Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy

Thanks to a question from Gus Ogushwitz, Harry Heist provides the following report from Dover:


All is well. We were very fortunate compared to the surrounding States. All our airplanes, including the C-45 & Blue Canoe came through OK. The smaller ones were our concern.
Most of Delaware’s damage was to the south with dunes being breached and several roads flooded and a lot of beach sands about.

One gust of wind hit our house about 8 pm during the storm and I thought the roof was coming off. I have no idea its strength. The next morning’s check of the house showed no damage.

I think we all should be concerned with the changing weather patterns. They’ve been radical in Delaware in the past few years. I hear that the experts believe that one contributing cause of Sandy may be due to the warming of the ice cap—who knows.

We all thank you for your concern,
