Luckily, for us, the storm was a non issue. Our power flickered once and it messed up my On Demand watching of the latest episode of Boardwalk Empire, but I just had to wait until the box updated itself and then I continued watching.
Our back yard looks like a pond with a creek running through it, and the pool cover collapsed into the pool, but I was able to fix the extra accumulation of water on the hot tub cover by shoring the cover up with poles, brooms and rakes.
The girl's schools have been closed the last two days and the Federal Government has also been shut down, so no work for me. Not complaining, but I actually contemplated driving down to the office today just for something to do. I quickly came to my senses and will just monitor my phone for emails during the day.
This bucket was empty yesterday...
Thoughts go out to those more negatively affected. Hopefully everyone was prepared.
