Thankfully temps are above normal so no bitter cold to go with the wind. We will be getting off easy compared to those farther south.

    Prayers for all.
    In Watford, Ontario by Sarnia where I am, winds have picked up significantly this afternoon. Calling for 45mph to 60mph especially tonight. I am waiting for the rain. Too much means flooding in the basement! They have stopped the ships from entering Lake Huron. 6 ships in the St. Clair R. and 12 on Lake Superior waiting her out. Expecting 18 foot waves! Also Blue Water Bridge between US and Can. may shut to trucks. We are in her path? Nothing like you folks are experiencing though. Stay safe!!!!

    Well we lost the power early this morning? The wind is still battering us anywhere from 45 to 60 mph a north wind coming from Lake Huron tip. And the RAIN! Hydro crews unable to come out with such dangerous winds. Looks like a long outage?
    Hope you all in Sandy's path have faired okay. I at least have my computer to read RTF! Take care.

    Inland here over by PA it wasn't so terrible. Windy, rain a couple of inches. We (my family) seems to have made it through OK.

    In Southern Ontario (again inland), we got big winds and rain. Mostly downed trees here and there and some power outages. We've had 3 straight days of rain ahead of Sandy so everyone was worried about flooding but we're all good here. Nothing like what NY/NJ got. Some very powerful pictures. Let's hope everyone stays safe.

    Prayers out to all those who have been affected by this powerful storm!

    Many in our flight at the Master National were keeping close tabs on it's projected path. Worrying about the families, homes, and animals they left behind to attend the event. I hope all are safe and damage is minimal!
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    Yup! Got pretty bad here but, we dodged a bullet. Never lost power. No real damage. Couple leaks was all. When it blows that hard for that long, bound to find a seam somewhere. Looks like being 60 miles inland helped alot.

    Stay safe, moscowitz. This does look like a bad one. I saw water over the beach and onto the streets on the Rockaway Peninsula. Could happen by you.
    I see LI got hit hard. How you doin? My sister lives over by Sandy Hook, at the top of a 28 foot cliff. Says it (the ocean) was lapping at the edge of her cliff for hours, but ok now.
