I heard from my disabled friend, and she and her husband are fine. They lost power, so she had to wait till the roads were clear enough so they could get to a mall where she can recharge her chair and phone.

So far the friends I've heard from have had manageable situations (carpet damage, mostly, some roof damage.)



Edited to add that reports indicate rebuilding will take much longer since there's no longer a large pool of people willing and able to do construction and reconstruction work (many of those were immigrants from Mexico and seasonal laborers from Mexico) - and the result of the latest Canadian lumber negotiations means that lumber will be more costly (about 10% more costly, but that adds up when you're looking at the number of houses here.)
