After 3 days of rain and now the wind I am taking in rain leaking down into my apartment from the upstairs apartment coming in directly over there back windows into my apartment. No one lives up there and I'm guessing
the windows up there can't handle the rain. This didn't start until the winds picked up. Also about an hour ago something hit the side of this building and rolled off of the roof. I have no idea what it was. I live in Niagara Falls we have enough water here don't need anymore. One good thing the Niagara won't over flow because of the falls, don't have to worry about flooding. Just worry about everything else.

I still want to know what hit this building and rolled off of the roof, I guess I'll find out tomorrow, maybe.

I had been watching a local site which was giving regular updates on downed wires, trees down, roofs blowing off, and tons of wind damage.

I guess they gave up keeping up, because this was their latest post:


10:27 p.m.
Reports are too numerous to track at this hour for wires down and trees into homes and cars across the region.

My sister lives in Conshohoken, PA, very near Philadelphia, and we have been text messaging. She told me the power JUST went out for them.

Are you along the coast?

I heard quite a few places are out of power.

My husband was down in Wickford helping a friend who owns a building.
He came back drenched. I asked him to get pics but he didn't want his phone getting wet.

At least my baby is a bit older this time - last year sucked because she was only 3 months old when we had last years storm.


I'm safe where I am, not on the coast. I don't hear the wind anymore, seems to have calmed down, but it's too dark out to see anything. I know, a lot of Rhode Islanders are without power. We just had power flicker a few times throughout the day. Yeah, I bet it's rough in Wickford.

I wish I could sleep too

I even tried Sleepytime Tea.

But, the wind and house shaking won't stop, and my phone keeps ringing and texts keep coming in from family and friends. Of course I initiated some of those checking on people. Our power keeps blinking off for a few moments, so waiting for it to go down. My brother is having a fit because shingles blew off his house and hit his car. Boss called to say she does not have power and I might need to post the closed notice on the news site tomorrow, because I'm one of the few left with power. My parents don't have power. etc. etc. But all-in-all, every one of our issues can't compare to what is going on in NJ and NY. I feel so much for what those people must be going through... that it has curbed my anxiety here.


Hang in there BlueAjah. Clear heads prevail in situations like this.

It's just fancy software. Notice how when you zoom, you lose focus. It's the webpage just allowing you to zoom and move around the larger picture, just like it can do with a jpg.

Fill water jugs to drink,fill your bathtub to flush the toilet using a bucket to dip it out.

Grab any sleeping bags you have,comforters or whatever,so you can coccoon up grandma if the power goes out.

Drag her bed into a hallway near the center of the house and close the doors to all the rooms in case the windows blow out.

This isn't such a big deal unless you keep panicking like it sounds you are from your post.

Calm down.

Was watching the 'series' and I wondered; WoW! there must be alot of RATS crawling around with all of the flooding. Just make sure you close the door behind you on the way out. There are millions upon milliOwn-es of Rats the size of cats in NY. Been there, seen tis n tat at least 6 times now. It was an amazing Xperience in many ways. Usually went to various weddings, once on vacation, once on a mission. Anyhow, thought I'd chime in bout da rats. L8ter folks and hope you invited a relative, friend, neighbor over in the time of need.

I was talking to a buddy of mine earlier today about this, he asked, "what do you think will happen to all the rats?"...I had zero answer for him, he said maybe they will all migrate out of the city limits into the suburbs away from the storm water... Could you imagine that???

Going to have to turn off my phone soon to save the battery until tomorrow. Still high winds here and some rain. Really cold too.

And I'd like to say its situations like these that show that ATS members, more than most other sites really are like a big family. I've enjoyed hanging out with you all to get updates and well wishes from. Sleep well, everyone. Stay safe.
