    Here are some pics from Piermont NY where I used to live. The Boats on the Hudson were floating in the yards about 100 feet INLAND. People were in Chest hight Hudson river water with 20 foot poles pushing away the boats from their house's. These pics are from Piermont ave where the fire Dept push the boats for now..

    Crazy pics Glenn. We have a lot of trees and power lines down here too. One guy's driveway was ripped up when the tree at the end of his driveway fell over. I watched a 80 foot tree fall from my backyard into my neighbor's yard during the storm, fortunately it only took out a small portion of the fence.

    The gas lines are unsurprising; people probably didn't bother to fill up before the storm. It's amazing how poorly people prepare for the unexpected well in advance of the unexpected.

    As for the pics, they're mild for a storm-impacted region and certainly nowhere near as bad as Katrina was. I'm pleased the damage and loss of life were not worse. Had the system parked and rained on the area instead of moving on ... it could have been. I know that's a small consolation for those feeling the impact right now, though. :(

    SS Minnow on a three-hour tour. They still are restoring power to lower Manhattan. The number of people without power is still over one million just in the NY-NJ-CT area. I'm sure the total number is much higher considering the size of the storm. My Mom is still without power in central NJ, and they are projected to get it back late this week. How about you Glenn, do you have power?
