    We had a 30 second power outage, enough to reset all the clocks.

    A few downed trees.

    Neighbors across the street lost power. We were lucky. 1 million people without power in VA.

    oh ya, that sucks. I just went around and reset all of the clocks in house, soooo treacherous, especially the microwave, never could set a microwave clock properly. It currently reads 10:54 PM, it took so long to get it to the right time that I was hesitant to fuck around with the am/pm in case it went back to the feared blinking-12:00.

    Power's out here, running on battery backup. Might be on sporadically if the internet holds up. Not nearly as severe winds as I had anticipated so far. But lots of rain and flooding here, plus power outages. Not fun. Once things get back to normal here, will be back to business. Take care guys.

    Power has been out since 7:30 am here in New England/Boston area. Generator is running,have the basics. Branches down all over the place. Seems like the worst of the wind and rain is over. Be safe everyone!

    It's sunny and 85 here, now. I was lucky and didn't even lose power. The area was lucky and didn't get that much wind, but there was plenty of rain and a moderate amount of flooding. Good luck to those up north!

    We're out of power, along with over one hundred thousand others (I don't remember the estimate exactly), but it doesn't seem like there's any flooding, but plenty of leaves and branches are down, though only small branches were downed in my neighborhood.


    EDIT: Apparently large branches and trees were knocked over, and the metal piece holding electric wires to the pole down the street was ripped off the pole and broke into several pieces, though the fact that it broke into pieces has to be just from hitting the pavement at such a height.

    Power was restored before, and now it's down again. Not fun...

    Power is back, shut down the generator, got stung by a wasp on the inside of my arm. Wasp's get mad when you accidentally aim the exhaust at their hive in the old wood pile.
