my car stayed in the garage.

My neighborhood was lucky. We had power the whole time
and very very few trees came down.

I am an hour away inland from the beaches...

The storm had some of the lowest barometric pressure associated with it that had been recorded recently.
That probably had something to do with tire pressures being lowered.

Although I took the coupe out today to put fuel in for the winter and haven't driven it in recent weeks, my tire pressures were done to 24 and I'm over 2000 miles away! Yikes!

we got hit hard on LI. 90% of the homes lost power. We were lucky, no damage to the house and we only lost power for 2 days. Many were not so lucky. Many homes were washed away or flooded with 3-5 ft of salt water. My son lives near the water and he had a 24' boat crash through his LR window. His apartment is totally flooded and he lost everything but he's young and he had renter's insurance so hopefully he will bounce back.

Luckily my cars were save in the garage. It'll be a while before I'll have time to take them out. Lots of cleanup ahead.

Glad the members in it's path are safe - at least those of you who have posted. Sandy messed up stuff something seriously.

Anyone on here know about the Copaigue-Lindenhurst area, particularly along Montauk Hwy? My wife is from there and we're curious about how they fared. The local FOX channel up there was mentioning them early, along with Fire Island, as being hit pretty hard.

We lost power for 18 hours and had our ridge vent ripped off. Nothing compared to many. And another storm's a'comin'!

I live in Babylon, the next town over and yes, we all got hit very hard. Many houses below Montauk highway are severely damaged.

Mine included.

Saved the car, but lost the house (well, first floor).

It could be a lot worse for me. Everyone in the family is fine, I have insurance and currently have a roof over my head.

We down here in Florida got "skirted" by this storm. We were rained on for a whole week+ and did received "some" wind gusts up to 50 knots, but nothing compared to the people in the NE.

My heart goes out to those people suffering from the after math and those who lost their homes and possessions. We know how that goes down here, let us hope and pray that they can recover and that most of those people were wise enough to not only have homeowners insurance, but also flood insurance..

Thanks for the report! What photos I could find were showing 20 ft. cabin cruisers sitting on their keels in the suburbs. Glad you're OK, and we'll be thinking of you all.

We're finally back on the grid here in Northern NJ after almost two weeks, car survived without a scratch too! I'm sure glad I went with conventional, 16"-on-center rafters on my garage though, the limbs that dropped down on it from the storm would have punched right through the truss/OSB system that I briefly considered using.

Out in Queens we did not get that bad of a hit. I personally did not lose power but many I know did.

If anyone is wondering where gas stations are that are running, check out Storm Sandy Gasoline Finder by GasBuddy.com and it shows a map of what stations are open and which ones are not in New York and in other states. (gasbuddy.com/sandy)

I waited in line for gas for 1.5 hours. It is even/odd days for getting gas now. Reminds a few people of the 1970's but I do not know what things were like in those times lol.

I hope everyone else is doing ok though. If anyone needs a lending hand out in Long Island, NY let me know via PM and I would be glad to make the drive out to help anyone.

Morris County took a hit

Where I am in Morris Co., NJ we really took a hit with all the trees and then the power lines down. Didn't get power back till Sunday the 11th during the 3rd quarter of that Giants disaster:cryin:. Now comes the clean up. Couple of trees down didn't hit anything but had to drive over lawn to get in/out. It's getting better but more than a few people are still out and @#*&^ off. Odd/Even gas rationing is over as of yesterday (13th)

Hang tight! My family went through all this in '96 with FRAN. What a time that was. But with good neighbors and a lot of patience, it is just a memory now...
