I do hope you guys won't get much damage and mayhem like I did. Stay safe, and always keep a plan of action ready, you never know what a hurricane can do.

A bit windy with rain out here, nothing much else to report.  Few areas lost power but not many

Our power flickered once, but that was it.  Had the water around the windows in the front where the wind was hitting the house horizontal.  I don't think our winds got past 60 to 65 mph gusts, which we get those here sometimes without a hurricane.  The bell was ripped off the play set out back, and all of the sunflowers in the garden are now flat.  No flooding here in our neighborhood that I've seen - in fact the drainage worked exceptionally well considering all the rain.  I do know that they have flooding a short ways north in Newark and New Castle DE.

Probably the biggest deal was the tornado warnings, which came in fast and furious for a while around 9-11 pm last night.  One doppler-identified tornado passed about 3 miles North of the house, but it doesn't appear to have touched down.

Power went out about 12:30am EST; really before the storm hit...  Power just came back on about 20 minutes ago.  Spent a good part of the night bailing water out of the sump pump well... had to break the "automatic" garage door to open it...  Hatred  I'm glad I had candles, portable generator, flashlights all ready, but still pretty f**kin' dark.   Lots of rain and impressive wind gusts, but really, I've seen worse thunder storms.

So...Irene came and went without doing anything to me. No flooding, no leaks in my home, no sump pumps.

Apparently Delaware and Jersey got the brunt of the damage.

The edited version:

"Irene came without doing anything to me."  A sad story, indeed.

We had a 24 hour blackout, power came back on around noon yesterday.  Just in time for lunch so we had nothing to eat.

According to the news coverage, looks like Vemont got hit bad. The damage there reminds me of the type of damage that happened in Newfoundland last year with Igor. Our Canadian Armed Forces did a tremendous job helping with the clean up and repair last year and very much deserves to have their praises song for it.  Irene was a very nasty storm hitting 11 states and doing damage in two Canadian provinces as well...with  I think over 50 deaths between the Carribean, the U.S. and Canada.

20 miles (as the crow flies) from landfall of the eye for me...

I moved our boat (that we lived on) upriver and anchored out...and we had a house on shore to stay.  My children never batted an eye...I have video of them playing, laughing and carrying on with the background showing trees doing the 'ts dance'...about 2 hours before the eye made landfall.

We were lucky and fortunate.  Could have been much worse.  At least one coworker of my wife still has no power; we are doing laundry and such for her family.  We had power out for about 40 hours (not bad, considering).

Some description and a few pictures from my area sorta near the eye landfall, though they have a boating slant being made for sailing forums:

Glad you're OK, Ulthar: Cheers

I mentioned on the Lost Friends thread I started for you that you hadn't posted for nearly a month.
