The Aftermath

So, Sandy dropped by last night. We had a few drinks, talked shit about those other, lamer weather systems (you know, like tropical depressions and the Gulf Stream), then we got tired and headed to the basement to sleep. See, Sandy's got a bit of a temper and frankly we were worried she'd take out her anger on all the trees that surround our house. It was a rough night mostly because I'm old. I'm not in college anymore. I can't drink, crap out on the floor and expect to wake up the next morning without some really serious back and shoulder pain. When we woke up, I couldn't move and Sandy had hightailed it out of here.

Our power is on, trees intact and the most damage we can see at this early hour is the loss of some shingles from someone else's roof. All-in-all, not bad.

Glad you guys survived just fine!

Glad to hear you made it through Sandy with no damage. My brother in NH had three 40-foot pine trees uprooted in his yard. Luckily none of them landed on any houses.

So glad you all survived with minimal damage done. :)

It rained a lot here in Baltimore, and it was windy, but it would take a lot more than that for me to go sleep in the basement. That's where my 16yo dog sometimes pees, so that would also have been where the neighbors find our bodies in a week.

Glad to hear you all survived the night - I think you had it a little rougher weather-wise than I did in interior Connecticut.
Power stayed on and minor branches lost. Only sad casualty was a 90 year old lilac tree.
Our shoreline was is and will be the biggest casualty as they assess damage.

Glad you are all OK. We just got hit with lots of wind and some rain here in western PA. Praying for all those hit much harder.
