We made it through with a few scrapes mostly tree debris. We had two momentary outages; one at 7:16am EDT and the other at 5:33pm both <5sec.
With the way the lights were flickering I changed my mind about the 6hour updates, between clean-up and helping the neighbors this is the first I've been back online since early Monday morning.
Rain in the area ranged from 2 to 3” up to 8” we had 3.68”
Wind started around 6am Monday and didn't let up until Tuesday morning.
Worst was from 7 to 10pm Monday night, winds averaged 50mph. That first hour it was a 55mph average.
It was strange, for about an hour Monday night from 11pm to midnight you couldn't hear the winds howling, the DW also heard the silence, then they picked up again until 9 Tuesday morning.
We figured that was when “Sandy” was passin' through.
Had a pleasant surprise earlier around noon on Monday, my auto parts jobber called to tell me he was getting 2 generators in and if I was still interested so I'm picking one up.
The truck would've been here yesterday, but there were vehicle restrictions from Staunton Va. to here so he'll be giving me a call when it's in.
