I think ordering the evacuations and shut-downs was the smartest thing that Mayor Bloomberg did in this one; that storm could have been much worse, and I shudder to think what could have happened. I feel terrible for the folks up in Vermont, and over in the Catskills, some of those places are going to be cut off for weeks. We got very lucky where I live, lots of trees down and power cuts, but no loss of life, which is a blessing.

I don't want to get redundant, but yes, today is day three! Supposedly we are supposed to get power starting at 6pm tonight but our servers and everything won't be rebooted until tomorrow morning. Oy!

Almost nine days ....

Post by LGWalker » Tue September 6th, 2011, 9:37 pm

OK ... my power in CT was restored last night at 5:30 ... almost nine days after it was knocked out by a huge tree that kept us trapped on our lane for over two days. I just felt like I had to shout out there and say "HELLOOOO". It feels so good to be back in the world. Wasn't it Lady Jane Grey who was the Nine Days Queen? Sure seemed like a long time when you're in 21st century Connecticut without power.

Oy, so glad you finally have power back. Hope you had a generator or something!

So the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region is facing serious flooding issues yet again! My thoughts with everyone in the northeastern part of PA!

I had a longer commute home this evening because of this rain. WTOP reported a lot of flooded roadways especially in northern VA.
