Gusting more now. Karen had to work till 9 and she said the ride home was interesting. I'd say rare gusts peaking at 40-50. Just looked out & the sheds are still there. Also, I was relieved to not see the wicked witch of the west on her broom outside my window.

Well, it's now 10:38 pm, and so far, so good. Have a little rain blowing in the attic windows, and coming down through the bedroom ceiling, but nothing that can't be handles. I have the scanner on the open channel, listening to everything happening in the Lancaster County area, and there is a lot of wire and trees down everywhere! The Police departments are out all over the place closing roads due to numerous flooding. So far, we haven't got called out yet, but I'm ready to go if needed.

As for the winds, let's just say, I thought I was going to be replacing windows with tarps at times. The wind gusts have been tremendous, and are really rattling the windows. We have at least 2 3/4" of rain so far, but thankfully it's all on the outside and not in the basement!

Keep the prayers coming guys, we aren't out of the woods just yet!

Remember the drought last summer? If someone here prayed for rain..... I'd like for you to pray for something for me.

Up in WNY it sure was an awfully rainy day and gusty night but not a lot of troubles.. Some folks up @ Lake Ontario had issues due to the unusual direction of the wind (NE instead of W) There were some pretty sizable waves and their power was out early last night.. We had a few surges but nothing off here.. I've been watching the news and the awful damage downstate and in NJ.. Thankfully storms like this happen very rarely and we haven't had too many fatalities!

These things are reminders of just how small and insignificant we all really are.. :tapping_fingers:

In NE CT most are without power but I got lucky and it hasn't gone down. Doesn't seem bad out so, I'm loaning generators to friends and selling them the gas that I had stock piled. 17 Months unemployed, I can't afford to give it away. There are fires along the coast that were burning since last night. The fire fighters can't get to them. One fire fighter was killed in one incident. Its worse the closer you get to NYC.

Good Luck to all.

We weathered the storm just fine !! We did not even lose power except for a very short time.

I haven't ventured to far outside yet, but all looks good from what I can see.

2:31 p.m. Monday. Power goes out with a tree on the line. Just got it back a little bit ago. 6 inches of water in the basement due to faulty caulking but that has drained and dried up. This morning we went for a drive and got some breakfast and a few other things. I'll upload pics later. My brother on the fire department stayed there last night snce he had power up there. A big, big tree uprooted in the field behind our house so we're gonna get the two chainsaws and help with the cutting up of that most likely. Maybe bring the 2520 home to drag some trees around. Also have some litter and mud to clean up. Still raining a bit so clean up will start when that's done. So far 7 inches of rain.

I lost power last night at about 7:45. We have the generator but not everything works. The well is something that doesn't work. I had breakfast at neighbor Dave's.

The storm was mild, windy, but not much rain. No real damage.

Man was that ever a hell of a storm.The eye wall went directly over us.I think that actually spared us tho,as we didn't lose power and had minimal water damage.Those people north of us we can only pray for.I see where the storm is reaching way out to Indiana,WOW..............Don't want to experience that ever again

The storm is past us, and everything is still intact! No damage to our house, and the house up the street that we are wanting to buy, is still standing as well. Man, what a storm, although I was expecting a lot worse. If you judged the storm by it's size, and listened to the meteorologists predictions, you'd have thought that PA, NY, NJ, MD and DE will be lucky if they are still on the map after it's all over. Well, we're still here, and still going strong.

Glad to see everyone in the effected states and surrounding areas have all checked in and are doing well. We seem to all have dodged the bullet, and are able to walk away from it with only minor damage, but without injury!

On behalf of Lancaster County, I want to Thank everyone for all the prayers and thoughts that each of you guys gave. Just another deffinite way of showing that we truely are family, and when we all come together as brothers and sisters, we, as a group, are Mighty!! :thumbs:

We had less than expected for waves at the shoreline today in WI, but 5 miles out, WHOA!
