Hello Bobbi - keep safe in New Jersey; not sure how close you are to the shore - my wife is from NJ and we use to vacation in the Long Beach area; now my MIL & BIL are in Montauk, Long Island (just returned from a trip there) - we are greatly concerned but they are on high ground so wind/rail would be their main issues - have the weather channel on @ the moment. Hope that all in the path of this storm fare well - good luck! Dave :thumbs:

Well, still watching the weather channel and thinking about our family in Montauk, Long Island - we were there about a week ago w/ just beautiful fall weather - stayed @ Gurney's Inn on the Atlantic Coast - expect damage to the lower level buildings + wind/rain. Another concern is a lovely dockside restaurant, called Gosman's Dock (pic below) which sits on Long Island Sound @ the inlet to Lake Montauk - the current projection is a 6-11 ft storm surge in the sound; well 6' will get the water up to dock level but 11' would be devastating! I cannot even imagine the amount of potential damage that is going to occur in this storm! :mad:

Yes and Britain usually gets the tail end of the hurricanes from the states.

Well, I'm experiencing issues with electricity because of the storm for the second time in five minutes, but I still have some power going.

The wind is now really picking up.

Good luck! Wife just called my BIL in Montauk, LI - they still have power; he has 2 boats in Montauk Lake which could be gone by the morning? Who knows?

The surge in LI sound is getting above 10' - might really damage the historic Montauk restaurant that I posted before - I'm quite SAD @ the moment - I've been enjoying lobsters there since 1973 (the year our son was born!) - sorry, but this is becoming emotional for me - Dave
