Yep, generator is all gased up and ready to go. Just had a momentary outage that came back up so I know we'll be out soon.

Is it as bad as they said it would be? Looks like NY is going to miss the brunt of it. The storm is moving towards Atlantic City pretty fast now and is losing its tropical characteristics according to NOAA. The cold front is absorbing it and tearing the convection apart. The good news, it won't get stronger. The bad news - it's getting bigger.

I'm 10 miles west of Erie Pa. I live 7 tenths of a mile from the lake shore. Thank God it's downhill. The power has gone off a couple times but it came right back on. Oops power just went off again for a few seconds. I better sign off. Stay safe everybody. Love Billie

By now I am sure everyone sees how bad this turned out to be, just crazy. fortunately it appears the death toll has not been as bad as it could have been.
I'm in Southwestern CT and fared pretty well. I have no power, but was prepared with backup generator so holding our own. My house held up well, had a tree fall and damage part of a new fence we just got put up, wasn't too bad and can certainly be repaired - ironically I haven't even given the contractor the final payment yet. So we'll have to do some negotiating when he comes back to do the finishing touches and work out a price to fix the section that got hit. Again, can't really complain much, but this has forced my hand to have two trees removed that loom over my house. they are my neigbors and they should cut them down but I don't think they have the money to do it. I don't really have the money to do it either but I discussed it with my wife as looking at it like an insurance policy - it is only a matter of time before one of those trees comes through our house and then the $500 - $1000 to have them taken down is going to seem pretty insignificant. Most properties by me held up well too except for one neighbors house who had roof partly ripped off from wind. The roof was old, everyone else's roof held up, the wind was bad but a good roof was able to hold up.
So all in all very grateful we made it without much trouble. Hopefully power will come back on soon. As for the people who got it much worse in NY and NJ, I just hope the best for them.

I'm in south central PA (a little east of Woof Woof if I remember correctly) and I faired really well. I did get a small amount of water in my basement but it wasn't bad at all. We had a few power flashes but the worst was in the middle of the night so we weren't really affected. My kids are happy because they had 2 days off school.

Hi Everyone: Was having trouble with my computer before Hurricane Sandy. Then nothing worked when the storm hit. I live not far from Atlantic City, and close to Long Beach Island. ITs a disaster area here, but we lost power on Monday night, and got it back on Wed. morning. We have never experienced anything like this before. We are not far from the Resort Town Seaside Heights, and there is damage to the bridge to get there. Structural damage to Long Beach Island Bridge also.
Boardwalks got washed right into the ocean. Food Stores have no food, but we are doing okay with what we have.
We were prepared with a cooler and lots of ice to preserve freezer food, and some refrigerator food. The rest got dumped. Not worth taking chance and getting sick. We still have so many areas with no power, and all you hear is the chain saws cutting down broken trees all over the place. So glad we live inland quite a distance from the water.
I hope everyone is safe, and functioning the best they can until things get back to normal.
We did a lot of praying before the storm got to N.J., and there was no damage to my home or vehicles. None of my trees came down.
God Bless Everyone
