Here in Albany , we were extremely fortunate...MAYBE .2" rain and gusts not exceeding 45mph.
Predictably, folks are on radio and social media slamming the local Mets for "overhype"
They were probably the same ones who criticized them for undercasting Irene last year.

Here in eastern WV lost power from 8 last night until 8 this morning- not as bad as it felt it would be considering the winds were downright scary at times. Lots of local flooding, trees down and still many others without power. As said - nothing along the folks who were on the front lines of this storm.

Fortunately I got off easy. Received about 6" of rain. Winds were really roaring last night. Gusting to easily 50 MPH or a little more. Lights were flickering quite a bit and power went off about 4 times but came back on immediately. My sump pump was constantly running and I was worried about a power outage because the pump would no longer work. Fortunatley that never happened.

Sorry I posted in the other thread. I will just repeat it here....my power came back on at 3, but still people around me without power, landlines or cable, many trees down, wires down, trees in some homes, on cars...still mildly occasional gusty winds.....I am in shock over what happened in N.Y.!! And still praying for those in A.C.

Only 1 small tree down at my parents house right outside of DC and their power never went off.

I live in Richmond Hill, Queens.. (NY). We didn't lose power, although there was a transformer sparking late last night.

I rode out the storm the whole time outside... saw many trees just crack in half, neighbor next door lost part of her roof.. and people across the street shingles flew off.

Take note I live on a dead end street so the wind wasn't as bad.

I did take a quick drive (against better judgement) to Crossbay all I can say is .. god bless them they will need it.

I hope we can maybe hear from people in the rockaways queens... I know many houses were on fire.. I hope we can get updates from there.

God bless,
Rich

We lost electric yesterday at 6:30 pm (Biglerville pa-10 min from the heart of Gettysburg pa). As of a half hr ago my boyfriend still had no electric back. I came to my brothers so Adam could try to get some sleep before work this evening. I didnt look up how much rain we got so far but it's a horrible feeling hearing cracking and snapping in pitch darkness last night then seeing the street filled with red flashing lights 2 neighbors up. They lost 2 big trees. If I never have to deal with Sandy again or a storm like her, im perfectly fine with that! I hope everyone stayed safe! Being without electric I dont know how Ny and Atlantic City are doing, but I pray they are all safe. I tried to upload a pic of the trees but it didnt upload. ill retry it.

We lucked out here in Frederick, MD. We didn't have any interruption in our power (which is indeed quite lucky as 1/3 of Frederick County, MD is without power at this time).

My wife and I live in a 1 story 1BR apartment. Out front there are roof shingles scattered around the apartments, along with an immense amount of brown pine needles that were blown off of the large pine trees in front of our place (thankfully the trees directly in front of our apartment held steady).

It was definitely a night full of loud wind & banging of a smaller tree against the side of our apartment building. We are quite relieved that we were not forced to use our back-up supplies we purchased this past weekend.

Many thanks to all of the immensely knowledgeable forum members who did an amazing job of keeping my wife and I (and subsequently the many family members & friends who I kept up to date) fully informed throughout this historic weather event.

My hat goes off to all of you.

6-7" of snow at our house when I left this morning and it was an adventure trying to get to work. Many trees on the road or hanging down from the weight of the snow. Very little wind, so that saved us major damage. The trees were coming down without any wind just from the weight of the snow. There is a large tree hanging on the lines though so we may lose power later? There was a state plow on our little road coming up the mountain that slid off into the ditch. I68 was closed from Cheat Lake, WV to the MD border. Not sure if they opened it back up or not. Down in the lower elevations of Morgantown looks like 2-4" of snow. The higher elevations likely have been crushed with 2'+

Its turning to sleet/rain in Morgantown, but still snowing at my house and for sure snowing higher up

I thought there would be more wind, but didn't think we would see all this snow as of yesterday. The local NWS really messed up on that front.

Wow, is that a car? Nice to see snow but wish it was under different conditions.

Devastating, but yet amazing storm. IMBY just some branches, ton of leaves, but thankfully nothing more. Going to walk around later to see the damage up here in Harlem. This surpasses any Big daddy storm, should be called Big Mama.


Stay safe everyone.
