Did Sandy do much damage on the Great Lakes?
She blew through Pittsburgh, but the damage seemed no greater than that done by a typical line of heavy thunderstorms. Most of that cleaned up at the local level within a week or so.

I can’t imagine it did any more damage than any other storm to roll through. We had gusts near 60mph just the other day and we sure as hell didn’t get anything like that from Sandy.

A few boats still docked in Lake Erie got smashed and sunk. If this had hit us in the summer when all the boats were in the lakes, it would have been messy due to extended 15-25 foot waves. See my post #14 for what happened near me on land.
