Stay safe everyone! Here in upstate NY we’re seeing some of the effects, but nothing out of the ordinary so far.

It was scary, but I had few problems.  Just tree damage and local flooding.

Could have been Much worse!  The Cows Protected Me!!

Highways are closed, so I can’t get out of my neighborhood - no employment for me today (or at least not until after lunch!)

Nasty night though…  I don’t want to go on that ride ever again

I made it through OK.  We never lost power here in my neighborhood in NY City.  It was mostly over by the time I got offline last night around 10:30pm, and the wind gusts were pretty tame by then, and it had stopped raining.

So far today I haven’t been out, but it was just raining lightly earlier, and now it looks as though the rain has stopped.  From what I’ve seen online there was major flooding across the shoreline, and only 2 places where there were blackouts, owing to an explosion in a substation.

Upstate / Central NY through to the Southern Tier appear to have been spared- some decent wind, but not bad at all. The scenes and reports coming out of CNN about NYC, Delaware, NJ, WV, Virginia, and other locations are absolutely mind boggling though.

Hitting the Maritimes now. We’re getting a scary thunderstorm quite a bit worse than our rare summer ones. Hope everyone to our south is coping okay.

I hope Misty Whisky is safe; I’m pretty sure she’s on Long Island and works in the City.

Here in Central Massachusetts,  the rain was worse late yesterday afternoon than it was any time on Monday, with some roadway flooding.  Winds were strong on Monday, but not extreme, with 50 mph gusts…

Family member from the Nassau/Suffolk border of LI called to tell me power is back on at home so I’m hoping its a sign they’re turning the corner.

Still missing some folks. I hope all are well and were prepared when the Storm came in.

Just a quick report from Bayshore, Long Island… Storm was not very impressive, I’ve been in worse weather at sea in a boat…. But even though the storm was downgraded by the time it made landfall, everything here is a mess.
The waterfront area of my town was flooded, some boats washed ashore, docks swept away and a bunch of homes were severely damaged… I spent most of the day of the hurricane outside, but it was really not so bad in regards to the wind… The real problems for Long Island was mostly from storm surge and strong wind gusts… I’ve been driving around a lot and checking out the damage… 90% of my town appears to be without power, but from what I’ve seen, it looks like 75% of the damages could have been avoided with proper maintanance and better planning. I probably will not have power for another week, all the gas stations are closed or running out of fuel so pretty soon it won’t even matter if you have a generator or not, you will be in the dark like everyone else…  I hope the rest of you came through this okay… I’ll try and post some of my pix from the storm next time I’m near a computer attached a working Internet connection.
Good luck to all… Over and out till later…-Vic
