his name was surprised...he was huddled under my fiancee's liberty the morning after the storm when we came to check it out & see how it fared...the poor critter was miserable looking, fur matted down from wind & rain.
I was in the Highlands yesterday helping my sister gut her house.
Seeing every house in the town with a pile of all their belongings, furniture, cabinets, sheetrock, insulation etc in front waiting for front loaders to scoop it into dump trucks is among the saddest things I've ever seen.
If you know anybody that's impacted by flood damage please lend a hand with the demo to dry out the house. Many hands make for lighter work and lighter spirits. It takes no skill to rip out soaked sheetrock and insulation. Also the faster it's done the faster it dries and less mold will grow.
it was really "only" the 50 blocks that got slammed. the dunes in the middle part of the island south to 49th or so held up, sparing those areas from damage by overwash. i live west of west ave, so most of the flooding i saw from my porch was bay & marsh water.
