Reston Weathers Sandy Relatively Well

Storm moves out Tuesday morning as people began moving back to life.

Tuesday morning dawned cold and still a bit rainy, but Reston emerged from the worst of Superstorm Sandy relatively drama free.

Many residents hunkered down to sleep in basements Monday night, but only a scattering of homes lost power during the worst of the storm.

Some trees fell, but overall, June's Derecho seemed to have caused much more damage here.

By 10 a.m., most restaurants at Reston Town Center were preparing to open. One worker at Market Street Bar & Grill at the Hyatt Regency Reston was setting up chairs on the patio in an optimistic move.

It was business as usual at the and all seats were taken at the nearby Starbucks as people tapped on laptops, getting some work done even as their offices were closed.

Fairfax County government, including the Reston and Reston Association remain closed Tuesday. To report downed trees on association property, please call 703-435-6530 or e-mail RA Central Services at CSFstaff@reston.org.
