The "Bright" (or at least "Smoky") side of Hurricane Sandy

For beekeepers, there is at least one bright side to some of the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy: With all the fallen or damaged trees that need to be chain-sawed, there is a LOT of free smoker fuel just lying around on the ground.

Gather ye wood chips while you may.  Use the sawdust lying on the ground where those trees were cut up for fuel for your smoker.

Prospect Park in Brooklyn has had over three hundred trees felled by Hurricane Sandy, so if you have a chance, get out there and gather some fuel.
