    Anyone heard from Kath? I suspect she is snowed in and without power, but hopefully warm and snug.

    I checked the local paper where Kat lives. Not a whole lot of snow but some power outages. Sent an email to see if she gets it.

    Edit: She just checked in and all is well.

    We kept power, though many in the county were without. Despite our fondest wishes, snow hit the higher elevations only. Back to school for us [​IMG]

    Awww, no Sandy Day for you. :p

    Seriously, I'm glad to hear you were relatively unscathed by this monster...so many were not so lucky. :(

    Isn't that the truth. It helps to hear that folks are making it through this. Check on your neighbors if you can, especially the elderly.

    Good to hear you're ok and doing fine. Sorry about the school days, but there will surely be another storm and closure later. Hopefully not too many. Late June school makeup days are a drag.

    Ain't it the truth. The stuff that was happening at this time last night, I could not dream that we would have so little impact comparatively. It was flat scary. I can't imagine what was going on North of here. Or how it is there now.

    I know what it's like when all hell breaks loose here with a freak storm or earthquake. Things get much more fundamental. Make sure your family is ok, then check on your neighbors. The system will catch up to you, hopefully.

    I'm wondering if this is basically the new normal-last year about this time we had been without power for 5 days due to the October snowstorm/Noreaster, and now here we are again. Not looking to turn this into a climate change debate as it is the Inglenook after all, but seriously, if the Northeast is going to get hammered at least once a year with these kinds of storms, there are going to be some serious economic impacts. Anyway, hanging on with genny power for now, but gotta go back to work today. I can send my wife and the baby to my parents (they got power back last night) but I'll have to come up here every ten hours or so to keep the sumps emptied and the food cold...Going to be a long week...

    Very little damage in western NY, despite our pretty wild marine forecasts. No idea what peak wave heights were, but winds a little ways back from the lake didn't top 35.

    Add the Spring 2010 monsoon to that list. First and only time that our sump pump couldn't keep up running constantly. Record flood levels in NE.

    Same here. We had 50 MPH winds overnight Monday but living near the lake thats quite common. No power loss and little if any damage. Any damage that did occur was due to NE winds. Our big winds are normlly out of the west. Was really a non event here.

    Boo, I know that feeling, but that's better than hearing it will be a week later.

    she's about 5 hours drive under normal conditions to her school from here, we're just north of lynchburg va. we got a pretty heavy wind that night but very little rain. overall we have been lucky the mountains to my northwest (blue ridge) have snow on them, but we didnt get any. was just a bit on the cold side for about 48 hours. i feel exceedingly lucky, obviously at my office things are hopping as so many folks are having power difficulties getting lots of calls about how to use a genny for the pellet stove , battery backup questions and the like. just walked a guy through areboot on his control board due to power spiking from a genny, he was lucky , no surge protection and his generator was sputtering sending uneven power to his board. fortunately the board took the reboot and is now working normally again, he's on his way to the store to get a surge protector as i type this im sure.
