    thanks, the wind and rain has been pounding my place since last night, also lost power during the night, guess the eye is over me now, it's slowed down, saw shingles all over the yard and trees down everywhere.
    we don't realize how much we use electric til it's lost, got my generator hooked up and running, just waiting for the second wave now

    Glad to hear you're alright, Bruce. Still waiting here on Long Island - lots of rain but not much wind yet. The overnight hours may be interesting....

    yeah i was waken about 2am this morning with the sounds of my house being beaten to crap with rain and wind and kept up all day, still a high wind now and then, but mostly calmed down some.
    i just out and fueled up my generator for the night

    i lived thru tornadoes in iowa growing up, a volcano in seattle, over 6.2 earthquakes in CA (or whatever the whittier quake was in the 90's, waa 6. something and i was at epicenter. my home was a mess). i'm glad to be back in seattle area, where things pretty calm. take care, bruce. i can't deal w/those kind of storms now i'm in chair. was bad enough before. actually, was in chr in bad whittier quake. my son in crib near me, all i could do was listen to everything in house crashing. tg it was early enough in a.m. i wasn't at work, as large ceiling monitor crashed on my desk.

    we finally have the power back on here. I'm hearing there's been a few casualties from the storm. But the worst is over now in NC. The clean up an recovery starts in the morning.
