Hurricane Sandy
#81
It hasn't gotten too bad in Northern Virginia yet (just outside DC), just a lot of rain and fairly high winds... they have it way worse up north from what I hear. Prayers going out to everyone up there and around here.

I just got a return text from Skipper. His house has some serious damage and his boat is "on the brink". Everyone keep him in your thoughts.

Where I am, the wind has been insane. The rain is virtually non-existent. But the wind is very dangerous with all the trees involved.

I prepared this time. I have the generator on stand by. I had electricians here this morning for a few hours setting up a transfer kit for my breakers and such so I can power items directly from my panel. I bought a new pump as well for the driveway drain. At least 20+ gallons of gas too. This damn storm cost me about a grand for sure so far, but it's better to be safe and now I set for the future. Fortunately, I still have my power.

Now concerning Skip, I've been in contact with him all night. He said he lost his first floor!! Extreme water damage. He lost his aristocrats too since then couldn't be saved. He said his car is under water too. His neighbors boat already floated away and he's afraid his is next since its barely hanging on. The dock I believe is gone too. He needs help and I wish there is something we can do.
