Sandy was a hurricane that hit the east coast with a vengeance on Oct 22, 2012. Sandy,
Let me tell you a tale
A story that is true.
A hurricane with many faces
All the changes it went through.
Her birth was like all other hurricanes.
Her life like a tropical storm.
No surprises needed to
This and nothing more.
But Sandy held her true face
Right up to the very end.
She was a freak of Nature
Mother Nature had other plans.
Sandy crossed Cuba heading for Florida
Then came up toward the Eastern Shore.
While Sandy was keeping busy
Mother Nature changed the score.
Two major cold fronts coming from the west
Sandy would soon become a snow storm
Hitting the Appalachians hard.
But this isn't where Sandy does her best.
She'll hit the East Coast at the Jersey shore.
The largest hurricane of them all.
She'll touch the biggest cities along the coast
Leaving devastation with much to fall.
When Sandy made land fall.
But then Mother Nature added a twist.
The Full Moon was witness to it all.
NYC flooding was a real problem.
Everywhere the wind took its toll.
West Virginia got two
Now she’s a Northeastern storm we’re told.
They'll say Sandy is a perfect storm,
Her size angry and mean.
She had much character
The likes we've never seen.
Sandy was a child of Mother Nature.
Mother Nature takes the call.
She is the one that surprised us
With a freakish storm that challenges us all.
For we'll remember Halloween 2012.
When Mother Nature wanted to play.
Dressing up to look like a normal Hurricane
Was the real joke of the day.
Mother Nature brought together
All the forces she knew.
Changing the course of history.
Today life here begins anew.
