Not a normal post for Gilbert Musings, but as a Brooklynite, I was shocked to hear and see what took place recently in a neighborhood I used to frequent. A freak wind storm with 70 plus MPH winds blew through Marine Park section of Brooklyn, New York on Saturday night, uprooting trees and caused some major damage leaving residents without power for about 10 hours.
I have never seen anything like this in Brooklyn before. You expect this kind of damage from a hurricane in Florida, but New York? Craziness.
