We made it!
According to the weather center, Sandy came overland at the southern tip of NJ, proceeded through central DE and on to Maryland’s Eastern Shore. We are far enough away from the Chesapeake Bay that we were safe other than trees and swollen streams.
After the storm passed, we had a break from the sheets of parallel rain and wind. Then around midnight the second part passed over. It was not as bad as the frontal storm. However, we did lose power about 2 am.
Amazingly, power returned at 9 am. Thankfully, in time for COFFEE!
It is unbelievable that the Internet is working today. I have to thank Verizon, a sore spot for most of us who are forced to use their service (it is the only one available out here), but it returned as the power came on.
I hope all the people who were/are in Sandy’s path does as well.
