Rain & Wind Bands from the outer edges of the Hurricane are just starting in Eastern Ontario…

Current temp is 14 C (57 F) which is fairly balmy for this time of year.  We are getting a light rain, and winds in the 32 Kph Range (20 Mph) with the occasional gust to 50 Kph (31 Mph) so still very very tame here !!

They say the BIG stuff will get here over the next 48 to 72 Hours.

@HappilyEverAfter54:  Everyone and their mom is getting hit but me. Even my husband at work, which is 30 some minutes away. Its rain/snow mix for me right now. It is 33 degrees F. But the weather channel says it feels like 24 degrees F.

Here is a photo of where my Dad lives. About an hour and a half away from me.

Following this while I was at work today. Hoping everyone is staying safe! 

I read that it’s hit Washington, how close/far is that from Seattle? We’ve got friends there and we haven’t heard anything.

Well, here’s a shot of the street in front of my apartment last night: https://twitter.com/ramgopal5/status/263084483035684865/photo/1

and some video: http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-867447

Luckily we’re not there–my office has DH and me staying in a hotel in midtown Manhattan so I can get to work (where I am now). But I can’t believe the flooding pics I’m seeing. I live in Jersey City, next to Hoboken, and it is insane there. I have no idea when we’re going to be able to get back home. And honestly, I’m kind of annoyed that I feel like there is virtually no national coverage of that side of the river (and I work in news!). It’s all about lower Manhattan when the opposite side of the river is flooded just as bad. Hoboken has called in the National Guard and the mayor of the city estimates 50 percent of the city is flooded, but I have yet to see a correspondent reporting from there.

Virginia checking in… we had a lot of wind & rain but are so SO lucky that we never lost power.  Many people in our area had some flickering, but I don’t think ours did at all.  We tend to be very lucky in these situations… I don’t know if we just have the best power grid in the state or if it’s just luck (even last year’s ‘hurri-quake’ only knocked our power out for a few hours- the people who lived across the street from us didn’t have power for like 4 days or something.  So odd.

Anwyay, how’s everyone else doing?  I’ve been in touch with a few other Bees who live in NoVA/DC and they’re doing ok.  No power for some, but otherwise everyone is safe.

Anyone hear from Rouquine?  I know she was very close to the brunt of the storm & she had been worried about her brother… any update?  I imagine the internet is down in the area so if anyone can let us know if she’s ok that would be fabulous.

As for everyone else affected by the storm- thoughts & prayers for a quick return of power and know that there are a LOT of people sending out positive thoughts & lots of prayers 🙂
