I feel for the shoreline members of CT. Been watching the news for most of the day and they are getting pounded. There has been minimal rain here but sustained wind. Trees down all around me. I have to go to work at 11 tonight also to deal with this beast. Good luck everyone. Stay safe
pretty calm here now. had some big gusts around 5pm, lost cable @430 power was out @515 genny going strong on the whole house..very warm, pushing 69, not much wind and the occasional down pour, so...is that it? In typical national grid rehoboth fashion the power should be on again by sunday...should i cancel work fpr tomprrow in central mass or not?
smooth sailing here , so far. havent lost anything
Actually the OAK keeps the house more comfortable by not sending heated ROOM air up the flue pipe. I would really like to get some Selkirk DT venting. That is the way to go because it heats the OAK air! I do sell it!
Well with down trees and no power, it may be hard to fix a pellet stove by testing parts that work on AC?
I still have power and cable. Just a couple big limbs broke on our Flowering Bradford Pear Tree. It was the perfectly shaped tree but not the perfect tree because it gets top heavy with age. :-(
Calming down in Eastern CT. Supposed to blow 30 the rest of tonight and drop to the 20s tomorrow. If you live by the shore, the storm surge is still coming, another hour before high tide in CT. Everyone stay safe, it's not over yet just not as crazy.
I post all is smooth here, and BOOM power goes out. on genny power now. Strange its dead calm outside like a summer night
2 3/4" of rain and fairly stiff wind with gusts to 45 here. Power hasn't even flickered. I got the temp in the house to "nursing home" levels in anticipation of a power outage. Generator was ready to power various items including my box fan to extract heat from the gas fireplace if need be. I was excited for the challenge of a somewhat dangerous weather event, with all the hype, but it hasn't happened yet.
Then I see some of the damage you guys have reported and catch bits and pieces on TV and it puts an unsettling perspective on things. Hope you and yours are safe.
We got it all going on here right now, low 30's rain, thunder lightning snow wind, power flickers once but still have it. Off to bed see what happens through the night.
Good wishes going out to all close to the storm.
Hope everyone is hanging in there, were getting pounded in northern MD. High winds, and heavy rain. The power has gone out about 20 times for a few seconds and comes back on, so we are doing okay, thank you lord. I have never seen a storm like this before, does make you a little on the edge.
Same here, except the rain seems to be cutting back. The winds are really ripping - holding in the 30 mph area and gusting to 55 mph. We have some very large trees which are too close to our house for this wind. I'm torn between just going to bed or staying up in case something happens.
Hope everyone is doing OK.
Hang in there folks and best of luck!
Been running on battery back up for 3 hrs now...only have cell service.
hitch im like you with the winds ripping I can not sleep, and i keep checking on things here at the house. stay safe
High wind warning in Pittsburgh PA area has been cancelled. Several inches in the rain gauge. Not over yet, but nice that things are calming down here (still waiting on the light of day to access). Hope all are safe and warm!
Burned any 'sets yet?
Actually went like the typical trip through the edge of a hurricane. Stuff gets thrown around-including me when i went flying out of my chair a couple of times. I've gone through the middle of a few big ones. The bad part was whatever happens on the way in is going to happen all over again on the way out. I do have a mess to clean up.
Sis-inlaw has a cottage at Chalker Beach Old Saybrook, saw some were burning out of control, fire crews could not get in, her house is a few blocks away from the fire, she must be a wreck!
Im waiting for the sun to come up but from what i can see everything looks good around my house. I dont see any damage on my house or any of my neighbors. Rain is down to a drizzle now and the winds are nearly calm. Kept power the entire night without a flicker. Temp dropped to 39 this morning but the p61 kept me nice and toasty, nearly too toasty.
Did you guys leave your stoves on through the storm?
I was afraid to run it with sustained 35-40 mph and gusts to 70.
Is there a problem with runniny the stove in high winds?
Yeah..I was walking around last night at 11 and the moon was peaking out through all the clouds whipping past, a very calm tropical evening. Still no power. Genny running the whole house and my neighbors house, funny, everytime the coffee pot warms I can hear the genny dip outside.
Wind just picked up something crazy, absolutely pouring right now, running all of the office computers and my internet ready TV through my tablet's 4G connection...love technology!
People were posting links to outage maps earlier - this is my favorite since it rolls everything into one interface:
That's probably 45 minutes from me. I'd guess they're ok? It hasn't amounted to much here, rain on and off and moderately strong winds. It is supposed to come right through this area late tonight and tomorrow morning but they're saying it'll be pretty dead by then, winds only up into the 20's.
It is 29 degrees this morning and about 8" of snow on the ground in Southwest Virginia this a.m. Never would have imagined weather like this before Halloween.
