A friend of The K-EARTH 101 Morning Show and former coworker of Gary Bryan checked in with us this morning to give a first-hand account of the aftermath from Hurricane Sandy.

Mike Opelka lives in Manhattan, but is currently hunkered down in Wilmington, Delaware to weather out the storm, which isn’t much better where he’s at. Just in one night, Mike tells us that the town saw 10+inches of rain and fell right under the cross-hares of the storm.

Despite “considerable damage” in the area from the hurricane, Mike and his family are safe and his home in NYC is also fine. “I’m really thankful, I have to double down on my prayers today,” he said.

But one of the interesting points Mike brought up in an piece he’s writing for theblaze.com, was whether or not this disaster could force a postponement for the election. Mike explains that the president himself doesn’t have the power to postpone election day, but others in the government do.

“It appears that the secretarys of state and governors in all these northeastern states have the ability to alter the election day, so this could be a real interesting week,” explained Mike.

Listen below to Mike’s full account of the storm below.
