current mood: crappy

Boy we got hammered by her. Heavy rain and downpours since 3PM Sat, think we got close to 6" of rain, high winds around 25MPH with gusts  around 50MPH.

Lost power for about 20 seconds but it was long enough to mess with a lot of stuff. Lots of limbs and lines down in New Haven. Will be going out to if there is any flooding or damage in the area.

Hey Jedi, flubber here.

Hope that weren't hit too hard. Hearing news like yours makes me glad to live in the UK. Ok so I have lived through 70mph winds. But for us they seem to be the exception rater than the rule.

My friend who lives in one of the Southern states said that there is another coming along after Hanna. Just glad to know you are ok.

On another related note, I wonder if thats what's causing problems with the M.A.J.O.R site?

Hi flubber,

No not to hard in our area....other parts of the state got it worse since they were on the stronger side of the storm. There where lots of limbs and lines down in New Haven (about 20 mins from where we live).
There was a possible twister sited West of us in Fairfield..not sure of the damage caused by it yet.

We lost power for about 20 seconds but that was about it. some of the small streams near by flooded but nothing to bad.

Yeah the next one is Ike but from the track it is taking now it looks like it will just brush the tip of Fla and then head into the gulf of Mexico to wreak havoc down there again.

And it might very well be that...it might depend on where the server Co. is located.
