She's a trooper, but at the moment not very happy.

Other than trees being down all well here in northeastern Queens. Amazing how a few miles makes a big difference. Flew in to Jfk yesterday afternoon and the view from the air of the south shore was sobering. Boats strewn about everywhere like bathtub toys. I escaped with the minor inconvenience of having to wait for a flight home and no more. I was "stuck" in California riding Highway 1 and tasting fine wines. If there was ever a way to beat a storm this would have to be one of the the all time greatest.

My job site came away unscathed as well. I've worked on/in much of the infrastructure of NYC (including all the tunnels and many subway stations/tunnels and pumping facilities) and I can tell you the task of pumping out the water and restarting the mechanical systems is going to be a monumental undertaking. The piers have been inspected by the CG and have started receiving gasoline deliveries as of about 6 hours ago, on a high priority basis. Hopefully some normalcy will return by Monday.

Come on by and you can inspect the damage here too, but you have to bring beer, because I am embarasssed to say my kegerator is empty, then again it may not work since it did take on water. I did unplug it before we lost downstaris so I am hoping that helped

I'll put a care package together for you. Stouts & IPAs for the adults, and maybe some light lagers for the little ones

I'm working Saturday or Sunday. I'll call to let you know when "help" is on the way.

I'm a few blocks from the beach in Milford, CT. Just heavy winds at the house, very little rain. We got lucky.
The beach front however is all torn up, a few houses gone.

They say the storm unexpectedly sped up before landfall, which put the peak storm surge two hours before the peak of high tide. Otherwise the water would have been 3-4 feet higher than it was!

So much destruction, makes you appreciate things. I can't believe people complaining about not getting their power back on. People don't have houses to go back to and others are complaining they can't watch TV!!!

Have to add some information regarding fuel off loading in Perh Amboy NJ.

The CG inspected the piers and gave the OK yesterday but subsequently discovered that there are containers from a nearby dock missing and presumed to be submerged in the port. The servers housing documentation are under water so nobody knows how many or which containers may be underwater, so the CG is surveying the port bottom. Having a tanker strike a submerged container could cause a bad situation to get worse. Additionally the fire pumps were down. Some service restored today with additional capacity tomorrow. Several maritime laws have been suspended in order to get fuel into the port from all over the country & beyond. At the moment there are several tankers anchored off shore waiting to be brought in.

Hoping to see some improvement in supply by Sunday night

They sent a tanker/temporary filling station over to freeport cars will be filling up driectly from the tanker, well a 10 gallon max. I have been hearing they are letting first responders cut to the front so I will be flashing my ER id card and hoping for the best.

kathryn can have the light lagers, little thomas likes stout just like daddy. I will be stopping at the distributor on my way home for my own care package for tonight
