months to the day earlier was hit hard by Tropical Storm Irene. The damage and storm surge flooding was very similar to Irene. These photos were taken the morning after Sandy at low tide. Notice the boarded up homes along the coast and the electronics sitting on rocks next to the water!
These two photos were taken after the storm passed through at low tide! The street is covered in rocks from the normally calm Long Island Sound, the waves are still rough even after the storm passes, as you can see in the second photo!
Here in southwestern CT we lost power on Monday night 10/29/12 at 6:40 pm and didn't get it back till 4:10 pm 11/2/12! That's the longest I've ever been without power! And I think it's all due to the below telephone pole which was leaning from the winds!
