      We got hit hard here by wind and rain. Luckily, we never lost power and sustained no property damage. I had to work during the storm and the damage was minimal there too. Prayers to everyone else affected by Sandy.
      See ball, hit ball.

          Granny said Sonny stick to your guns if you believe in something no matter what. Because it's better to be hated for who you are than to be loved for who you're not.

          I am an ex expert. I've done this long enough to know that those who think that they know it all, know nothing.

            It will be an interesting rebuilding process... Cities and towns all along the whole northeast coastline will have to redefine how and where they rebuild. Sections of beach along NJ and CT are simply gone.

            It's a good reminder what's important in life.

              I can't even imagine what it's like there. I'm 12+ hours away in Indiana and the winds here are somewhat strong.

                Have you ever been through a tornado?

                  Not really. I've been somewhat close but have never had to take serious shelter from one. The winds are probably similar but a tornado's winds affect such a small amount of area compare to a hurricane.

                    I live on the beach on the north shore of Boston. The winds were 60-80. The tide came up into the high grass. But, you wouldn't known there was a hurricane the next day. I had the tv on while I was working at my desk. I noticed Ch 4 was in front of my house. What they were describing was a lot worse than what was really happening. The news showed the same handful of situations repeatedly all day. On the south shore about 400K lost power for a few hours. The worst damage is always in Scitiuate on the south shore. Why anyone would build their house right up to the edge of the ocean is beyond me. I have forty yards between the ocean and the three foot wall in front of the house.

                      I'm in NYC (Queens), buck was very fortunate not to lose power/internet/phone service. Lots of trees down by me, but a good portion of our large trees were taken out by the tornado in 2010. Still a mess. I work in Manhattan and have been working from home which looks like it will continue for a while since mass transit isn't running and because salt water got onto the tracks in places place, may not be running for another few days. School has been closed all week, but should re-open tomorrow.

                      Have a place on the eastern tip of Long Island (right before Montauk) which is on a strip of land which has the Atlantic Ocean to the south and Long Island Sound to the north. Entire strip of land is probably a mile wide if that. Somehow the house is still there and it didn't even flood!

                        I forgot. Comcast went down. But that happens on sunny days. Since I have USB remote internet access for my laptop and a spare tv antennae it didn't matter.

                          As a survivor of as many as 5 hurricanes churning through my state in the same year (My house directly impacted by 4 of them)..my prayers are with everyone...as the person responsible for Disaster Restoration for a major wireless carrier..and who has had crews in many storms over the last couple of decades...NY got a good whack...but Alabama last year was unreal and the only reason it wasn't the very worst holocaust of a storm since all those poor migrants just "disappeared" in the work camps down in S. Fl. after Andrew, is that The University of Alabama had the courage to listen and keep all those students home the day all those tornados hit.
                          What I am noticing is the media isn't letting it get as hysterical as things got after Katrina (Even months after that storm, my crews had to wear kevlar because they were getting shot at..no kidding).

                            Remarkable to think that the winds here in Indianapolis (shopping carts were rolling all over the place in parking lots) were due to a storm 800+ miles away...

                              The storm wasn't really 800 miles away. The center was. But the storm was 1,000 miles wide. Indiana is only 600 miles from Philadelphia.
