My relatives in northern NJ got power back 2 days ago. They were equipped with a generator and so were able to cook & keep food etc. Still they are VERY glad to be done with the frequent drives toward PA each day to get fuel for it.

My mother in Hackettstown, NJ (northwest NJ) was without power in her apartment in a multilevel retirement community for a couple of days. They had a generator for the main building where the more intensive healthcare facilities are, as well as the dining room. They served free meals for the two days, and folks kind of had a good time gathering to play cards, music, etc.

Since they got their power back, lots of friends and relatives have been coming from harder hit areas to do laundry and take showers.

My brother is in a group home 20 minutes from her, and they were without power for over a week. After 4 days, they moved to the head counselor's house until the power was back.

My Dad cleverly passed away on the Sunday night before the storm really hit, and the mortuary service was able to pick up his body that night before the power went out!

I know there are some 'Catters who would be interested in this article in the NY Times today: [South Street] Seaport Museum Works to Dry Out. Some key passages:
Last January the museum reopened after being closed for almost a year for the expansion and updating of its galleries. The number of visitors has reached 100,000 since January.

But the clock is running. A $2 million grant from the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation gave City Museum up to 18 months to see if it could make a go of the seaport museum. Counting a six-month extension, that interim period expires in April.

The storm would seem like a good excuse as any for the City Museum to wash its hands of the project, whose financial challenges include a decade of back rent and utilities payments owed to the city's Economic Development Corporation and the cost of maintaining a fleet of 11 antique vessels.

The ships, it turned out, did surprisingly well in the storm, officials said, as the museum prepared by lengthening mooring lines so that the vessels could rise and fall with the surge.

Still, the damage elsewhere is substantial. Ms. Jones said she couldn't yet estimate the total cost, except to say that replacing the electrical system will run in the millions of dollars. The system, which includes the museum's escalator, elevators, heating and air conditioning, must not only be replaced but also be relocated to a higher floor to avoid damage in another flood.

Just reviewed the pics of Seaside Heights, NJ... Sickening... Seaside Heights had one of the greatest amusement parks on the east coast... The roller coaster was amazing... It went out over the ocean and you'd feel like you were about to by catapulted a mile out into the Atlantic and then in split second it would snatch you back with a violently hard right turn pulling down some serious G's... I mean, I've never ridden anything like it... It's now just twisted scrap metal... So very sad...

I've been looking for information regarding those within the storm's path who are dealing with snow as well as cold and power outages. Here's one report excerpt:

"ELKINS, W.Va. (AP) — Wet snow and high winds spinning off the edge of superstorm Sandy spread blizzard conditions over parts of West Virginia and neighboring Appalachian states Tuesday, shutting one interstate as trucks and cars bogged down and knocking out power to many.

The National Weather Service said a foot and more of snow was reported in lower elevations of West Virginia, where most towns and roads are. High elevations in the mountains were getting more than two feet and a blizzard warning for more than a dozen counties was in effect until Wednesday afternoon.

At least 236,000 customers were without power in West Virginia early Tuesday. " http://hosted2.ap.org/OREUG/topstories/Article_2012-10-30-Superstorm-Snow/id-ed09e7011cd04bdcb1f73cceb56dd191

Power restored about 4:20 PM (Wed), here -- we were without power for two days and 20 minutes.

Other than the annoyance of being without electricity, we got off fairly lightly with the storm. Mostly small branches in the driveway, though one pretty good sized one in the turnaround -- but I was still able to drag it out of the way. The OTHER annoyance is the almost dead branch of the oak that overhangs the driveway up by the road (where we park the car during a snowstorm) is still there. I keep hoping it will come down sometime when the car ISN'T parked in the general vicinity. It may be at the head of the driveway, but it's actually on our down-the-hill neighbors' land.

Yesterday alternated between rain and sun. Last night we had a thunderstorm, though, and from the news this morning, New Hampshire had some microbursts during that storm, but WEVO didn't say where.

Saw Jeri at McDonald's this morning when I was picking up coffee and breakfast for Tom and me. Cancelled our "avoid the trick or treaters" dinner tonight since we didn't know how long the power would be out so we'd have to go out for pizza or something. I was definitely getting cranky this morning even though I should be used to losing power for extended periods by now.

Well here at work in North Jersey I have power and heat and we are open as an electronics charging, wi-fi accessible free hot coffee and HEAT location.

Essex county was hit pretty hard and 80 of my town was out and is very slowly coming back on line.   Luckily several business districts were spared so there are places for people to go. We are estimated to get back electric November 5th. School has been closed for the rest of the week because tree clean up is so severe. I will get some photos tomorrow, but tonight we are offering a story teller, crafts, candy and heat in lue of the postponed Trick or Treating.

My house did fine, but the garage got kissed by a big ol tree from the neighbors yard.

Thanks for the link to the photos, John.

My husband works with engineers, and we often joke about them - their ordinariness, their dull conversation, their lack of imagination. Yet my husband also pointed out that in 85 mph winds, no skyscrapers collapsed, and except for the crane at 57th street, none of the many towers, tanks and other structures atop tall buildings endangered anyone. No bridges came down, either. You've got to give the engineers and contractors credit for doing things right.

Two other thoughts - it many not be as romantic, but build your house on high ground, not on the shore.

And trees may be beautiful, but they have to be watched. Let them get big, old and weak, and they can kill you.

The two strongest trees are the oak and the crabapple.

Despite dire predictions, mostly what we had here in Pittsburgh was a lot of rain. The Loyalhanna and the Youghiogheny both flooded, but the big rivers behaved themselves.

We were warned of 60mph winds today, Tuesday. All we got was rain. My Tuesday lady's husband (I clean houses)was on his way to work. He'd been told not to come in. Then he was told to come in. I expect he was relieved. His wife likes to talk, and talk and talk and talk. Well, you get the idea. Now I'm wondering what I can do for people who weren't as lucky as we were here in western PA.

Tinker's daughter has posted at the thread above the line that Tinker and family are OK, but without power.

I wonder if it might be appropriate to combine the two threads - maybe a title change that reflects it is both about the storm and folks checking in? I don't mind checking both threads to keep an "eye" out for how our friends and their families have and are faring, it just makes life a little more simple to keep track of one thread instead of two.

Sniff...

Long Beach Island was my summer stomping grounds as a teenager... And even younger... Though I only spent two entire summers there we were there every summer for ever...

Back then it was undeveloped between Surf City to Barngat lighthouse... Not much up there on the north part of the island... A marina and a lighthouse and 15 miles of nuthingness...

South of Surf City was different... Ship Bottom was hot... Beach Haven was hot... Everything in between was somewhat developed...

Long Beach Island is a national treasure and I hope that the Army Corps of Engineers can figure out how to save it...

Rap, we carry an inverter in each car. We don't even charge our phones directly off the lighter outlet. Ruins the batteries.

All is well here. The storm came through and power failed about 9:30 last night during a hot game of Mah Jong. The whole neighborhood got very quiet. Somehow, when we looked outside, it was still light out. Finally we realized that the moon was diffusing light through the crowds and giving us significant light.
