How did we all make out with Sandy?
 
We still haven't gotten our share of the storm here. However I know the most of it is over and there have been some really heart breaking news stories. A woman in Toronto was killed by a Staples sign falling from the wind.

How are our HF members doing? Is everyone safe and dry? Are everyones animals okay?

Horses fine-they are in Central NY. Here in Va a mess, but water in the basement was all we had-not great, but feeling grateful. Lost power only briefly, and new sump pump working overtime.

Well you could just have an indoor swimming pool instead of pumping it all out lol. Glad to hear you and your family are safe.

I honestly don't know what we are going to get of it. It was calling for 100mm of rain and high winds. But that has changed and it keeps changing. So who knows what we will get.

Everything is fine here. Everyone survived. Trees down and flooding issues, but nothing too major.

Glad that the damage is minimal even though a basement full of water is a giant PITA I am sure.

I'm still awed by the fact there were sharks swimming down the streets in Atlantic City. I don't know if its true or not but i've seen a few pictures.

We made it through ok here. North of us lost power but ours just flickered. I kept the horses in since Monday afternoon and they were happy to get out today for a little bit. It's still raining but the winds have calmed somewhat. I had a bit of water damage to my breezeway but nothing drastic. Just needs a little caulk around the chimney. Same for the window in the chicken coop.

Brrr, we're just getting some REALLY cold rain, that mixed with the strong winds coming off of Sandy made me bust out the blankets a good month early O_O Poor horses were shivering like crazy.
