Oh, Bridget, so sorry you haven't been able to return home yet. We're just getting the tail end of Sandy, just rain, rain, rain. It's not moving fast but it is diminishing so we have no damage anywhere nearby. A good effect is that our dry wetlands and swamps have had some degree of water replenished.
Stay safe

I'm glad you are safe. Sorry you cannot get home.

Any word on your house? Pets?

My son texted this am, his MIL and son in Manhattan also still without power, heat or cell and that more cell towers will fail as the generators run out of fuel.

Bridget how are you.? The damage looks bad in Altantic city and the noreasterner is hitting now on top of everything.

I just got power back today at 4pm, about 10 days but otherwise am ok.
Still over 200,000 in my area without power. Lots of trees down on houses and cars but we were lucky and did not get hit.
I hope everyone makes it through the new storm safely.

I am sorry to see you folks hit by this one-two punch of weather; can't imagine such cold without electricity, especially in those areas hardest hit. by Sandy... Am grateful to have a woodstove at least, but will be thinking about that air conditioner come next hurricane season!
I hope everything calms down and warms up for ya'll soon!

Thanks for your welcome back. I'm ok and did not lose power again. I feel very fortunate to have no real losses, except for spoiled food and time. I am still in emergency mode and I'm sure it will take time to get back to normal. Other them being slightly crazed all is well. It looks like all the snow is melting. Gas lines are almost back to normal. Thinking hard about getting a generator.

I have a few areas in the garden I left in mid reworking. It is supposed to be in the 60's
tomorrow so I'm hoping I can still get a few things in the ground.
It looks like all the rest of the new plantings are ok.

Did anyone hear from Bridget? She is in a very vulnerable hard hit area near Atlantic City.
I think the noreaster did more damage to the coast.
