Easy way to pick up a few extra dollars. $5 a 10 minute shower.

Lots of roads flooded and/or washed away here. Bridges down. One collapsed on the town's water supply. The town has enough in storage tanks to last a couple of days. Cars floating down raging rivers that used to be slow moving streams. My wife and daughter are stuck up in Manchester, VT. Wife works for the town and had to go to work yesterday to help with the shelter. Roads were washed out after they got there, now they can't get back.
Basement was flooding, but I fixed the leaks and vacuumed about 50 gallons of water out of it, now it is dry.
Lost power for about 45 minutes, water was off for a few hours.

Lost a tree that missed my house only by a few feet. I'm lucky that I'm far enough away from the rivers that my husband and I didn't need to be evacuated. Businesses are under water and several roads are closed. There was a tree that fell on the power line. It dangled up there for a day, but somehow I didn't lose power.

I'm a longtime lurker here. I hope that all of you guys on the East coast are alright. This thread makes ME want to prepare for natural disasters.

Power still out and they are saying it might be out until the freakin weekend. I can believe it'll be that long but, we'll see.

My boss is dealing with the same thing on Long Island. He couldn't come in Sunday night, and now he's not here for at least another few days. His town took a big hit.

My Dad's phone company near the Mohawk River in an area which has never shown signs of flooding now has 3ft of water around it and a basement full of water. Many roads (including the thruway) and bridges are still closed in the capital region.

Yesterday a bridge on 87 was shut down due to a run a way barge that had a large crane on it, luckily they were able to stop it before it hit anything.

In my part of Saratoga we just had the lights flicker.
