That's encouraging! Great Lakes maritime history has quite a few examples of shipping managers who decided to ride out a storm, or run ahead of a storm, or (at this time of year) get in one more run before the ice . . . and seamen died for the decision.

I'll chime in from the jersey shore...holy sh!t..... Never in my limited experience have I seen anything like this.....the lakes by my house became inlets for a few high tides. Luckily for us our house is ok. We have a wood stove for heat and I repaired two nonworking generators that are giving some comfort to 8 houses in our neighborhood. Seeing the number of people that have lost everything makes me feel lucky. Many of the affected people are not well off....I don't know how they will deal with this.

Although I live in orange county NY which was mostly spared from the full rath of sandy, seeing the destruction to the Jersy shore brought tears to my eyes as it was like some old friends had died .

I have many very fond memories visiting Seaside Heights and nearby Lavallett when I was younger. In later years I used to go salt water fishing out of Brielle, NJ.

Hopfully, the Jersey shore will be rebuilt to one degree or another.

Power has returned -- but it was nice sitting by the fire and watching the DVD's of Cadfael and Inspector Maigret.

Wait! If the power was gone, how did you watch a DVD?

Makes you appreciate that if it hadn't been for men like Edison and Steinmetz we'd have to watch television by candlelight.

Power is still out at my place. Proably will not be restored before the weekend. The first thing that will come on in my place will be the heat closely followed by loud music....
