We got really lucky here. Didn't have any major damage, didn't even lose power except for a couple
of short periods. I think that between Irene last year, the Halloween Blizzard last year and a
couple of severe thunderstorm fronts that came through over the summer, plus the utility doing major
tree-cutting after they cleaned up from the blizzard last year, there wasn't that much remaining to
fall on wires. I don't think any tall tree around here had ever sustained 60mph gusts (at least not
when it was nearly as tall as it is now), so very fortunate that none of them came crashing on the
house. The big gusts were coming right from the east, roaring up my side of the hill and blasting
right against the back long side of the house. The whole house was vibrating during the peak gusts.
Reminded me why I don't live one inch closer to the coast!
