We Survived Sandy

Just a quick note for you folks wondering how we weathered the storm.

Power is out, but we have a generator. A tree fell across the street from us and took out a transformer around 7:15 last night. It was arcing quite a bit throughout the night, which made for some loud and bright displays. It's still raining, but the wind has calmed.

More later.

I hope the rest of you in Sandy's path fared well, too.

I was thinking about you when I heard there was 6 ft of snow in the Appalachian Mountains, but I wasn't sure if you were near there or not

Good that you are safe, and with your own power

We are east of the mountains, so no snow here.

Glad to hear you are ok. I spent yesterday glued in front of the TV and thinking of all the poor people affected.
Weird how North America seems to get pummeled by nature from both sides of the coast. We had the quake, you guys get a monster storm...

We've been thinking of you. Thank you for posting up that you are doing okay.

I think we are lucky or spoiled (not sure which) on the West coast. Our storms are never as bad as they are back East.

Glad to hear you are Ok Kathy, being on the other side of the world and geographically challenged I'm unsure who's in the path, but have been watching the aftermath on tv and hoping to hear that everyone is safe.

Glad things are calm your way!

We got a dusting of snow, cold winds, and temps in the 30s here, unlike our neighbors in Columbus, Ohio who got 2.5 feet of snow or our friends in Charleston, WV with 3 feet! Unbelievable...

My thoughts and heart go out to all those affected by the storm on the coast, particularly those who lost everything.

Thanks for caring, folks. It's hard to know where all of the bloggers are located. Hopefully everyone is safe.

Glad you are okay! I can't believe the devastation & pray for everyone that they come through this.
