It looks like the worst of Sandy, aka the Frankenstorm, has passed our area. Here in Worcester we had heavy rains and high winds, but we never lost power (at least in my area). My backyard neighbor had about half of their fence between our yards blow down - but the thing has been on its last legs for a while, the posts were rotten. And I think the neighbor to the side lost a piece of siding.

There doesn't seem to be much in the way of downed trees - but then they cut most of the trees down within the past few years due to that damn Asian Longhorned Beetle. I suppose that's a benefit - there weren't any trees to blow down.

I see that people along the coast got it a lot worse than we did inland. I hope everyone here managed to weather the storm without too much trouble.

We lost cable -- which means no tv, phone, or internet -- for about 20 hours. We almost finished our Bernheim L&K bottling in a head to head with the Washington Wheat I purchased the other day.

Frankenstorm, it's why all the rum is gone! Very Happy

Out west, we brave the heat. Last weekend we were in the 90s.

i just got power back... so no power Mon Tues Wed and Thurs. The local damage was the worst I've seen here in the last 30 years. We're accustomed to pines toppling over and the Domino effect of losing several in a row.

The most amazing part was the live trees snapped off 10 ft off the ground with the top part of the tree also snapped into 2 pieces and dropped to the ground. It was as if 18" to 30" diameter trees were match sticks to be snapped into 3 pieces.

Yesterday, we still had 50% of the town without power and many major roads with blockages.

I had plenty of Wolfard lamps and liquid paraffin so I did not need to resort to alcohol lamps (just kidding).

Newton got off easy. The lights flickered once at my house. Some small branches down. Didn't even run out of any alcohol.
