Sandy, 3:45 ET

Winds here on the South Shore of Massachusetts are gusting very strongly.  Lots of branches are down in my backyard, but that pine tree next to my garage that we decided not to cut down is still holding out.  The power is still on, with just a few flickers.  At company where I work, pretty much everyone logged in remotely today, but I lost the connection to my desktop at work about half an hour ago.

Here’s the view out back (showing the husks of our sunflowers):

And here’s the sky:

Everybody stay safe!
