RE: Elaine NJ and others in harms way

the rain just started..i can hear it pinging against the windows...wonder if there might be a bit of snow in the mix? the map shows some in the flint area (about an hour north of us), but not here in oakland county (mi) even with the double pane windows it's almost drafty..may have to up the heater a bit...and change the summer sheers in the office to the lined ones sigh...

oh on lake huron they were surfing at dinnertime...people had tied their outdoor furniture down with ropes...

RE: Elaine NJ and others in harms way

I answered on one of the other storm threads, but we managed well. No damage, still have power, looks as if the neighbors are all fine--and their cars which many parked at our house, since we have fewer trees.

I'm hoping my BIL is okay--he insisted upon staying in their home--which is on Absecon Island. I know the place was flooded earlier, then they had the evening storm surge and high tide on top--am worried about him. Another sister has a summer home on Brigantine--and the reports were that that whole island was under 2-3 feet of water by middle of the day yesterday. It will be sad if the house is destroyed--my dad built it himself, with his own hands, it's been in the family for over 55 years
