It's been called the Frankenstorm, the perfect storm, and one of the biggest storms the East Coast has ever seen. Parked, is not the way Clifford Anderson expected to ride out Hurricane Sandy.
Anderson works for a towing company, but he says Monday's been surprisingly calm.
"Slow, very slow," said Anderson. "Waiting for calls, waiting to go home."
And what little he has seen, certainly isn't what would come to mind for a hurricane.
"I've seen a couple trees down, a couple cars that lost it on the interstate, but other than that it's been just a normal rainy day," said Anderson.
In fact, most of the lights are still on around town.We did find a flopping stop sign and some flags dancing in the wind. But even with the whipping winds hitting the trees and the bushes, it seems Sandy didn't keep people inside. : Even local restaurants had full parking lots.
"Surprisingly yeah, there's a lot of people that's come out," who works at Outback in Henrico. "People are still coming out while they can."
And nothing about this storm scared two teenagers enough to stay home from buying last minute Halloween costumes.
"I was getting my costume for Halloween because I have a party to go to."
So, the perfect storm? Perhaps, say some, simply because in Central Virginia, Sandy hasn't been all that bad.
