    I did fine. All family members in Delaware were highly lucky, and got off with no damage and little more than some frayed nerves.

    Look up Breezy Point, NY and see what happened.

    Ah, so that's the neighborhood that burned down? But trust me, there are worse things than that.

    I think that is actually fire damage, But I think the flooding kept the fire dept out of the area.
    I used the phrase "run from the water, shelter from the wind" it is very true.
    The tidal zones are deadly places, our society makes mandatory evacuation a hard choice.
    In the gulf coast, they told those who stayed to write their name and SSN on their leg in
    permanent ink, to make it easier to identify the body.
    These storms are nothing to kid about, if you live less than 20' above sea level, and 2 miles from a coast,
    you could be at risk.
    I know this does not happen often on the norther east coast, but it does happen.
    Before buying a home, get a geographical survey map, and draw in a 20' storm surge.

    Yes we were lucky here. People in other areas, not so lucky.

    I wasn't aware that this was some kind of competition about storms and natural disasters, but apparently some people want to make into that. I guess if the storm doesn't measure up to Katrina it's just not worth talking about for some people. If that's how they feel, why can't they just keep their big mouths shut then?

    Ever hear that saying, "if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all." If you don't care about this natural disaster and you don't think it's worth discussing, then you don't have to participate in the conversations.

    At the last count that I'm aware of, 40 people lost their lives due to this storm.
