Thinking of you all and still hoping that it will not be too bad. It is covered on TV quite a bit here so we are kept up to date.
Over 300,000 without power in CT now.
Watching on TV the AC boardwalk being washed out to sea. How terrible. We have some water in our lower level. DH we.nt outside and said a rain spout came apart and he thinks that's why the water came in. I sopped up the water in 2 rooms, laid down towels where the water is still coming in, and turned on a fan to help dry the area and the part of our carpet that is squishy. Hope that is the worst. We still have electricity but many in Atlantic County do not so I guess we are in for that too. Our tv is showing tremendous video and stills of the shore areas. I'm glued to the TV. It is Philly stations and they have correspondents in the shore areas. They have to keep moving to get into a safer area.
I hope the rest of you are safe and secure.
My block is closed due to a fallen tree and fallen wires. The guy just moved the car out of there just in time. The good thing is Power is still on. My son posted a picture of Hoboken on his facebook. One of Sintra drive and one of a tree which fell on a car.
Jackie and Suskey have both lost power.
Can not believe that Kay has not.
Wind has definitely died down from a crazy amount between 2 and 5 but I think it is picking up again.
Power out since 4:30ish.
Rain stopped and a big full moon is out.

Hey BIG 2 Exchange Companies "I'm keeping track of how many times you annoy me" ArtsieAng
Hope all our North East Members make it OK, will be thinking and praying for you all.
Internet ok? How is that possible? is it all underground?
praying & thinking of those affected!
standby generator worked great. power is back on now. we have power at work, so I'll be going in. hope everyone else fares well.
Sis in north Jersey lost power around 3:00 PM. Later a tree fell across her driveway bringing all her own power lines down, so she can't go anywhere. All of my family in NJ & PA are without power. Luckily my son in PA has a generator and a wood stove because it's cold up there. Don't know how the others are going to stay warm.
We lost power as I was outside smoking my cigar. I was seeing all the transformers blowing far away then saw a flash which was ours and that is when we lost power. We just got back on a half hour ago. My son is stuck in his blackend appartment. The Hudson is in front of his house and people rafting on his block.
My uncle had to be rescued in his house at 2 am from the slug of Howard Beach which was chest high.
