Five-Years Ago (01-November-2012) — New Jersey.

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.
