Hurricane Sandy as Evening Begins, Eastern Harford County

The brunt of the storm is beginning; there’s a definite change in intensity. This is no longer a rain storm. We’re having strong wind gusts with moderate rain. Weather service is reporting winds of 37mph, still from the northwest, and gusts up to 54 mph.

There’s some minor damage in the neighborhood as seen from my home.  A dead tree is down:

And a neighbor is losing a piece of their house siding:

We just lost power for a few minutes. Not sure if you can get a sense of the of the weather from here:

The eye of Sandy should pass right over my house (well, figuratively) about 11:30pm as it traverses the northeast corner of Maryland, through Harford and Cecil counties. Currently, we are still in a “blow out” scenario, where the northwest winds are pushing water down the streams and out of the Chesapeake Bay.

Other great blogs covering the bayside impact of Hurricane Sandy are Bay Photos by Donna and Chesapeake Journal.
