East coasties - hope you're okay...

News looks pretty devastating this morning in Sandy's wake, I hope y'all are safe, and know we are here for you if we can help with anything in getting back up to speed.

Thanks Paul. It was a mixed bag depending on your location. I'm in the Albany Area which is at the juncture of the Mohawk and Hudson Rivers. Hudson is a tidal river with no locks between Albany and NYC. Locally, we got no more rain than any rainy day. It was not even a day's worth. Rained last night for a few hours. Wind was pretty mild. Had some gust after midnight, but nothing worse than what we get during the winter. We never even lost power

About a half hour south, in the Catskills, they got a lot more and stronger wind. Friends down there are having to clean up lots of fallen trees. The closer you go to NYC from there, the worse it gets. Newburgh, the home of the new Motorcycle Museum had flooding along the riverfront, but that's it.

Co-workers in New England have not reported any major issues yet.

Seems NYC, NJ and surround areas got pounded with surge close to 14 feet and winds over 100 mph.

regards,
Rob

We got about 9" of rain and 65-70 mph gusts in Southern Maryland. Just a few limbs down and alot of leafs. Coastal areas got flooding with the high tides but all in all we fared pretty well.

Here in Staten Island things are trashed. Boats on the streets, most people without electric. Material things can be replaced - glad we all escaped unscathed

We caught the edge of Sandy here in Rhode Island. Sakonnet River, though only three miles wide, was white-capped with rollers. Windows all held, some small amounts of water in the basement - we were very lucky. Scattered power outages but the home and the office are online and functioning now.

No major deal here in the Boston area that I'm aware. I did have to delay picking up a T140V head from the bike shop, though.

I can handle the no electric, no gas, etc. The worst part about being on the east coast is the fact that we'll soon have to put our bikes away for a few months. Hope all is well with our fellow east coasters. Hang in there.
