    As I watch storm coverage on Sandy, I'm becoming a bit concerned about members in it's path. Anyone willing, just let us know you're still ok. Thanks. A C

    Winds hittin 50 here already and we are a day away from the "Our Storm". But massive flooding here and been raining since Friday evening. Not gonna stop until Thursday. Halloween has been moved to the weekend and most schools have already canceled school for tomorrow.

    The Cold front is passing through us and colliding with Sandy.

    Just put my plastic up around my porch (wood storage) and the trampoline ($300) went through a section. :(

    Sounds terrible out there. And i am getting it easy compared to those in the path. God bless'em.

    We were down for a while but now back up on the generator-can't believe the destruction in the tri-state area. We're safe, we just need to keep the food cold and the sump pumps running until the power comes back...

    We've still got power & it only "blinked" once. Too dark out there to see what kind of havoc she created. Work is open, but we shall see if we can get there...

    All is good here in south jersey. Some minor flooding and plenty of trees down. Down the shore is a different story though. All barrier islands were pretty much under water by yesterday eve. Dry docked boats were floatin down the road. Prayin for the folks that stayed down there to ride out the storm, it looks pretty bad.

    Depending on where you're at in the pines I'm about 80-100 miles north/northwest of you and it ain't pretty up here. Waiting for sun to come up to see how bad, but suffice it to say there was a fireworks show on the horizon all last night with the wires going down and transformers blowing up. Power is going to be out for a LONG time...

    Never lost power, flickered a couple times. Just some small branches down.

    The CT shoreline is in bad shape due to flooding.

    Fine here in central upstate NY. Lost power around 730 pm, got it back around 3am. Great work by lines crews, expected to be without for days. Let the fire go out during the worst of it, the wind was really howling, 60 mph, and it wasn't that cold in the house. Woke up this morning to eerie calm, but the winds are starting to pick back up a bit. Got the stove going now.

    So far just some wind up in Northern NY, some people in our town lost power but we never did, wind advisory on for today so it looks like we'll be okay.

    I have relatives in NJ, any info on Nutley NJ?

    NH is still here....you'd think you could at least get a day off out of a massive weather event....nothin. Be safe people in the danger zone....(cue Top Gun Theme).

    Seem to be 20 mi from the track.

    Folks across the street never lost power....
    we've been down since 5pm Monday.
    House in one piece....I'll take it.
    FYI 5 gal of gas = 40 hrs of idle on a HF genny,
    But you'll have to clean the plug.

    Anybody looking for a few hundred new in the box and "lightly" used generators can find them on the MD/DC/VA craigslist.

    Good to hear many seem to have weathered the storm well. I just don't trust the news reports so much. Keep us updated as things go along, & thanks. A C

    Faired pretty well here compared to our Southern Ct. neighbors. Wind just about ripped my Ash trees out by the roots....they are now hung up in other trees, got a pro coming to give an estimate sometime today. My shed got beat up a little bit, but we are lucky considering what could have been....still gusting out there, hopefully nothing else happens. Click on the pic.
