    We made it through ok. Didn't lose power, just a few branches down.

    Hope everyone gets power back soon and the waters reside.

    Hubby should be able to come home after work tonight. He couldn't last night, due to bridge closures. On the bright side, he found a hotel to sleep in, and got to use the little Travel Tech I won in a PIF. He really likes it, BTW.

    Well that's better then lot of people out towards the East Coast. I glad it sounds like a lot of people here made it through okay, and I'm hoping its the same for those we haven't heard from yet.

    Sitting in a Red Robin in southern Maine as me and 33,000 of my friends still have no power.

    Working in tech support for a cable company, getting all the overtime I want. I'm amazed at how many people insist on talking to a person when the up front message tells them they are in an outage area. And no sir, just because you have a generator, that doesn't mean your cable phone and internet should be working.

    We had another power outage last night, for about 4 hours. But on the bright side, my husband finally got to come home!

    Lost power for 22 hours which isn't bad at all. Had a few trees come down. One crushed the fence, two big Cedars leaned over on the house. The crappy thing is that I can't do any clean up until the insurance adjuster shows up. No water in the basement.
