Daylight slowly entering the swamp, Ross Island outline visible, rain steady, not heavy. Wind due east 30-35KPH, temp mild 15C, barometric pressure steady. Appears we are on the edge of the rain event, lots of stuff inland, probably destined for the Bay later on today.

The ADVENTURE cancelled the last crossing yesterday, can't imagine too many stranded as a consequence. Rain event for our part of the world over the next day or so, SANDY not interested in getting off the front page.

The visuals for folks just south of us in New England hard to imagine. Such heavy concentration of population affected by an historic weather event will be longtime getting an assessment of the toll, human and property.

Evening,
We lucked out, plain and simple. Rachel got back to Philly late Sunday afternoon. It was nasty but nothing like it was Monday. She stayed in all day and did not lose power. NYC and NJ seem to have taken it on the chin. Reconstruction should stimulate the economy. Lots of Facebook stories from friends in the middle of the mess and what they are dealing with. I expect most of them to loss battery power on their ipads or smartphones soon.

Speaking of economy I head to mainland tomorrow morning to repair my boat. Should not be too complicated but I have a backup real type mechanic lined up if I get in a pinch. With any luck I will be home mid afternoon. Hard to tell when we get out fishing again. At 5:30AM our weather bouy 11 miles fron here gave a 19 foot sea, at 8:00AM a 15 foot sea and as of 7:30PM an 11 foot sea. I imagine it will be nasty and we are all a bit anxious as to condition of our traps after a blow like this.

Hi Rob:
Luckily we were on the outer edge of Sandy, lots of wind and rain. It was coming from the North yesterday and this morning it was coming from the south so must have been the backside of the storm.
Havn't been out and about yet, but I don't think Niagara suffered. Toronto had more damage. West Virginia is now getting a blizzard and 2 feet of snow sure am glad we didn't get that.
Thanks for letting me know about the water level by the road outfront of Marshview Cottage. Take care.

Mornin CHUNKS, weather nothing like the folks to south of us, will see what lies in store for the next day or so, lots of wind and rain in the forecast. The wind shift gradual going to southard, and declining as it changes, a good thing. No sun till the weekend, not uncommon for the easterly influence be the weather maker this time of year, at least for this time of year.

An eight hour drive from St.Stephen would put you in a different world, hard to fathom what the folks must and will be contending with for a longtime to come.

Stay dry.
