Has anyone heard from NYRita? She's on Long Island, and what I hear from my step-son in LI is that it's not a pretty sight. His tree company traveled from Kansas to help out the NY power companies.

Hey, I am BACK!!! Lost Power Monday and just got it back at 7;30 this evening. As soon as I turned on the lights I powered up the computer.

Hi people, I am fine. I am in Nassau County on the North Shore of Long Island and on high ground so no flooding worries. It has been cold with no heat because of no power and my bed is pilled high with comforters and blankets. Staten Island, just west of us , was hit really, really badly. Parts of the south shore (mostly) of Long Island have also been hit very, very badly. Even the NYC subway system had flooded and I don't think that has EVER happened before.

Boy it is no fun to sit in the dark for a week. No where to go either as no power arround and no power to traffic lights so roads are a mess. I had plenty of food and no problems here at my house. The storm was just some wind that really wasn't so bad. But Long Island, just Nassau and Suffolk which is our power company Lipa, had more than one million customers without power. They really have been working as fast as they can. And my county, Nassau County apparently had twice as many outtages as any other counties to contend with.

There are townships that they say will not get power for another ten days and then there are the flooded areas were there is not even a guess as to when there might be power again.

The mandatory evacuations where in many low lying areas and honestly, the pictures I see on the news of some of those look like a war zone. What a mess.

Last night I watched our local news TV station into the night catching up. They were showing lots of pictures. I knew it was bad because I had heard lots on the radio. But nothing like pictures to really hit home. Parts of Long Island look like a war zone. What a mess.

Rita, I can relate. When you're in the middle of a disaster zone, without power, you know little about what's happened beyond your own neighborhood, Others far away are watching constant news coverage, and they really know more! We had a huge tornado hit our town in 1991, before we had internet or cell phones, and we didn't know if it had hit just our neighborhood or the whole county or what. The next day, when the phone worked again, (but still no power, and batteries were long dead) we found out from worried family that it was a huge storm and it had nationwide news coverage. It was so scary not knowing who was ok and who wasn't. Thank goodness for cell phones, internet, twitter and all the other cool things that keep us connected.
So glad you are safe and sound.

The thing I like least is feeling so isolated. TV, internet and such just lets us have so much access to information. Take it away and I am lost. I DID listen to the radio and my phone (land line) worked so I was not totally cut off. It just felt that way. Sad

I went this morning and did errands. First off I went to vote. Now the polling place at the local Elementary School is only around the corner and two blocks up from me and since I have my power I figgured all around the neighborhood here did also. Not true. The school did not have power so they are on a generator so they could have voting.

Then I went to the supermarket because all traffic lights that I saw in town worked so I figgured the section with the stores had power. I asked a store employee and she said they got back power sunday night so about the same time as I did.

Still, there were lots of empty cases. No milk or milk products or cheeze. No frozen products. Limited fresh meat selection. Limited deli. They did have bread so at least I bought that and they had eggs so I got some. Got a tote thing of apples as I ate up the ones I had before and I got clementines. Both of those things will not got bad if we loose power again. And a cake. I eat up the cake before it goes stale. I did not buy any meat to restock the freezer as I am going to wait just in case more power problems.

I heard a guy talking to another customer and they said they had to throw out all those sorts of stuff. Me I bought mayonase and tarter sauce as I had to thow mine (opened) away. Stuff like that. Lots of bread. I could always make toast the old fashioned way.

Talked to two ladies that were customers about local outtages. One lady told me she couldn't believe what the town of OLD BROOKLVILLLE looked like, it is very closeby. No power expected to come back there for ten days and yet parts of Glen Head, right next door, never lost power. Going out today really showed me things are not soon going back to normal, even in my immediate area.

I've been without power for a few days before, but since I'd already lived in an area w/extremely limited TV, no radio, no newspapers, & pre-internet, and was already extremely isolated, didn't affect me much other than no water (on a well). But I'm SOOOOOOOOOO happy that you made it through ok! When we lost our power it was during a snow/ice storm, so all the perishables we'd just put in a snowbank behind the house & covered it with boxes so the bears / raccoons couldn't get into it. Read a lot (but I already did that) those 4 days when I wasn't out shoveling snow, or trying to crawl around on a metal roof getting the snow off the roof..

But you're OK & that's what matters. Smiling nodding nodding nodding

Hurray! Hurray Gloria!

I watched a special on what they are calling Superstorm Sandy on Weather Channel last night and I saw day by day pictures as it was covered on TV and that I had missed due to my power outtages.

Long Island still today has massive power outtages that don't look to be fixed anytime really soon. Also same in Jersey Shore and Staten Island. Now Athenea is upon us and News 12 and Weather Channel both are calling it Athenea. I am rather puzzled by the naming of a northeaster. I didn't realize they ever got names. Anyway, 60 MPH wind gusts, 4 foot storm surge tides, rain snow mix, heavy rains, cold weather and MORE (new ones) power outtages expected.
