I came on to see how everyone fared with the storm. I'm watching the news now and even here in Ohio there are buildings with roofs torn off and flooding and roads closed. Schools are closed and they are asking people to stay home from work today. It's been raining here pretty steadily since Friday, so we're pretty saturated.

Glad to see some of you came out pretty well and with your power intact! My DD lost power last night, but only for about 6 hours. New York City really got hit hard! And I heard 16 people have died. Still praying for everyone on the east coast!

ETA: And I really hope everyone who is flying out soon are able to do so on time!!!

Its so good to see ya'll reporting in. And okay!! Watching the news has been so disheartening.
They know me in a way no one ever has...They open me to things I never knew existed...They drive me to insanity and push me to my depts...They are the beat of my heart, the pulse of my veins, and the energy in my soul.....They are my kids.

JetBlue posted they will allow "no service fee" refunds/ticket exchanges and waive fare differences for the affected cities from 10/28 to 10/31, so I guess they figure they can catch up in time

Hi everyone we made out fine. Never lost power and nothing flooded. So thankful for all the prayers for the east coast. So glad to read everyone made out ok. I kept busy cutting out Mickey heads for window decorations. Not sure what exactly I'm going to do with them but it was fun also made a list of all the rides we want to hit each day. DD wants me to tell you all we also played boggle. Hope I keep reading good reports from others. Still praying.

We were supposed to get high winds and lots of rain. We got both but not as much as predicted. Only damage was we lost a few shingles but that's okay because the roof is being done this week anyways. I hope everyone made out okay.

I'm still a bit excited because I can do online check in today.

We are flying out Friday morning. Not sure how that will work. Hope our flight isn't cancelled. If so, we are thinking of just driving. We will see.

We made it ok. Lots of rain and wind, but we still have power and the water in the backyard is going down. My family in NJ is ok. My brother, dad, and mom (all in different places) have different amounts of damage. Surprisely, my dad being right near Altantic City didn't lose power and had no damage. My brother and mom who live farther away had more storm damage. Mom has no power and my brother's shingles ripped off the roof which lead to some leaks in the roof, but they have power and will be ok.

Hope everyone hangs in there.

Hi there just checking in. We are ok. Pretty scary last few days. We had tree split then fall just inches from our door then had water rise to 3rd step of house but thank God went no further and our house survived and we are all safe and secure. Winds have been incredible here and I'm just amazed that through it all we didn't make out worse. I am feeling ver blesses and thankful. But there is total devastation in Ocean City and destruction all around us. Still I thank God for soaring us the worst. Now I am really ready for Disney and some much needed fun and family time. My daughter in Pensacola has been so worried about us and everyone here but we are just fine.

Checking in...glad to see others also checking in and doing ok. We didn't lose power but DD16 school did as well as the mall for a few hours yesterday. Was in MB over the weekend and it was definitely rough seas. So sad for those up north... to them. So far my family in Jersey has done OK but still trying to locate my cousin in the Bronx.

Take care!

Hope everyone is doing ok!

I live in Mass and we got hit hard, but didn't lose power or anything. Our phone wasn't working but now it's fine. Some of my town lost power and we haven't had school for the past two days.

Anyone in NY or New Jersey, be safe!

We are in Northern VA and we got lots of rain and heavy wind but we did not lose power at all and no damage.
I hope and pray that everyone else is ok too.

We're supposed to be flying out this Thursday night and I'm not sure what will happen. Right now, SW flights for tomorrow to MCO are showing on time so I'm just hopeful.

Glad to hear you all seem to be doing OK, here's hoping the worst is over and that airlines get back to normal soon enough for all your trips.

I realise I haven't posted my ADRs so here goes!

15/11 10.20 Crystal Palace
16/11 8.10 Chef Mickey. 7.50 Garden Grill
17/11 DH's 40th Birthday! 12.00 Mama Melrose. 7.00. CRT
19/11 10.30 Tusker House
20/11 5.30 Be Our Guest
21/1110.20 Crystal Palace

Going to try and book my preferred viewings for Wishes and Illuminations today!
Have started my packing list but I won't start packing until a day or two before we leave - wish I had a better idea what the weather is going to be like! I'm hoping for a bit of winter sun - it's gone really cold here the last week or so (I know I shouldn't complain after the weather you've all had!)

Me, DH, and DD (10) DD (6)
