The East Coast was hit by the massive Hurricane Sandy, October 29, 2012. Dubbed “Frankenstorm,” due to its unique combination of characteristics including sustained wind speeds in excess of 90 miles per hour and arrival at high tide on a night of a full moon during the week of Halloween, the Category 1 hurricane was upgraded to a Superstorm. Weather forecasters predicted that this storm could be the largest hurricane in New England history; they were not mistaken.
As the storm headed up the coast yesterday, I decided to capture a few moments in my neighborhood, the North End. I began my adventure with winds challenging my every step. When I wandered up Hanover Street, the rain began to pour down in sheets. Within minutes I was soaked from head to toe. Visibility became limited as water fell from the sky.
Here are a few photos from my experience with Hurricane Sandy, 2012. Thankfully Boston was spared from the worst of the tragic impact of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation. For more info and photos from Sandy go to
