The dry corner of the storm

The map depicts rain in inches.

As Sandy plowed its way onto land last night, we saw the Albany Weather Examiner page comment that this area had ended up on the "dry side" of the storm.

So we looked up the National Weather Service 1-day precipitation map today, and as you can see above, the Capital Region very much ended up with very little rain compared to the rest of the Northeast. In fact, you might even be able to say we were in the "dry corner" of the storm. We were lucky.

We were very lucky to escape Sandy's wrath!
One of my sisters lives in Greenich Village near 5th Ave.
She finally answered her cell phone today to tell me she had walked all the way to 79th to power her cell.
All the electricity was cut off in her area.
That means no WATER either.
I had told her last w.e. to come here!
Hope all N.Y.C.'s,and N.J. 's power comes on soon!

... I think for me and many in the community, there is a desire to go back to this point in time, were neighborhoods were rounder, more complete and effervescent, and not so square that they can't take any unique pegs coming its way. There is a lot of energy in this neighborhood, and potential, not unlike other industrial zones in other cities, that have scene remarkable change towards diverse economies.
