We had about 3.5" of rain here at The Beach. Lots of wind, but we never lost power like some of the other areas of the city did. Hope this is the only one this year.

  Maybe there was not any major damage anywhere. 



I don't know about anywhere else, but the Tallahassee area got clobbered. As of last night, there were still 25,000 homes without power in the city and several thousand more outside of the city. Many streets are still blocked by fallen trees and power lines. 150 more linemen from S. Fla. arrived yesterday to help with the recovery adding to the several hundred that had arrived already.  Almost all of the damage is from blown over trees, but when your house has been cut in half by a 150' pine, it feels pretty major.  ;)

Yup, the news finally showed some of the damage, and it looks like the NE is being sideswiped and getting clobbered.   :-\   

More local to us are the relief efforts that are still being sent to the Baton Rouge, LA area.  When a home is swamped with water, it is also major.

Good call DanG.  It looks like the storm got close to NY and got confused.   headscratch

  I'm back home in PA now and feel very lucky that our beach house escaped undamaged. No loss of power and only one big garbage bag full of leaves/twigs to rake up, and this fall I'd of been raking them anyway. Our tides did get a few feet higher than normal but that just took some rope adjustments for the boat, water never came out of the canal. We must have had a hard rain here in PA while I was gone and I had to scrape the driveway but that's no big deal either. Good luck to those north of here that aren't done with Hermine yet.

Saturday morning I saw several bucket trucks heading north on I-75 south of Tampa.

Yeah, Florida Power sent 75 trucks and 150 linemen up here. They arrived yesterday and helped get it down to under 2500 homes without power.  Clean-up will go on for weeks and repairs for months.

We ended up with 21 inches of rain in 3 days. Hermine drew all the humitity out of the air today. I'm thinking I can hear my Twinkie calling me.
