Still no power to the house, but PSE&G were in the neighborhood working on downed trees and power lines.

Hurricane Sandy Aftermath:  Day 3

Many trees and wires were down. The power had been out for several days. Those with gasoline emergency generators were out of luck when they ran out of gas — the gas stations if you could get to them didn’t have emergency generators to run the pumps. One of the lessons learned. Now many gas stations have auxiliary power. I still had a bit of propane in my RV to run the generator, however food in the fridge and freezer in the house was going bad. I was cooking outside on a charcoal grill. Images from that day taken with a Leica V-Lux 30 camera.

Eleven days post Hurricane Sandy. Electricity had been restored and I was finally able to cook a meal in the house again. Ramen Noodle Soup with Beef and Red Onion. Prior to this I had been cooking by propane in my RV (which was running low because I had been running the generator to charge neighbors cell phones).

Sunrise ten days post Hurricane Sandy. Power was on and off during the night, so I could start heating the house. Image taken with a Leica V-Lux 30 camera (ISO 160, 4.3 mm, f/3.3, 1/60 sec).
