I have relatives in Edison, NJ who are taking water out of their basements by bucket. There's no power to run the sump pump. Looks like they didn't fare as well as Princeton. I'm glad you and your family are ok, McPayne.

Hi Sandy.

Yes, there are residents in our development that had that same problem. Luckily for us, when we finished our basement, we had a new sump pump put in with a battery back up. Our main concern though was that with as long of an outage that we had, that the battery would be okay for that long, and it was.

I'll play it by ear tomorrow in terms of going to work. I saw on the State of New Jersey 511 website that the road I take to get to my office is flooded and closed.

I'm on the north facing coast of Cape Cod MA. We've had howling winds since about 3 am, and still have a stiff breeze. We we on the east side of the storm, so we got almost no rain. Our power was also out for about 8 hours. We took a ride around town, and I was amazed at the number of trees that had fallen across the roads. I was more surprised by the number of people who were stopping to clear them off the roads!
Forecast for tomorrow...80 and sunny. Just hope no one has to fly anywhere in the next few days, what a mess! Now they're saying the airports can open, but the employees can't get to work because the mass transits have all been shut down!

My son lives in New York and starts a new job tomorrow, and may not be able to get there with no subway service planned for tomorrow. What a disappointment. The office is 3.6 miles from where he lives, so he may hoof it...

I read earlier today that many subway tunnels are flooded, and won't be operational for a while. I hope it's resolved sooner rather than later.

Sandy, I read in one of the NYC papers (I forget which) that bus service in Manhattan is being restored. That may be an option to get him closer to his destination.

Now I'm reading that most subway lines will be running tomorrow, but with fewer trains. It's getting better!
