Goodmorning guys, Checking in from Boston with little to none noticable damage. Not sure if all were as fortunate. From news reports, some may have been hit quite hard. How are you and yours today?

We made it thru with minimal damage that I found so far. It is extremely quiet this morning without the wind howling around the house corners.
There are supposed to be several thousand without electric this morning in the county. Thankfully we never lost ours.

I'm north/east of Pittsburgh and, near as I can tell, no damage in the neighborhood. I even slept through the night so the wind probably didn't get that bad. I texted my wife at work and she said that aside from a little water on the roads, all is well. I'll know more when it's light out but I took a walk around with a flashlight this morning and everything looks normal. Thank the good Lord for that! Just pray for our neighbors to the east as things look pretty bad out there. New York City especially with 50 buildings going up in flames, subways and tunnels flooded. It's just not a good situation. I know Pittsburgh has the usual places flooded. Their big concern is land slides. If any of you have ever been to the area, you know why. I hope everyone else came through this ok.

Despite howling winds and rain all yesterday afternoon and evening the lights didn't even flicker. I hope everyone else fairs as well. New Jersey and New York look to have taken the brunt of this one.

Lights did the blinky thing a few times and later the wind woke me a couple of times, but all seems to be still standing this morning. Reports of several trees down and some minor flooding, but beyond that, it's just raining now.

Hope everyone faired as well.

The worst of the storm seems to have gone to our South. I slept through the night as well, so it must not have been too bad. Just raining now. The drive into work was uneventful too.

Called, George "NutnDun" this morning and he said they came thru it pretty good. They had a little water blow in around the basement door, but nothing like the last time they got flooded out.

Glad to hear so far everyone came thru the storm with little damage.

We fared pretty well. Lots of wind the usual trees and limbs on fences, some standing water on the roads and a dusting of snow this morning. 37 F outside right now, sheesh it was 82 Friday when I was baling. Hope everybody comes thru o.k.

Just saw a picture of a tanker ship with the bow on the shore. Quite a site.

Didn't check the rain gauge yet today, but I only had 3" by 5:30PM yesterday here in Gettysburg. Turned out better than I expected. Lights didn't even flicker although we had some pretty impressive gusts of wind that made the house shudder. Hope everyone is staying safe and as dry as they can.

Update..at the end of it all I only had 5" or so and no wind damage. Feeling pretty lucky. Wish the best to anyone out there still struggling.

Here's a few pics. I'll get some more this afternoon. I'm just a few miles from the bridge and it was pretty high up.
