Saturday night March, 13th, 2010 was just wild. For hours on end all you could hear were the sounds of sirens. Outside looked and sounded as if WW3 were in full swing. Heading north from Fort Lee towards Englewood Cliffs, what appeared to be bombs blasting off in the thick clouds of a rainy night sky, were downed power wires. As I approached, the site, that had the sky aglow in hues of purple, blue, orange and heavenly white, the asphalt was engulfed in flames dancing along the city street. Edgewater, had to have people rafted out from the Comfort Inn to the safety of higher ground due to flooding. Several cars and trucks were submerged in water as the Hudson River's fury broke past it's shoreline invading all in its wake. With the torrential rain and wind gusts up to 70 mph, trying to take decent photos and video was difficult. In an instant my lenses got soaked, resulting in my having to get back into the car to try and dry off the lenses. The wind, made it near impossible to walk very far. A couple of times, my near 3500 lb car was shaking pretty vigorously. Getting back into car, I thought the doors were going to be torn from its hinges. It was really scary, but, fun to be out in one of nature's most extreme weather conditions.
This was considered one of the worst storms, in decades. The emergency personnel for the many municipalities must be exhausted as they had to work through the night and all of today.
The amount of damage due to this storm will take many weeks to months to clean up. It was indeed a wild night.
