    Lord Vader couldn't subdue her, but the (peri-) Halloween Storm of 2017 did :(

    Fortunately, she was our only casualty overnight. Many in the Northeast, apparently, haven't been so lucky. :(

    I ain't gots no powa, man!
    The constant hum of wind, branches breaking, and driven rain hitting the house kept the family up all night. The funny part is, i had about a dozen (36-48") pieces of unsecured vinyl siding next to the house. Assumed i would find them scattered throughout the yard/neighborhood. All pieces present and accounted for. Victory!

    Damn good thing i mowed the leaves on Friday afternoon...couldn't even see the grass this morning after the damage assessment stroll, early this morning.

    I live smack-dab in the middle of one of the worst-hit parts of Vermont. The wind was so intense that when it woke me up, the house was shaking so badly, I thought it was an earthquake.

    There is no electrical power at home, so I came to my mother's house until it is restored. Now everybody can make "mother's basement" jokes about me for the next few days, even though she doesn't have a basement. :p

    You get power yet? Was talking with a lumber mill in Bristol, VT this morning. He said VT was declared a disaster. Don't know how much that is true but rolled with it ;)

    Not yet. It will probably be a few more days as I live out in the sticks. :p

    Considering how sparsely populated Vermont is and how many people were affected, it was quite a storm. In my town, there was close to 90% of the residents without power yesterday. They are slowly getting things back here and there.

    I went to that lumber mill in Bristol when I was in grade school back in the late 70's. They let each of us step in the kiln for a few seconds. That was long enough. :o

    I guess it was even worse in the late 1930s :blush:
