Hurricane Sandy

My cousin Courtney came and spent a day in Room 209 because she left her home in New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy. Luckily, her family, house and dog were all fine, but they had no power.

We got to ask her lots of questions about what it's like to stay in a house during a hurricane. It sounded pretty scary. Also, we were surprised to hear that Hallowe'en was "postponed" in her town.

Below are several links, some of which we've looked at in class, that will give you a better idea of what's going on in the eastern US because of Hurricane Sandy.
