Final talley

By: BruceMac , 2:27 PM GMT on October 31, 2012

* Road blocked by a few tree limbs.

* Road cut to pieces by run-off. I'd already talked to one contractor, now I've got another looking for a permanent solution.

* Basement and crawlspace flooding - both self inflicted. We had an unplugged sump pump and a over-mulched flower-bed that channeled water into a crawlspace vent.

* 55 mph peak gust

* 6+ inches of rain with a peak rate of 2.5 in/hr

SVEC now claims the county has 1% of customers out (123). Highland still has 99% probably due to lines crossing ridges and snow. The Gore substation west of Winchester still has 19% outages - likely the same reasons.

Ok, time to resume our lives. And I didn't even get around to using my generator!
