Stephen, :smch

We are sitting here in California and thinking of you all in the Hurricane's path. Feeling rather helpless, but trying to stay informed by watching The Weather Chanel most of this day. :dk There are so many forum members, family members and friends that we are thinking of, and sending our prayers for, as we watch Irene travel North. :roll

STAY SAFE EVERYONE. :hp I sure hope that you all have prepared as best as you could....:luv

Dawn & Kevin

Here in Charleston SC we didn't even get the rain from it, only a bit of a breeze. However, my sister in law is in NY (hubby is overseas) and I am praying she is safe as I cannot get ahold of her.

Be safe everyone and please let us know if we can do anything to assist you.

Yes, pray for all those in Irene's way. Lots of rain in an already saturated ground - going up western Ma/CT and into VT. Block Island buoy half hour ago was at 24 ft - flood gates to Providence have been closed. We are dealing with hard wind here in Charlestown. Daughter has had 3 trees come down already. Going to be a long day.

It is beginning to feel like a hurricane. Star and I went for what could be our only quick walk today and tree branches had already fallen, it is very windy and a light rain. :OMY

It was practically a non-event here in Maryland, about 20 miles north of DC. We had a power surge overnight but that was it. My friends in Long Beach, NY had to evacuate and will assess their damage later today, but the reports on TV show extensive flooding there. Continued good wishes for those still in Irene's path.

Basement filling (and flowing), trees down (and being sliced and diced by hubby and the neighborhood crew).

We still have power.

Dogs ticked that their yard is messed up with leaves and the tree branches that are down are being cleaned up before they can pee on all of them.

Dodged that bullet....

My cousins house is completely flooded. :bang ugh say a prayer for them as the prepare to replace EVERYTHING and ANYTHING. They canoed (including taking Diesel!) to another house to stay where it was much more dry. :paw They have NO power and won't till the 4th. Water is expected to stay in the house till the 7th.

That includes ripping up their hard wood floors, and getting new ones....along with new walls as they will need replaced...new furnitiure...their basement has about 9 feet of water, and they have a couple feet in their 1st floor. The only dry spots are on their 2nd Floor, some of their 1st, and sitting on rooftop.

URGH!

Wow, what a mess! I hope the insurance company does not give them a hard time so that they may replace everything promptly.

Prayers for your cousin, Em. Flood water is nasty. They have lots of work ahead. I hope their insurance provides coverage. Still there are so many personal items that can't really be replaced. It's a sad thing. It's good to hear that they were able to get someplace safe and dry to stay, though.

We are OK in Milton, no power, but we have a generator so not too bad. I got coffee and internet this am! However we had this big huge pine tree land on the roof of Mike's shop. When the door is closed it is usually pitch black inside(no windows), not good when the door is closed and you see daylight above! Haven't been inside yet, hope none of gas pumps are damaged.

Hopefully you'll have power again soon, Sandy. It seems as if most of the people I know in New Hampshire are without power.

I just came back from cleaning the mess at the store. Lots of broken branches, leaves all over but no damage beyond a detached sign. No flooding so I'm hugely relieved and thankful.

Just wanted to say that we're thinking of you all over here in England.

Stay safe everyone! Will be sending all the positive thoughts in the world that Hurricane Irene moves out to sea and starts to diminish very soon! x

I am sure they feel displaced but thank goodness for insurance that will pay for their stay. It is just an ugly inconvenience. Lucky you were so inland.
