Hurricane Sandy Recap 10/30/12

Hurricane Sandy blew through the North Country late Monday into early Tuesday with peak wind gusts of 35-50mph in most Adirondack hamlets. Reported rainfall generally ranged from 0.5-1.5 inches in the central and eastern Adirondacks, with 0.5 inches or less in the western Adirondacks.

Strong northeast to easterly winds knocked down or uprooted many large trees which were normally accustomed to withstanding strong west to southwesterly winds. Blowdown clean-up will be needed before this winter, but that’s nothing compared to the swath of devastation that Hurricane Sandy laid down from Long Island down to Virginia! In essence, we received a glancing blow from this natural disaster.

Since this is il*snow*.com I’ll leave you with a great snow pic from the high ground of West Virginia!
