You beat me to it. Now that you're all coming into a new day things will all start to show. Do they have lots of Red Cross around you set up? They do such wonderful things in situations like this. DH was part of the recovery and restoration crew here after the cyclone so I was lucky to have the help of neighbours in getting things cleaned up here, but it was nothing compared to what I'm seeing on tv for you guys.

It would appear we've escaped the worst of it. I'm in Virginia, and Sandy changed her course just enough to give us just a glancing blow. I have leaves stripped from the trees, but nothing major that I can see. Will go out and look over the roof and shutters once it gets a bit lighter, but don't see any debri. (our shutters have an annoying habit of coming off....one.at.a.time.

Hi everyone,

We seemed to have escaped unscathed. Some branches down and still have power. We were on the right side of the storm so we mostly got the high winds and the rain wasn't as bad as expected. Winds are till at 50 mph but don't seem as bad as yesterday.

Working from home again today since they are still clearing the roads. Figured why get in the way of repairs when I am fortunate to be able to WFH.

Stephanie, glad you and Dave are ok as well.

Morning...

Glad everyone is ok....and still has power.

We are good here, we did get some winds but I dont think what they were projecting. So we are good here. Lake Michigan is still bad as of this morning. I think that Indiana got most of the high winds that they were tell us we were going to get....from the newscast it seemed really bad there.

Hopefully the worst is over and we can get back to "normal"..

Stephanie: It sounds like Castaway got hit pretty bad...any news if your going there or not?

Have a great time on your trip enjoy and remember we want pictures and reports.....

Thumbs up An actual sunrise at last

There was an actual sunrise here in VA Beach this morning! Sure was great to see a little sun. We hadn't seen any since we were in Nassau on Wed.! The winds weren't too terrible around here either. Lots of rain and the tidal surge caused lots of flooding. No where for the water to go! The back side of John's neighborhood is impassable. There is a park next to John's house and that parking lot has been full the last couple of days. They park and wade home--sad, especially as it's not been all that warm (high's 50-60 here). When I call home (CA) I hear how it's sunny and 80 degrees--seems strange when it's so differemt here I'm hoping I'll be able to get outside for a walk today--it's nearly a week since I've been out there!

When I was growing up we had a summer cottage in northern Indiana (about an hour or so from Chicago--depending on traffic). I remember getting a lot of wind damage and downed trees in that area--Angie

Well thank goodness today is over. Was a crazy day at work.

Tomorrow we are closing the office a little early. A couple of the doctors I work for want to go trick-or-treating with their kids, so they shortend their schedules..so the phones go over to service @ 3:30...then we can leave
Now the bad new's, my boss wants us to all dress up....I am not a halloween person, I dont have that oh I can dress as this or that....hate it....
So now I have to struggle tonite and figure out what I have around the house that I can dress up in...

So I think what I may do..Wally has a Harley, so I'm gonna be a Harley Chick..I'm going to wear, Jeans and a biker T-shirt and one of his leather vests thats about as much as I will do....

I'm going to bring my camera and take pictures of all of us....it should be fun, I will post so you can see us

You can always throw a sheet over you with some holes cut out and be a ghost.

Glad to hear that everyone has fared well, too.

Made it to work today. Still a lot of traffic lights out and road closures. Only took me an extra 10 minutes so it was a good morning.
