Indeed! Praying everyone who is at risk stays safe and sound - it looks like this could hit really intensely.

I was supposed to fly to NJ tomorrow morning, but that's been called off, thank goodness.

Many friends and relatives out there battening down the hatches and getting ready - I hope everyone stays dry, and keeps their pianos that way too. smile

Mark- make sure you wear a (wet)suit. It's important to make a good first impression. wink

I'm in the blast zone, myself, but if the sea climbs up this high.. time to start building an ark.

If (OK, when!) my power goes out, my piano is one of the things that works just as well before. Unfortunately the rest of my family might not want to gather round and get entertained ...

Take good care, everyone. I live about an hour above NYC along the Hudson and the lights are flickering and wind whipping up now. I got flooded & lost power for 5+ days with Irene last year, and it's supposed to happen again. Stay warm and dry.

I tried to call my family in upstate New York earlier. The land line was busy and I left a message on the cell. There are children in the house so now I'm thinking its too late for calling the landline again.

Post storm update for me (Arlington, VA). Could have been worse. There were a lot fewer power outages and downed trees than a couple of recent much smaller storms. I suspect that's largely due to those other storms having taken their toll.

We actually kept power all the way through which is a first! But our neighbor's tree did come crashing through the fence into our yard - not much damage really though.

And even without power, we did have a mini family piano session. In honor of the storm's name I played and sang selections from Grease. My wife sang along with a couple; my son requested Greased Lightening and my daughter hid in her room!

Power is out for us since late yesterday afternoon. They say it may be back in a few days. frown House temperature was a little cold, 60degF this morning. I played the piano by candlelight last night, which was kind of cool, but not really productive as a practice session. Listening to the wind throughout the night was awesome. Lucky to avoid any flooding, although it's hitting others in the area.

Saw the reports today.. LBI got nailed. The entire island was virtually gone. How'd you fare? Probably still out there responding, I imagine, but give us an update if you get a sec.

Compared the the rest of the Cleveland area we did good. Our basement is wet and the Black River is covering a big chunk of the yard but it's pretty much what we were expecting. I'm happy we've had power the whole time and didn't lose any trees or shingles.


I'll figure it out eventually.
Until then you may want to keep a safe distance.

I think that, while it may help a little, if he had engineered it, why would he hit the states that are already his strongest supporters? I think he would have hit a few red states instead.. wink

I hope your power is back up soon - my boys got treated to a session of us "preparing for the worst, hoping for the best" yesterday, as we stored water and found all the flashlights in the house... lots of wind but only one limb down, and we didn't lose power. I was supposed to travel to Princeton NJ on Monday, but canceled that, and boy am I glad... lots worse there, from what I hear, though not as bad as some.

Here's hoping all the eastern ABF'ers are safe and dry.

I saw pictures tonight on the news. It is hard to comprehend the clean up and restoration ahead. My thoughts and wishes for a speedy recovery,as well as favorable weather, are with all of you effected by the storm.

I've been following the stories on the news - and checking posts here....

Andy - glad you got through it so lightly!

I am stunned that the storm got as far as Cleveland -and I hope you get your power back soon MaryBee. I had not realized that Bessel and LBE are also in Ohio.
Glad you are all safe, but wow, what stress.

As for the folks closer to the coast, what a disheartening mess to deal with - this is not going to be a quick clean up, not by any stretch of the imagination.

Just got power back tonight. Seven days in the dark. But we did have food, water, and my stove is natural gas, so I was able to cook. I missed getting online, playing my (digital) piano, and being able to read or watch tv, but I'm so grateful that I got off so lucky. And thanks to Center Point Energy from Texas who drove all the way to New Jersey to put our poles, transformers and wires back this afternoon.

Now if we can just get rid of the gas lines.

You have yours back Mary Bee? I know Avon Lake still didn't have power in many places when this mornings paper went to print. I think that's the last area in Lorain county still out. I haven't heard lately if all of Cuyahoga was back on yet.


I'll figure it out eventually.
Until then you may want to keep a safe distance.

Yes, we got ours back on Friday afternoon. It was so nice to come home to a warm house again! Then on Sunday night our furnace went out (not related to the storm). So out came the hats and sweatshirts again. smile But my husband got it fixed Monday morning, so we're good again.

I think they said there are were still a few thousand without power as of yesterday. Hopefully those will get taken care of very soon.
