Wind and rain have picked up here. Dinner is being consummed now and I've got a couple of books to read. We've lost a couple of trees and 1/2 the village is without power from a tree.

Stay safe all!

Lost power at 6, thankfully I had made dinner at 4. Won't post much because I don't want to kill my battery in my phone.

Lost 2 trees on the side of the house. Both we knew would come down. Thankfully they fell away from the house.

RV is in the field away from trees and gassed up and ready to go so we can move it back up to the house and live in it until power is restored. Just waiting for the winds to die down.

Kids are having a blast playing in the dark. DH and I are going to boil water on the Coleman stove so we can do dishes and have tea.

Major cleanup ahead when Sandy goes away. Hopefully we will be spared the brunt so we can help others.

Will touch base tomorrow!

Stay safe everyone!!!

Lost power for a couple hours, thank goodness I made dinner early. School has been cancelled here for tomorrow here. Boss called earlier, he said he will call me tomorrow. We have lost one tree in the way back of the yard, I am still nervous about the rest.

Glad to hear everyone is doing okay.

Got the call around 5:30, no school tomorrow. The wind gusts are supposed to continue through the night. Hoping we're done with the worst of it.

Crazy here. I actually braved the weather to get to work. A nurses job is never done. I just want to be able to get home in the am.

I second that! I know we had wind from the storm for 2 full days while it was moving up way to the east of Florida. Stay safe and let us know how you are doing as you can.

It appears that the worst is over for us - still strong winds, and some rain, but when i took the dog out, I could actually see the moon behind the clouds.
My sister in PA has had it much worse, but she's safe. We were so very lucky - clearly being watched over!!

I am an RN in an operating room and I was in a meeting at 1 when the big boss walked by and we said we were no essential and can we go home jokingly. She laughed and said no. Then she got a call and told us to go home. Yah! That will never happen again.

Lost power for a little over an hour. Not bad.

Not sure how it happened but we lucked out. No damage, no power outage, no water (in the basement - yet, but it is still raining!). I'm so thankful!

After all we went through, I can see some blue sky this morning and we have school. Hope everyone has a safe day.
