Sandy Parking

"Two passerby survey the damage in the inlet parking, as it remains flooded and stacked with piles of sand after Hurricane Sandy hit days prior on November 3, 2012 in Ocean City, Maryland."

If I've learned anything, it's that weather disturbances never make scheduling easy.

Weeks before I took on an assignment to go to Penn State to cover their game against Ohio State. But when Hurricane Sandy began brewing out in the ocean things started to become complicated.

While I stayed on my original schedule, for a brief moment I had multiple clients wanting me to head to Ocean City, Md., where it looked like the storm may make it's first landfall.

In the end, more than 50 people were killed. It wasn't until days later that I made it down to Ocean City, Md., to survey the damage.

Although nowhere near the damage like that north of Baltimore, the disruption and damage was bad in its own right. Having been to Ocean City since a kid, I never saw the inlet parking lot anything like I saw.

In addition to coverage, I also shot some Instagrams of what I saw over on my iPhone blog.

With that, please remember to donate to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy Relief to help those in need.
