Right before I lost power on Monday Oct. 29 during Hurricane Sandy at 8:45 p.m., Stephen King’s Storm of the Century was on television…I’m not kidding.
Was it an eerie coincidence or intentional? I think the former, because the TV listing that comes with the Sunday’s Daily News was printed way before the storm hit and there it was listed in the guide.
This is by far, the worst non-snowstorm I have ever seen. The aftermath of Sandy’s slap on the island couldn’t have been dreamt up in the worst of nightmares.
The scenes of flooded streets in New York City were as if they were plucked right out of the film The Day After Tomorrow. Billions of dollars in damage, lives lost, memories etched in stone.
Was it the storm of the century? To this editor, yes.
Good luck to those who were affected by the storm.
