Hurricane Sandy may still be expected to impact the area by Sunday, but not all local residents were out preparing for it Friday. In fact, some expressed indifference to the storm's arrival, including Hagerstown resident Chuck Holman, who said he plans to do “absolutely nothing” to prepare for it. “I don't think it's necessary because I don't see it being more than just rain,” Holman, 45, said. “I fear nothing like that. It's just nature.” Holman did say, however, that he would vote on Saturday just to make sure he gets it out of the way in case the storm does cause any problems.
