    Thank you for thinking about us. We have quite a bit of flooding on the property, but, Thank God, none in the house, kennel or barn! Some big trees down along the property line and limbs off of the tree in front of the house, but no damage other than to the trees.

    My pond which was the lowest I had ever seen it is now overflowing its banks. Saw some interesting marks/blinds that I can do with the dogs Not sure how long it will take for it to get back inside its banks, but will have some fun for a couple of days

    We've been busy today cleaning up. Winds here were reported sustained between 70-80 miles an hour last night. We kept electric until this afternoon but now running on a generator. We were able to go to the store a little while ago and was amazed at the amount of flooding in the area.





    The trees you see are along the bank of the pond.

    Glad everyone is ok! I just don't understand if you are told to evacuate why you stay. That is how people die.

    After seeing all the devastation in other areas, we count ourselves extremely lucky.

    I am thankful that my family and friends (including those on RTF) are safe and weathered the storm well. I much prefer "clean up" to seeing someone in the hospital or attending a funeral. Unfortunately, others on the east coast don't have that option.

    The devastation in NJ & NY just tears at my heart. I can't imagine losing everything we own and seeing my whole neighborhood wiped out by flooding or fire.

    Has anyone heard from gdgnyc? No one seems able to get in touch with him, and the fires are a bit of a concern. Hopefully it's just a power outage keeping him from responding.

    I feel the same Vicky. Feel somewhat guilty when I think about how lucky we were, when Sooo many weren't.
