Hurricane Sandy and the Roosevelt Island Lighthouse

Even before Hurricane Sandy makes landfall, the storm surge is significant. Here is a photo of the Roosevelt Island Lighthouse I took back in 2007, used for comparison with how the lighthouse looks in today's storm.

  1. Wow, hope you don't get too badly affected by Sandy. We watch from the other side of the world and worry for you all.

    1. Thanks, Carole! This is one big storm, but we're hoping for the best!
