    The storm is still going on-right now pouring in Rhode Island and dropping sleet on the AT in Hamburg winds up on the trail are 8 mph with gusts to 22mph... the fallen apart eye is somewhere near Pittsburgh PA

    At the Indian River Inlet Bridge (almost the bridge to nowhere) the road bed which was protected by dunes was shown clearly removed on both sides.... Rehobath to Bethany is cut.

    We're fine in central NC, just a little wind. My folks north of Philly have no power or phone since yesterday when a very large oak came down in their yard, grazing the house. They should be ok, but it's getting a little cold.

    All the damage and unfortunate problems are all Obama's fault.

    Funny - I was over at the church attempting to blow off the parking lot when you posted this - I didn't finish. Rain was very heavy for a couple of hours.

    Actually Trump has access to the underground tomb where Obama's Harvard grades are kept and has discovered he blames his prof & the anointed one for being lenient.

    All Joking aside Sunny walker - thanks for the pun.

    Just got my power and heat back after a day without. A lot of downed trees and property damage here. My heart goes out to those who have major losses.
