    Sandy...

    How did you fare??? Here in the ctr of the island got alot of winds, in all directions
    Lickily, no other damage . How about by you?

    My dh says ive got it really bad when the showed a storm screen with mottled blue, green and aqua and i said, looks like nice fabric.

    Our prayers go out to you and your families for a speedy cleanup, and hope you lost a minimamal of your personal items..

    I'm in upstate NY near Lake Ontario. We had high winds and rain but no damage to speak of. I'm sure some people around here lost trees and power, but as for me, we faired pretty well. Went out this morning and cleaned up the whips from the neighbors weeping willow tree. Hope everyone else is safe.

    I Live in the NE corner of Pa. We had some wind, a minimal amount of rain, no flooding and no loss of power. We lucked out. Its so sad to see all the destruction and homes lost as well as some lives. Prayers to those effected by this storm.

    Folks in WV and VA mountains and even NC are not out of the woods yet as flash flooding and general flooding due to the snow melt will pose problems for those folks. It isn't over yet.

    I am still without power in my country house in Sullivan County, NY. In the city, we have friends (husband, wife, daughter, dog) with us because they have no power and live on the 12th floor.

    I lucked out. Had electric within 24 hours. Still have no heat, or hot water, and got cable back last night.. As for my offices.. That is another story. One in valley stream is functional, and Far Rock might never be.. My staff is split. Some got nothing, and the others are still pumping out.. I don't have a clue where I will be going, as I only have 1/4 tank.. Life is still good..

    We got hit hard in Brooklyn (Canarsie). Jamaica Bay basically surged up to our house. Within minutes, we got 3 feet of water on the first floor, which is my in-laws apt. It's been really difficult on my 83y.o. FIL who has beginning of dementia. He just can't understand why we are throwing so much stuff out. He's gonna have a really hard day tomorrow when my husband's cousin comes to start cutting our walls up to get rid of mold. I've tried to explain to him what is going to happen and why, but it's difficult for him to grasp something abstract that you can't actually see.

    Please pray for my family, and our neighborhood. It's been a tough time for everyone. It's been completely overwhelming, but I feel we made a bit of progress today. Many have it much worse than us. We have electric, water, and got our heat back. We'll be a little cramped for a while with the four of us in this one apt.

    Here's a picture of the outside and inside the house. Fortunately, the water drained from the street and the house that first night. Our sump pump broke, so we had to get the water from under the house pumped out.
