Top Ten: Blackout

Main Street in downtown Stroudsburg is normally one of the busiest here in our area.  This picture was taken in the middle of the morning rush hour, October 30.  The street is empty.  Why?  Hurricane Sandy is overhead.  There is no electricity.  Monroe County, in terms of the number of homes and businesses blacked out, was the hardest hit county here in our area.  The recovery took several days.

This is one of those pictures where the lack of activity speaks volumes.

Tomorrow... pleasant scenery.
