    Default Did You All Taste FrankenStorm?

    Just checkin in. Ohio had lots of wind..no damage or power outages in Dayton area.

    How did our NYers, NJers, PAers VAers, etc, fare?
    Love, Sally

    Hi Sally,

    Boston got rain and big wind over many hours. Not as bad here as forecast. We have large tree branches that snapped off. No personal damage or loss of services.

    I wonder how Paj is?

    Even eastern Wisconsin got a taste of Sandy. Wind advisories and large waves coming off Lake Michigan.

    Some parts of our coast in North Carolina got quite a bit, but I am in central part of the state so we just had very overcast skies and a little rain Monday. Today was cool.

    Things look pretty bad in New York City and New Jersey.

    I was on a peninsula for the Sandy tasting.

    Geez louise, it was a low end hurricane.
    My childhood revisited.
    A rotting city tree came down on phone and power lines next to the house.
    The phone pole snapped in half and took off a chunk of a maple tree that landed behind my van.
    No heat, power. phone.

    Family got pi**y so I left ASAP.
    Lots of driving through downed trees and lines yesterday eve.

    The more crowded the coastal areas become, the bigger the $$$ call on damages.

    You didn't need this, renee.

    Glad you escaped in one piece. Now all you have to do is look out for goblins and bats and what-not.

    Gosh Renee, was family so bad that you had to drive through that? Were you alone? Sometime when things happen I just want to be in my own home. Maybe that is how you felt. Don't know how far you had to go but I would not care to drive in it. You are a brave lady. But then we already knew that. Hope
    everything was alright at your house when you got there.

    No Scrabble, no marshmallows! I was a bit testy, too
    What a waste of a perfectly good outdoor/indoor experience.

    The drive should only take 3.5 hours but tuesday afternoon and eve it was more like
    6 with an hour to chill out at a rest stop.

    The cat was glad to have me... clean his litter box. Yechhhh.
    Nothing happened up here.
    I still feel like I am in lockdown.

    ALL THAT FIREWOOD down there.
    8>)
    Makes me crazy to think about it.

    Welcome to November, peeps.
