    I read online that 6.2 million people are without power.

    It's a staggering number - almost too hard to comprehend.

    Hope all forumites are safe and warm?

    I'm sure that Butterhead, being a NYC police officer is quite busy right now, so he may not be on too soon.

    Checking in - safe, sound and dry. We are currently the only people we know with power, including all of our close friends, our jobs and Jon's family. There is some damage to the house, we haven't fully assessed how much just yet, but I'd guess it to be minimal to moderate. The BEST news to report is that we did NOT take on any water. A huge relief after just replacing the flooring from the storms last year. The marsh rose all the way up the street, into the yard and right to our front porch before receding. The wind sounded like a freight train approaching.

    I'm glad you're ok Becca and there isn't any water damage I've heard people say that hurricane winds sound like a freight train before. I'd be really scared.

    It's good you've got power, I've been looking at the time waiting for a reasonable hour to text you to make sure you were all ok

    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    Glad you're safe Becca and still juiced up (take that however you'd like).

    Been there, done that with water coming up to the front door and then receding. Scary. Glad that it didn't come on in.
