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!

Hi everyone. I just joined before the hurricane. Anyway I am on long island and was the lucky 10% that never lost power. No damage to our home, just a fence down. Unfortunately my father is on the south shore and lost his home to flooding. Not sure it can be fixed. It is pretty messy around here. I have been keeping busy with work (I am a RN, so no off time for me). I have been collecting donations and running them places and of course helping my dad as best as possible. My aunt won't be able to go home for a long time too, she is in Rockaway. That is about it. Glad everyone is OK.

I'm so sorry to hear about your fathers house! I can't even begin to imagine!

Quoting SamMom912:

Still suffering. Day 6 no power. Restoration date is we'd 11/7. Tons of trees down. Hubby working non stop. Sam is disaster from no structure and was crying today about how he needs the power back.

Hoping we have enough gas (shortage w crazy long lines) till power does come back for generator. I dropped my phone on Monday and had nothing to communicate with til Friday. We had 2 families staying with us during the day t and w and th... Fri they went elsewhere!

It's been crazy

I'm glad you are okay, for the most part. We were very worried about you and Sam!

Hopefully your power is back on before Wednesday!

Wow thanks I definitely will. I thought they were just for if your house was destroyed


Quoting lunabella79:

Look into fema! They reimburse lost wages!



Quoting robynjavan7104:

Thankfully we never lost power but there was a lot of flooding and down trees by my house. I did lose a week of work which is really bad considering we are living paycheck to paycheck. I'm trying to save as much money from this paycheck as possible to make up for the next one.


But I did get to have quality family time since there was no work or school. which made me realize how grateful I am to have the family I have.

Nope! They have a bunch of resources for food if you lost power for more than 5 days, for out of pocket expenses due to the storm, lost wages, etc. I'll try to get you the link :)

I am doing just fine as I am from the Buffalo area as well. My thoughts and very best wishes go out to all of you who are effected by this terrible act of nature. I hope everyone will be getting back into their normal swing of things soon!

48 hours of no power sucked but we survived  much better prepared this year then last year:)
