    Hey everyone, just got power back about an hour or two ago...

    First of all Quantam, and others with major losses, I'm so sorry for you guys, but thankful you are all still alive.

    We got lucky, lost a few more trees, one is sitting on my son's car in the driveway (treeguy promised he'd be here last tuesday I wonder where he is? lol). Out east we were incredibly lucky, Dune Road got battered and the inlet looks frighteningly bigger than it was last weekend, but it slowed the waves enough to keep the surge from wiping out our place I guess, that and the canal giveing the surge an outlet. We had water in the basement and we head out there Wednesday to start the bucket brigade, when we arrived I see my front door open and wonder wth is going on, it turns out someone who had done work for us, and still had our key hooked his generator up to our sump pump, and the water was gone. A big thank you and Christmas present coming his way. Big damage to the grounds but totally repairable.

    Wife and I spent the week burning firewood, drinking (Jack in my case Chardonney in hers) and eating Skittles that were around from cancelled Halloween.

    I'm incredibly thankful for our relative good fortune, and the fact that we may have been inconvenienced but are safe, sound, and whole.

    It looks like Unions are breaking balls; how horrific is that?
    Unions exerting influence isn't surprising, it's what they do. If they are doing it for less than altruistic purposes at this time, then they should be taken to task as well.

    I've never been prouder to be a Staten Islander. Our politicians, principally the borough president (a post City Hall sought to eliminate), have forced the mayor's hand as well as all the agencies that were not finding the "lost borough" as one that needed their help.

    Thankfully. It's weird, because the people affecting change are both demonstrably angry and humble at the same time. It's a remarkable thing to see someone up there saying EXACTLY what needs to be said and having it actually result in something that works.

    Glad you're okay.

    I'm now at 96 Hours and 43 Minutes without power. All together fortunate that I've got a gas fireplace and gas stove and stocked up on soups and breads and gasoline before Monday struck.

    True that. There are billions of people of people in the world who live every day without power, without a gas fireplace and gas stove and without a stockpile of soups and breads and gasoline. When the meteor hits, they'll be the ones who survive. In theory, anyway. Except we'll have better guns.

    I've been checking in on the thread every hour or so and it's been good seeing most of our known faces showing back up lately...

    I know a couple are still missing but I hope they're just busy with life at the moment and that they're safe, along with their loved ones...

    This storm was a massive clusterfvck... Most of my family is in southern CT and CL&P being notoriously horrible as it is still doesn't have power to most of them... Inconveniences such as theirs pale in comparison to Q's/Stokes/etc... Jesus guys, so sorry for what you're dealing with

    Sorry to hear that SAR. I assume you have a gas water heater since you have a gas stove and fireplace.

    Hang in there.
