I'm more than fine here as we only got about 4 inches of rain over a few days in the Buffalo area.

I hope all of you are warm, safe and out of harms way!

We just got power back late this afternoon. We've been out since Tuesday. Our house was 42degrees! The kids and I spent the last 2 night at the inlaws as it was just too cold here for them.
Other than the hundreds of dollars I've had to throw out in food, and a tank full of dead fish, we had no other damage.
I hope everyone else is ok!

We did just fine here. I think the storm headed directly your way towards Buffalo intead of turning and heading North as expected, so we were spared here in CNY.

Nothing happened near Syracuse worth noting. A friend lost an old apple tree in her back yard, and a piece of my downspout came off... not sure that was related to the storm.

I'm glad you have your power back and are able to heat your home now!
