    Not so amazing for some people who have to walk home, then to find that their house is flooded and spend hours mopping up water and sand. Some of us are very lucky in comparison.

    Wow… “Glass half full…glass half empty” comments.

    Beautiful sunset after the storm coupled with lighting on the horizon. Almost surreal.
