That looks really bad Mattyk. Vermont got owned too. It's funny, people here are talking about how the hurricane is overhyped because it wasn't that bad locally. They fail to realize dozens of people died, over 7B in damages and 5M power outages.

Yeah I really don't understand people b*tching about this "overhype." People should be thankful if nothing happened to them and that they were prepared for the worst.

Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

Heres a pic of my neighbor across the street 2 doors down (it hit the persons house next to him). There is TONS of this around Richmond. Fortunately we didnt really get any real flooding. Theres a 1 foot wide by 40 foot tree that is suspended by power lines i have to drive under to get out of neighborhood . Ive done it 3 times now and i cringe each time.

One thing that is quite remarkable is how fast the clean up has been. Yesterday morning there were a lot of tree like this blocking roads, by the evening the majority of them got cleaned up.


Im still without power. At least half of the people i work with are also without power. Sucks. Ive heard Dominion is supposed to come out with a timeline later today.

Yeah a lot of places in my area got hit really hard with flooding. I don't live too far from VT and they got hammered. We had some recent storms so the ground was already soaked. All this rain just had nowhere to go.

I agree, this storm wasn't overhyped. Maybe for some areas it was, but in general it's better to be safe than sorry, especially considering what happened with Katrina.

Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

I'm sorry for the damage to your communities, guys.

And yes, when it comes to hurricanes it is far better to be overhyped than underhyped.

Damn Matty, that's pretty frightening.

Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

Obviously loss of life is the heart wrenching and by far the worst thing that happened, especially that 11 year old kid from va beach. I also feel terrible for all the people that lost their homes or had property damage or money they loose from not being able to work or having to throw all their food away. But i also hate seeing a lot of these huge really nice mature trees come down, especially considering how many of them fell.
