The strangest Sandy damage

I honestly don’t know if this was THE strangest damage attributable to Hurricane Sandy, but it was the strangest that any of us encountered:
Awning from a neighboring mobile home flew off and sailed this rod into the wall of Carolyn and Kendall Coleman’s mobile home around 9:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 29, 2012, in the Tall Oak Estates mobile home park in Dover Township, York County, Pa. Carolyn Coleman, 69, who has lived in this home with her husband for 13 years, said she had been in the other end of the mobile home when “the trailer shook and then I heard the bang and then the crash.” After commenting she wouldn’t be able to replace the wallpaper and the shattered mirror — which she has had for 13 years — she and her husband joked about keeping the rod in place and using it to store toilet paper.
Good thing neither Carolyn nor Kendall was using the toilet when this happened. Here’s a closer look:
