I did not think Hurricane Sandy was a big deal. During the hurricane, I literally went outside to feel how windy it was. That was an exciting moment. If only it wasn't drizzling, it would have been the perfect day. Even after the hurricane has passed us, I didn't think it was really important, until I turned on the television and saw flooded areas, fires, and destroyed houses. I heard of people without electricity. I heard of gas shortage. I realized how destructive Hurricane Sandy really was. When I went outside, down the street were down trees.
