Less than a block from me. For an hour or so, it was partially blocking the only road to/from the apartment complex. This is after a day or so of clean-up.

This is not what the NE needs next week, a big snow storm:

The good news there is that the areas getting the most snow were not hit particularly hard by Sandy. Areas that had less foliage had less tree damage, and winds were highest coming off of the water.

Still no power. Half staff in the office today.

Still can't believe how many trees and telephone poles are snapped in half and uprooted. I am glad we had no rain in our neck of the woods. As it would have been alot worse. Just can't believe how bad the shore towns got it

So we get to stress over a potential nor'easter next week while everyone is still in recovery mode. Mother Nature is a BIOTCH!

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/11/...looms?lite

Our area of the Poconos (roughly 100 miles inland from NYC, NJ shore points & Philadelphia) had 6 hours of howling winds after Sandy came ashore; 30-45 mph sustained with 65 mph gusts. She was not a major rainmaker for us like Irene was, but the winds dealt their damage everywhere.

Fortunate are we having a generator that provided all the basic comforts we needed. Thankfully our power was just restored yesterday. Being a rural area, we are very fortunate, but luckily we live adjacent to a community development. So we benefited from the numbers game. Then again 20 homes within a mile from us are still without power and will likely be that way until the more heavily impacted areas in our county are restored. They are estimating Sunday night at earliest.

Of course our problems are NOTHING compared to NJ & NY !!! Understandable that they drive a good distance in search of gas, but now we're being impacted by it. Even our hotels and motels are booked solid.

Quote:On Friday morning, the backlash grew, as the New York Post reported that generators, which in theory could be used to power darkened homes on Staten Island, have been set up in Central Park to power a media tent for the marathon. “They should make all of these runners bring food and water to people’s houses who need it,” Yelena Gomelsky, a Coney Island resident, told the Post. “They should bring all of these generators to buildings where old people live and give them power.”

After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true.

Adding fuel to the fire, some hotels have booted out locals to honor reservations for incoming marathon guests!

Sounds like they've canceled it.
