well if you lived near toronto ontario (as i do),then i will say sandy was not a big deal!
(sorry for all the who suffered the brunt of the storm[s]).
all the news agencies promised Armageddon like conditions in toronto,with massive amounts of rain/snow,and wind speeds up to 110 km./hour! even our
red cross was urging us to prepare for 'the end!'
well the reality is that yes,it got pretty windy at times,but no more so than any summer t-storm we usually have,and i have seen much worse! i have an
old tree in my back yard that if you sneeze at it,it would lose a branch!
last nites wind only brought down a small,5 foot branch,and that was it!
as for the driving rain that was promised,well we only got about 10 cm.(less than an inch)!
this morning the 'rain' has stopped,and there is only a light breeze outside,and its quite mild out.
we had no snow at all! so for me,personally,no sandy wasn't a big deal!
for all those who were affected bt sandy,i wish you well.
i think the media really went overboard with this story,for what reason,i don't know!
i guess we'll see!
and by the way,i do know what 1-3 feet of wet snow does to a roof!!!
try shoveling out yor 40 foot driveway from a 9 foot snow drift!!!
ha ha ha!
