The month began with a howl, courtesy of Super Storm Sandy. At the end of October, she was still recovering from all the wedding excitement and from having been sick for essentially an entire month. When Sandy arrived on 29 October, the new house lost power at 4 PM, which made Halloween truly spooky, although an excellent opportunity to meet the new neighbors. Living by candlelight and without heat for a week, she decided this was an opportunity to recap the truly significant events of the prior month. The dates would not be accurately recorded, but the story would be.
