Thanks for the well wishes! So far nothing to write home about up here in our neck of the woods in Western MA. Hopefully it'll stay that way.

Oh no, Sandy! I hear they keep recycling common names, until they become a big enough storm to be noticed. This one will retire your name for sure, due to all they hype, but hopefully it won't have the infamy of some of the others. Knock on wood!

A lot of power outages here in CT and flooding along the shore from the tidal surge. The farther down LI sound the worse the flooding. Norwich, where I live, did not fare badly. The Thames river is tidal and the harbor did come up over the banks. No loss of life and so far as I know no big property loss.

Out of power here in the MidHudson Valley for a couple of days but no real damage except by the Hudson River.
My grandson's great-great-aunt lost the family summer place in the fire at Breezy Point. Such a shame--it was the center of all his 'other' family's get-togethers.

Hope everyone gets their power back soon. I get very cranky without it.

Thanks for the updates. It sounds like the fire Ingrid mentions damaged property but not people and I'm thankful for that. Hopefully it won't be long until the power is back on for everyone.

Wonderful to hear that everyone is okay.

I remember when Hurricane Hugo came through Charlotte, back in 89. My boys and I were living with my parents at the time, and we endured about a week without power. We were lucky, because my parents had a fireplace, which we used for cooking. It was in September, so it wasn't hot or cold outside, so the temperatures were good.

We played a lot of board games, and talked a lot.

When the power came back on, we were actually kinda disappointed. Everyone wandered off into their own electrical worlds after that. The boys were on the Nintendo, my parents were cooking, and glued to the tv, and I was busy washing clothes.
