Having dealt with phase separation on a boat, I can do without that headache in anything I need for transportation.

Couldn't get anything good during the storm, because the tidal flooding here was only at night. Here are a couple shots to add to the mix (click on them if you want to see larger shot). Taken in the SE, CT

The two little kids who drowned on Staten Island....

Two kids as they say "swept from their mother's arms" as they fled their swamped SUV. Later found dead nearby. Suck for them. Sounds awful that reportedly neighbors slammed the door on the frantic mother and wouldn't even call 9-1-1.

But as bad as that is, reports say the Mom was driving on "Father Capodanno Boulevard" at the time. I'm not from there but Mapquest is, and that road is WATERFRONT. There are parallel inland roads. Who the heck drives their kids down a waterfront road during a hurricane.

This is an awful tragedy but looks like it was really the Mom who killed the kids by driving into that situation. Probably already dead by the time the neighbors refused her.

Even when they get the power lines repaired, expect secondary outages. We were without power for a relatively short (less than 24 hour) period here, primarily because of high winds. We were again without power yesterday for a two hour period, and again for an hour this morning. There are a lot of branches lodged in the upper story of the trees, and the root structure of other trees is damaged. Stuff is still coming down.

I talked to the crew chief during the second outage. They'd discovered a tree over the lines by a remote hunting camp. It was only a matter of time before the lines collapsed.

I've got 6 trees down on my middle Westchester property, plus a downed utility pole, so no electricity here. Driveway blocked, so can't get too close with a vehicle.

The lines are on the ground in 2 different places on the property, plus the road itself in several places. The lines were ripped from the house by the weight of the trees, hopefully, Con Ed will reattach them to the house. Based on past performance, our small road will be at the end of Con Ed's priority list. I anticipate at least another week before power is restored.

Unfortunately, the forecast is for freezing temps this week, so pipes bursting becomes an issue.

No Generator or back up heat sorce? My Generator will allow my furnace to operate, and in case of Failure I also have back up heat in Kerosine heater and also propane heaters (And of course the fuel to operate all the systems. Being up here in the North cannot do without back up systems always in place and ready to operate. Wish I was closer and could lend a hand.

I have a well prepared friend in Rockland, once he had his home and business back up and running he loaned his supplies and equipment to someone who did not have any.

Fortunately, at this point it's a second house, so we're not living in it. I live far enough away that I can't service a generator daily. May have to go down every few days to run it for a few hours and heat the place up.

Drain the lines and shut off the incoming water. If the home was built to code, there will be drain valves at the low points of the plumbing. Add a very healthy amount of RV antifreeze to the sink, shower, dishwasher and toilet drains, you don't want those traps dry or frozen. Shut down the hot water system (drain it, too) to prevent it from coming back on when power is back and you're not there.

Great advice, We have a hunting camp and keep he heated till the season is over, then do what you just stated to prep it for winter. Fill to toilet bowl with antifreeze as well.
