Hurricane Brothers

     Imagine! It's 12:00 AM and you are sitting at home with no light, no power and no heat. All you hear is the sound of the endless pitter-patter of the rain against the cool surface of the window.  Hurricane Sandy and Hurricane Irene did lots of damage but one more than the other. From Hurricane Sandy, I had lots of power outages and a little flooding. Irene, however, dealt us with less damage and less rain.
     CRACK! These types of noises were heard over 10 times. It was the sound of 20 year old trees falling crushing nearby cars.  During Irene, I only heard WOOSH! The wind just blew but did no damage. In the aftermath of Sandy, I went outside and saw power lines knocked over. Cars and houses crushed under trees and lots and lots of patio furniture, fences, and other household items scattered across the road. All in all, Sandy was the stronger brother and caused more trouble across the whole east coast.


  1. You know, your essay was very similar to Gabe's.
    You had nearly the same title. You had the same reasons. You also started with the same word. Ironic, right?

    1. Really? I have to check his out then! After all, I am Gabe's best friend.

  2. Hey Iqbal!!I like your beginning, I think it's very descriptive. Great job!!

  3. Dear Iqbal,
    Hi it's Gabe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I liked your post. It was very good. Like Ishan said it was like mine, strange. Oh yea I'm not your best friend. I'm your brother.

    Your Brother,

  4. Nice essay. I liked how you said Sandy was the bigger brother, and your intro was very good. Keep it up!

  5. Iqbal,

    Good job.It had a striking similarity to Gabe's, especially because I just read Gabe's (Nice job Gabe). Your intro was good, but there is room for improvement. Sorry for the criticism, but I'm just imbuing my thoughts into the comment.
