I’ve been out walking around the neighborhood this week and it looks like there are quite a few trees that were damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
Last Monday we had a lot of wind and rain here in Toronto and we lost power over night. We didn’t personally have any damage. Just a little windblown yard but that’s about it. However, as I said, there were a lot of people with damaged trees and trees fallen over in their yards or trees fallen down on their cars.
There are some areas of Toronto where houses are built in fairly low lying areas and they end up having flooding problems every time there’s a terrible rain so I’m sure there were a lot of houses with flooded basements too.
I should have taken some pictures of the damage that I saw. I think most of the trees have been cleaned up by now. Overall the storm wasn’t as bad here as I thought it might be. I know it was a lot worse on the US east coast.
When I was walking around look at damage I thought the local pharmacy had been damaged because I saw a lot of activity there but they were just upgrading and renovating a bit. I guess they had just got some new pharmacy shelving from mfried.com judging by the boxes saw outside and that must have been why there was so much activity there. They weren’t open for business the day I noticed them working on their store.
Do you experience Hurricane Sandy? How did you get through the storm?
