Trader Joe’s line in Brooklyn #Sandy Park
There was a crazy line to get into trader joes this morning, can’t imagine there is anything on the shelf left to buy #brooklyn #sandyCheck Out My Melody
Massive lines in every store here in Brooklyn. Batteries and water sold out everywhere. Stay safe everyone! #sandy #panicCindi Leive
Apparently Brooklyn is carbo loading & making #Sandy sandwiches… Casal

Fair enough vis-a-vis #Sandy, but come on: some Sout Brooklyn bars better stay open for #NOvsDenAlexander J. Hancock
Looking at that NYC evacuation map, it’s great to know there isn’t an "evacuation center" anywhere in North Brooklyn. #SandyJeff Conklin
Guys, seriously? A line to get into Trader Joe’s? Calm down, people. I honestly expected more from you, Brooklyn. #FrankenstormLeslie Gwinn

@WNYC Grocery checkout line is 40+ deep. Shoppers using milk crates as all carts & baskets are taken. #sandy #BrooklynHeightsLauren Strayer
Generators and sand bags all over the sidewalk. #hurricanesandy #hurricane #sandy #brooklyn #nyc
I’m also concerned about the fate of this poorly protected scaffolding outside my window #Frankenstorm #Brooklyn Lucci

Dear #Frankenstorm go easy on my bunker – I just feng shui’d it. #BrooklynJ LaLonde
Highly impressed by NYC’s DOT; Brooklyn Heights full of trash carts cleaning drainage areas of leaves & emptying trash #SandyBen Malbon
Grocery store is a mad house. Either there is a special on Brooklyn artisanal water or a storm is coming. I bet on the first. #SandySarah Dell’Aquila
