Take care and be safe to all of those in the path of the storm. Here in Charlotte NC we are getting high winds and cold temps but no rain. I hope that whatever predictions of destruction the talking heads on TV claim are exaggerated and no members here suffer any losses.

A little concerned for my son who is at school in Vermont as that area took a beating with Irene last August and this looks to be as bad, if not worse.

Living in Iowa don't look so bad at times like these.


Or Minnesota, too!

Just a shout out to you fellas that are along the east coast and this HUGE storm about to pummel those of us here!

Tropical Storm Lee from last year is still very fresh on my mind as my house was flooded. Already we have heavy rain and gusty winds, and I'm on the outer fringes of the storm (Central PA). There's the possibility of the power going out----if that's the case I can look forward to a mess again, as there will be no place for the water to go, despite having a sump pump in the basement.

At least I might be able to get some building done.................provided the power stays up and running through all of this. :unsure:

Take care all and be safe!

Bill,


Just pack up the car and come on out to Minnesota! We have not had much snow in the last few years. We are practically in the Banana Belt the way Global warming is going!

I got friends and family back in Newport Rhode Island whom I spoke to and there is heavy flooding and lots of damage.
Newport being a seaside town with lots of history in sailing,jvc jazz fest,and the international tennis hall of fame plus other things have weathered lot of severe storms in the past but we hadnt seen anything like this at home since the 38 hurricane,so when the sun comes up the pics of the damage from home will be heart breaking.

Nothing here so far although down the shore they're issuing rainfall and flood warnings so the storm's coming....

Well as of this morning, things have quieted down somewhat. My power is still on and never did go out during the night. There are areas around me that have no power, but I'm thankful this one was not as destructive as Lee was last year. My job has shut down for the day.............that's all well and good as it can give me some more time for building! :D

Of course the storm's not done, as it's starting to curve toward the north, and there's still the possibility of the storm stalling and sending high river water our way. :o

I saw footage of a explosion of some sort at the Manhattan Con-Ed station, and heard that the Atlantic City boardwalk is toast.

This morning it's pretty calm and not much damage in the yard .. just small branches. Looks like the coastal areas .. CT, MA and RI got the worst with New Jersey taking the brunt of it. My son in NJ says it's a bit wet there and the beach is downtown shopping.

im southeast of Cleveland and we had 50 to 60 mph winds last night, sustained wind today of 30 to 40 mph and it hasn't stopped raining since saturday. nothing compared to the coast, but it shows how far this one is getting inland. i hope the damage in minimal to none for all and everyone is safe.

I like your priorities ... beer, TV and fishing! Hope you're restored soon.

I'm in eastern Connecticut, supposedly on the "bad side" of the storm as far as the wind goes. Well it did blow pretty good but I only lost power fro a few seconds 5 times. But never lost it for good. I think all the constant tree trimming around my area did the trick this time!

Had my generator all set to go but never had to pull that starter cord!

Hoping everyone out there made it through the night and out of this storm this morning. The clean up will take a bit, but thing should return to normal before you know it.

Living in Iowa don't look so bad at times like these.


I'm in Mid-North Indiana (25 miles from Illinois), and never in my 68 yrs have I seen a hurricane on the Atlantic Coast (I'm more than 900 miles from NYC!) reach this far inland. The advance layer of high, thin clouds gradually blotted out the full moon overnight, showers in the works for today, freezing rain in eastern Indiana, snow just over the line in Ohio, and on Lake Michigan (110 miles due north of me, 50mph winds coming down the full 400 mile length of the lake, whipping up 25' seas.

If it's like this in Indiana today, from a tropical hurricane, I cannot begin to imagine what it's like for all those right in the middle of it!

I saw that WV had SNOW from the storm


I saw it on the Weather Channel's live coverage, too. Who new some areas of WV would need snow shovels in October? I'm jealous! -_-
