Re: Hurricane Sandy: How did you do?

Calliope Girl was hauled before the storm and I debated whether or not that was the right move. As it turned out, she came through without a scratch, which is more than I can say for my other possessions. Had 6 trees down on my property (only a third of an acre in suburbia), including one that came through my roof and left a hole the size of a skylight as well as about half a dozen smaller ones. Thankfully, nobody was hurt.

When I got out in the morning, I was sure the boat was history. She was beam to for an Easterly blow and it wouldn't shock me if the gusts that destroyed my trees were pushing 90. It was a tough trip down to Manhasset Bay, but it turned out she was fine. While there was damage in Manhasset Bay, it was nothing like the pictures I've seen of Raritan, etc., where the boats got pummeled. Oh yeah, 8 days later and still no power. Passed about a dozen bucket trucks this evening, parked in a parking lot with nobody around. Where are you LIPA????
