While we think of our family and friends during this storm, lets not forget our fellow sparktarians and their families on the east coast too. It appears that New Jersey is getting the blunt of it however this super storm as they been calling it is churning up Lake Michigan which is hundreds of miles away.

Once the storm passes, there's the clean up and the rebuild which is also dangerous. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers. If you here from any of them, sound off

From the Jersey Shore area:
My wife and i had to evacuate before the storm,living on the mainland side of Barnegat bay & on a lagoon.

We are staying with friends 'inland' in Toms River & are safe.

As to our home, I may be able to get back Wed IF the road is passable. We had reported house fires, numerous homes floating off of foundations,trees,power lines, etc down. Transformers exploding, substations under water & who knows what.

Thanks to all for the concerns hope all others are OK. I'll be back astime permits.

Central Long Island here...

Power, yes, Telephone, Cable & Internet, no....

Long lines outside 7-11s to get a Cup of coffee here... many in the area have no power. Many trees down on powerlines, houses and blocking neighborhood roads.

No complaints from me, it could be much worse.

General situation is extensive damage and floodwaters are still preventing access. As far as Iknow, my home is still standing. but may be flooded. Good thing is my wife, family & I are safe, as are most of my friends.

No complaints from me. Be back as time allows.

Update: 3'+ thru garage/laundry; crawl space full; probably 1/2"in living areas. Hopefully the HW floors survive?

I'm a very thankful soul, after a quick tour of my neighborhood. The damages and outright destruction is not east to describe, and the TV or pics don't show it all!

Thank you to all, I'm a lucky one! Should have electric back by Nov.6 or sooner per First Energy

Looks pretty gnarly. It took 3 feet of water or more to carry that boat across the road. That was on the mainland side? These hurricanes are pretty nasty business. I am glad you seemed to make out fairly well. I hope you can save that floor.
