Well compared to many other places I don't consider myself ina bad situation. I left for work this morning and it was pitch black (4:30 am) so I couldn't see any real obvious effects. My fiance left bout 8:30 and same situation...no big puddles or anything real bad. She stopped home about noon and the entire front yard and driveway were under water. Alota the neighbors had leaves out by the road and I'm guessing the storm sewers either got plugged or just couldn't handle all the overload of water. It has subsided some already by the time I got home to take pics. This is where we stand now.....still, very lucky compared to the many under "feet" of water.....

Had a few up to 5" branches out of the white pines and oak and 4 big Johnny Bucket loads of twiggy stuff. The driveway/parking area is covered with spruce needles (these usually fall in neighbor's yard) and it's too windy yet to blow them into a pile. One electric "flicker" throughout the entire storm and that was it... Oh yeah, one piece of soffet blew off the bedroom area. Nothing else, we wuz lucky again! No pix, too boring!:D

That's ok, you are lucky being where your at....I'm north east of Buffalo and I believe the only reason we got what we did is because of lake Erie & Ontario.....Glad your doing well tho and the damage wasn't worse!!

I seen those earlier. Great pics JDGuy, that tree is huge, some serious rushing water too. I don't know how familiar you are with NY but I passed Silvercreek on the I90 today and it was flooded right over, massive amounts of water....

I guess the folks in your neighborhood didn't heed the warning to clean the leaves away for storm drains. That causes more street flooding than anything!

We had strong winds yesterday and overnight. Kathy heard a bang last night after dark, I was not going out to see. Well not sure if she heard this on the shed in front of the house

This big one missing my brothers pole barn and his house

or possibly this one which is right next to the house

No orange machinery appears to be hurt.

Sure felt and looked like winter today with the winds howling and every once in a while a bunch of hard falling, wet snow would come down.

Hope everyone out there in GTTalk is OK

Good thing I got a second chainsaw. The water was up to 5-6 inches in the basement looking at some wooden stands after the water went way down.
