That's what you have to say about Sandy. The DC area dodged it. Not to say there aren't people without power. Or there haven't been problems. A sewage treatment plant was dumping raw sewage into the Potomac River because it lost power.
Around 200,000 people were without power at the start of the day. The number has been going down all day. That's a lot of people but no where near the 1.2 million that lost power in the derecho in June. So I guess you have to say DC was lucky.
I went out this afternoon and this was the only damage that I found in walking around Brookland for about 30 minutes or so.
Here's hoping New York, New Jersey and points further north can quickly recover from this devastating storm.
