Les LK emailed me this picture.
This is the post office in the middle of his town. His tax returns are in a flooded mailbox there. frown

How did you others do through the storm?

Tax day this year is the 17th, due to a holiday in the District of Columbia and the fact that April 15th fell on a Sunday...

Southern Maine got hammered yesterday. Central Maine Power has 121,000 customers(almost ice storm of 1998 like numbers)down at this point. Most along the coast where gusts of wind(some over hurricane force) battered the shoreline along with 3 to 6 inches of rain. Today my area is supposed to get 60mph gusts, 50 miles north of here is supposed to get 4 to 8 inches of snoweek The best part, I'm supposed to work outside today smile

I'm assuming that is in Jersey, what town?
We have a few rivers that spilled their banks up in North Jersey, but nothing that looks that bad.

Just finished my taxes. The IRS said Monday night that people in the Northeast have until April 19'th to get their returns in, if they were delayed by the April 16'th storm.

In my backyard about 200' away, is the Rahway River. The water from the river was about 10' away from the house yesterday afternoon because of flooding. No, I am not kidding. It was worse than when Hurricane Floyd came though eight years ago.

I am a volunteer firefighter in the town just south of New Brunswick, from 15:00 Sunday until about 17:00 on Monday we ran about 85 calls. Most were flooded basements, two car fires at 4:00 AM (Suspicious???) The worst one I saw was a homeowner who said as we were walking up "I don't think you can help me", opened his Bilco doors and water was coming out, he had about 7' of water in the basement. The other bad ones had about 3'. I liked the ones who were in a panic over an inch or two. As we were walking into houses we were asking people how many feet of water they had, anything under a foot, call a plumber in the morning, as we shut down the furnace and water heater.
