Here in Michigan, we are still under the circulation from Sandy. The Low is now centered near Toronto, slowly moving
North-east into Quebec and eventually off into the north Atlantic.

Right now we still have northerly winds and bands of rain/snow. The winds have died down considerably, and the snow
is melting on contact with the ground, all snow from yesterday has melted.

Amazingly, I only lost power for a few seconds in spite of the strong winds over the last few days..
There have been a lot of homes without power in SE Michigan, DTE is slowly getting power restored.

The airlines have logistical nightmare to work through to get planes and flight crews into position to reassemble
the flight schedules, Most airlines pulled their planes out of east coast cities and moved them inland.
I don't think regular schedules will be operating until next Monday for most airlines. .

I have friends stuck in NYC, near JFK, with no power, heat and unsafe water and limited food.. not much fun.

We are still without power but hope is always with us. I am very proud of my little town and its town workers. They have worked very hard to get roads reopened and cleared so power restoration can take place. I had an appointment which took me to a neighboring town this morning, that town is not hit nearly as hard as we are and I was amazed to see their town workers just hanging out by a downed tree. I guess they are fixin to git to it but for now this job might take 4 guys and 2 trucks all day to complete. That town is financially strapped and yet I seldom see their workers doing much more then burning gas!! My hat is off to Norfolk's workers and volunteers!!!

Good to hear someone has something to show for their tax dollars ... unlike nearly every city & town in MA ... :roll:

Our town is pretty good, although the damn taxes go up like clockwork every year .... and also like clockwork some *censored* tries to ram through a proposition 2.5 override .... but that's more MA fault than our town. :mad:

No power here either. My elderly neighbor said they told her it'll be on today ... or Friday. :roll: :lol: Fine with me. I've found ways to save $$ on fuel so I'm good here. Not just surviving ... but THRIVING. :D

How do you save money on fuel or shall we call it liquid gold. Still just under $4.00 a gallon here. I can go about 10 hours on my generators 5 gallon tank but that is still a $20.00 bill every fill up!!

My son is in NYC lower Manhatten 17 floors up, no elevator, no power, no water, no sewer, no garbage removal and four month old twins. His car is under water and no cell reception either. I want him out but I have no idea how to get to him. They all seem to think power is coming back on tomorrow as it always has in the past......... not this time. :roll:

Now the trains are down and every luny is trying to get onto the roads and out of town, no traffic lights. Soon the guns come out. Of course the homeless and generally useless will get first priority.

My three main concerns in life now are - in increasing worry.

I have sustained damage from Sandy in many areas

I may die from Bubonic plague one day

I'm starting to think like Fred.

I have a 28' Bayliner in good shape. Just winterized and engine pickled to boot. I could go and park by the Water Club restaurant by 34th St walk over and get him and float him out. I wonder how Hells Gate is these days with the Hudson still draining?

Geez this is terrifying. No, not the boat trip.

Do you need to run it constantly? We had 16 gallons of fuel in the generator and gas cans. All the vehicles were full of fule too and I have a siphon pump. If it was really bad I had intentions of firing it up every few hours just enough to keep the fridge/freezer cold, keep some heat in the house and get water. I'm on a well pump.
