Post away, Patty. I'd love to see some pics from folks I know rather than just TV stuff.

It looks like everyone checking in has been lucky with the power outages not lasting long so far.

It feels like October breezes outside. Here is a shot of my yard and 2 of the sky. The water has receded about 2 feet already. The water was so high it was going into parked cars and low trucks.

Thank you.

The water was so high it was going into parked cars and low trucks.
BUT the wind is kicking up to 20 MPH now from the west and causing waves in the water that is left.

Attachment 11946Here is the picture. This tree snapped and left only a tall bare trunk still planted. To the right of that is another tree that fell. It kinda looks like a bush because this view shows the top of the tree only.

Heartbreaking. Hate to see the old trees go.

A couple years ago we had the most beautiful blue spruce, White House Christmas tree worthy, and came back from vacation to find out it was gone from a tornado. Wonderful friends and neighbors had cut it up and removed it.

Hopefully there is no more destruction.

We lost power about 1 am this morning and spent most of the day without it. It finally came back on around 6 pm tonight. Read my book, took a nap, brought in the camping lantern and got it ready for tonight but didn't need it. We had no flooding. I think the fact that it arrived at low tide saved our area a lot of flooding problems. Mostly it was just downed trees and power outages. With Isabel in '03 the storm surge took out water treatment plants and we couldn't drink the water. Didn't have that this time. While we had about 24 hrs of heavy winds and rain, all in all it was nothing like what was hyped for our area.

I'm still waiting to hear from a friend in NJ. Hopefully I'll be able to reach her in the morning.

There was a James Bond marathon on cable. It kept us entertained for a couple of hours.
