Was Sandy as Bad as Irene?

For much of the past week, Hurricane Sandy dominated the region's media coverage. Did it feel worse or not quite as bad as last year's storm?

Much of the Northeastern United States slowed down on Monday to watch Hurricane Sandy make its way up the coast toward its eventual landfall on New England. Throughout the day, residents of Hamilton and Wenham endured high winds, downed trees and wires and power outages.

The storm came a year after Hurricane Irene, which left many residents in Hamilton and Wenham without power. So which storm do you think was worse – Sandy or Irene?

All I can say is we were VERY lucky. Our lights flickered Mon. night but never went out, we have branches down, but, no water in basement. SO LUCKY!! I feel so bad for those who lost power (still do not have it), and especially NY and NJ residents.
