We still have clouds coming through my area. There are some people here who were hoping for time off work and upset because we didn't get it. Then complain that we have no interesting weather here. How dumb can you be?
Right this way to my haunted space.

We got a total of 3.5 inches of rain and winds to 45 mph gusts. Then it switched to snow, and another 4 inches of that. Minor power drops here but no extended outages. The worst is going north now, winds and rain are slowing. It wasn't as bad as it could have been here, but areas not far from me are dealing with 10-12 inches of snow and stream flooding. The snow is actually a good thing. It locked up some of the precipitation and kept the rainfall totals down. This in turn minimized flooding on the rivers. As is, only some minor river flooding is expected Wednesday through Friday.

That's good, CaveRat!

Seriously! Though, Jo and I were glad we had Monday and Tuesday off, because we have a coworker off to take care of her grandson, and we're covering her area on top of ours. Let's just say... Superstorm Sandy kickstarted the winter aches and pains for me, and work just exasperated them even more.

This is the first time in almost 35 years of exsistence, all spent in Cleveland, OH, that we've been affected to such a degree by a hurricane/tropical storm. We lost power about 9:15 pm on Monday. It was restored sometime early Wednesday. We were able to spend the night at my brother's house, so my daughter had a nice warm bed on tuesday night. There are other suburbs closer to Lake Erie that still have no electricity. This is the third day that the kids in our little town (Brooklyn, OH) have no school. There are about six utility poles down on the main road nearby. Halloween has been moved to Sunday. The funny thing is that all my outdoor decorations survived! Trees and polls are falling everywhere, and my styrofoam graveyard is intact.

But with all this going on here, it could have been much worse. I'm thankful that we're all okay, and I'm praying for everyone on the coast who got hit much harder.

Finally, Thank you to the men and women at First Energy, and other power companies who are working around the clock to restore everybodies electricity. And a bigger thank you to all the police, fire fighters, and healthcare workers who are also working around the clock saving lives and keeping us safe.

Well, with that being said, here in the middle of southern Connecticut, we fared pretty well. Lots more wind than rain. I live far enough from the coast to not have to worry about storm surges and waves. There were people, less than 5 miles south of where I am who were flooded out of their neighborhoods, lost power and, in some cases, lost their roofs. But where I live, there were some branches on the ground, that's all. And we never lost power! :)

I do feel bad for the people living in New Jersey (well, I always feel bad for those guys because they live in New Jersey!) and NYC. The videos and photos of what happened to them is incredible. It just goes to show that Mother Nature is very powerful.

Since so much of my family and friends live in Connecticut I stayed up 'till 3am 2 nights in a row watching the national news reports on what was happening.
Yesterday one spot on the news a reporter was talking with a fireman in New Jersey. A house had just started burning. The power had just come on and of course everything was in water so.... They put the fire out and were talking about it when this firemen says...... "We feel for everybody here because we ARE everybody here." I had to write that down. Seemed like such a profound thing to say. Something to think about for sure.

I know! Mom was in shock at how bad it was, since she was born and lived there for a long while. It's still her home, more than here. Though, she did say she's darn glad she wasn't there during the storm/hell on earth.

I feel horrible just to mention this, but you all have probably already seen the national news today. They mentioned a new storm brewing in the same spot that Sandy originated. :(

Hope not. Geeeeze I should just leave the TV off on the evening. Now I have to worry all over again. :( OR.... I should read again your signature (is that what it's called?) LycanGhost about only living in today and choosing to be happy. I should read that more often.

Mhm, that's what it's called! Heck, I've got to keep rereading it myself just to try to stop stressing over my dad's idiotic behaviour. Mom said a few minutes ago about us being hit by a noreaster... Ugh!

Me too. I'm one of those "do as I say, not as I do" people. But really.... I've read your signature so often to remind myself that I'm the boss of myself, not other people's behavior. Most of the time it works. :)

There are a few times like this when I'm happy to be in Texas away from those noreasters. My old bones couldn't take that any more!
