    Well, it's morning, and we're not underwater. Cat is no longer freaked out, daughter slept the whole night through (though in our bed) and is now demanding chocolate for having made it through a hurricane. It looks like we only lost power for a couple minutes last night. No major road closures in our city. So all in all, I think we got off pretty easy.

    Well, we over here in WV are fine...

    Hey, how's everyone doing? I'm okay, but my family back home has no power and they might not for a while--I haven't been able to call them yet this morning. I know they're mostly okay, though something smashed my dad's windshield and there was a downed power line down the block on fire and the basement's probably flooded again. But if that's all I have to worry about then we got off lucky.

    Wind has died down in PC. We haven't lost electricity thank goodness. A few trees are down in the culdesac. The rain is still coming, and the snowstorm from the west is supposed to come and blow the trees in opposite directions knocking even more over, so we're still supposed to stay inside all day.

    Wind seems to be picking up again, but I believe the worst is over. There are some power outages near my work, but my area and the area my family and girl friend live seem to be doing alright and still have power. Praying for the people in the south that are getting heaps of snow, and those without power or with damages. <3

    I heard from my partner's family in New Jersey, seems they were very lucky. No flooding and only "a light drizzle (...)" and some strong winds (Marlton, NJ). Thank heavens for that!

    Hope you are all okay. I hold all you playgrounders in the area in my thoughts!

    Had 2 or 3 flickers on the power, but otherwise came through without a problem. I was mildly surprised, because our power grid crashes horribly if there's even the tiniest gust of wind, but my power stayed on all night. 100,000 people were out of power in Virginia overnight. IIRC, that's less than the peak of the big summer storm we had.

    If only the hot tub were ambulatory. I would have invited it inside.
    Or at least had fun watching it run around the yard, sloshing, and dodging the falling branches.
    I could have sworn I saw that in A Nightmare Before Christmas -- or at least the Kingdom Hearts world based on it (Halloween town) .

    How about this rumor? I heard the ny stock exchange was under 3 feet of water last night. No confirmation on if it was more than rumor though.

    You know, "Busted Hot Tub Blues" would be an awesome song.

    Tis good to hear everyone's okay so far. Although that business with the car was a little freaky.

    So we've moved on from haikus to "Unlikely New York Rumors"? Hmmm, I'm not a Troglander but I'll take a shot:

    I heard that New York has been partially evacuated and now armed schools of dolphins are looting and pillaging the waterfront.

    I've heard that a tentacled monstrosity has surfaced in new york harbor and no weapons are having any effect on it. Perhaps they'll get an ocean liner to try to ram it. That worked in "The Mountains of Madness" , after all.

    Rumor Haiku:

    Seriously, now:
    It's true. Lower Manhattan
    Is staying with you.



    No seasonal word, but it will have to do.
    My tendency when faced with stupid rumors is to pretend they are true and take 'em to the next level. As in:

    IT Guy: Did you hear? They've evacuated NYC! All of it!
    Me: I know! Crazy, right? How many are coming to stay with you?
    IT Guy: Uh ... what?
    Me: didn't you hear the update? Everyone on the east coast is getting at least one refugee from NY or NJ. We all have to do our part. I got five arriving this afternoon. How many you got?


    Monkey has little patience for rumors.

    Well, we got a good bit of rain, although I don't remember any wind (granted, I had my speakers up pretty loud almost all day yesterday, and didn't really look outside much). The rain's actually stopped, although looking at the map, I think I'm going to get some more later today (unless the storm disintegrates or something).
