    So, I've been taking tons of pictures of the storm and water so I decided I'll first hand report from my house on the storm. I live really close to the water so I'm literally in the ****.
    Here's a link to my album on facebook its public so all can see: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.509319925745988.122921.100000039546527&type=1

    We are staying home we live up the street on a hill. If the water is reaching my house there are bigger problems than just flooding, but people on the bottom of the street are supposed to evacuate. Person whose house I was standing at decided he's not leaving until the water reaches where Irene reached.

    You are about an hour from Hartford. Can you heat WTIC News/Talk 1080? They are doing a lot of Sandy information.

    Yah I think so. But I've been getting most of my info from WTNH, facebook, patch, and UI on conditions and outages. The pic is from a local teen on the other side of town she shared it with our local news network and its gone viral locally.

    Well the flood waters receded even with it being high tide. The street has tons of debris and sand. Just refilled generator its running great only doing two fridges, small energy efficient light and phone chargers. It only burned about 1/2 a tank in 4 hours which is great, but the gas gauge sucks. Tahoe is still safe and will be geeing a work out tomorrow cleaning up and will get a bath to remove the salt and leaves on her.

    Roads are closed to remove debris and sand and put sand back on beach. This blows... so day two with out power and running our little generator. Yay life by candle light.

    Well will have to shut off generator tomorrow to change oil and let it really cool down, by that point it will have been on for 30 hours. Will be getting synthetic for it so it'll run better and longer. Tomorrow will also try to figure out how bad rest of town is.
