Not much sleep here at the Ranch last night, Donna & I pretty much were occupied with keeping up with the storm and worrying about the kid’s. No matter how old they get you still think of them as the kid’s. I wanted to give you an update since the brunt of the storm has passed New York City and New Jersey. My oldest son Sam Jr. in New York City reports that the power is off about a block south of his building all the way to Battery Park, He is lucky and they kept the power on where he is at, So he had a ringside seat to the action watching it from inside his balcony window last night, He said he saw the big transformer explosion, and that all the rail and car tunnels are filled with water, for a time all the bridges were closed due to winds but he thinks they are letting people back now from Jersey.
My Granddaughter Allie in Brick New Jersey said their neighborhood has been devastated, and water came to to within inches of their front door. All the streets are flooded. Power has been out since early last night, But her Mom managed to get a generator, so they have limited power for a fridge and a few lights.
My Son Rick in Point Pleasant New Jersey said he and his wife and Mom are all okay, no power since last night and no generators to be found. but there is no flooding by them. so they are just waiting for the power, they have been told by the power company it could be several day for most areas along the coast.
So the Weibel family weathered the Perfect Storm and Donna & I can stop worrying.
Hard to imagine that places as far west as Chicago will feel the effects of this storm luckily we are to far south and won’t have any rain or winds. here a the Ranch. It is another cold but sunny day in Dardenne Prairie. Looks like our blogger friends, LEN & PHYLLIS weathered the storm in Upper Deerfield Twp. New Jersey and had no damage to their rig. We were glad to hear that.
I think Rigg’s and I will take a nap and catch up on maybe an hour of the sleep I didn’t get last night. Rigg’s is always ready for a nap.but sometimes he wants to take up the whole bed. He prefers our queen size to the double in the guest room where I will lay on top of the comforter to watch a movie and nap sometimes.
That’s about it for today, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
