Hi all,
After cleaning up from the hurricane we had last night, all is well. Some
of my neighbors were not so lucky. I had one maple tree land on my house,
but cause no damage, and a pine tree went in the large pond, but it too was
taken care of with minimal distubance to the pond. The power just came on
three hours ago, and was without for 24. It appears all is well. From 10
last night until dark today you could here hundreds of chainsaws running
clearing debri. It was an awesome storm, not really a hurricane, but winds
were sustained in the 70 mile per hour range for over an hour, and the rain
was coming down in such volume you could not make out street lights across
the street during all this. Then all the power in the area was out. I am
sure gusts were higher, I was at work when all this happened, and could do
nothing but stay in the building once the power went out. It was designed as
a bomb shelter in the 60's , so is pretty sturdy. I seen a car going through
a foot of water ( the street) get pushed up on the sidewalk by a gust of
wind. All I could think was wow, what power.
