Talk radio hosts are saying the storm was all hyped up.

I disagree. This video is from a town 15 mins from us..we just got our power back (and we are all fine, just some water in basement and warm beer)


so much for the tropical storm

Hope you guys are doing ok... I'm over here in Saratoga, NY and we survived pretty well. It really was lighter here. But South of us near Schenectady and Schoharie are still flooded. The water is what did us in... not the actual storm itself.

I feel blessed compared to others...one of my daughter's HS classmates lost their house on Sunday, and it was his birthday...

We lost power and had a flooded basement .. big deal - right ? Glad you are well in Saratoga (which I still want to visit - wife is big into horses)

Glad to hear you're OK. Flooded basement here. The damage in the state is incredible and will take a long time to repair (some of it can't be).

Funny story though, my basement was flooding with the overwhelmed sewage system. What do you think I saved first??? Brew stuff! Then holiday decorations, tools, etc.

Well Thursday would be a good day to visit. Saratoga ThrouroughBrew's meeting at the Saratoga Brewery. You could see the horses and try some Homebrew!

It is incredible to see this kind of destruction first hand. Never seen anything close to it. I have friends that are getting supplies by helicopter because they can't be reached by the roads. Some tough woodchucks up here though, we will make it through.

That was a strange storm. I live in Northampton MA and the eye basically passed right over me. I never lost power, in fact I brewed that day once it seemed like it had past. There was some minor flooding near rivers, but nothing major.
But just up in Greenfield there was major flooding. 91 is still shut down for some parts. I can't believe what happened in Brattoburo, and other places seem to have been hit worse.
