By the time it hit us it really wasn’t all that bad.  Bad winter storm bad, but not storm of the year bad.  We didn’t loose power, though some of the surrounding areas have, mostly due to falling trees and branches.  The extent of our damage so far: having to go out and re-tarp the firewood as all but one tarp was half loose and fluttering away in the gusting wind.  At least none of them blew away….

The pictures coming from the coast are more than a little scary, and I was, again, impressed by the stupidity of human kind (what parent allows teenage girls to wander flooded dark streets at 11pm??), and thats without including the guy who went swimming at 10pm in the floodwaters, I never did hear if they found his body or not.
