We got a lot of rain. More than 12". We had a ton of wind. Lots and lots and LOTS of wind.
My little girls were in my room this morning at 7 a.m. - on a NO SCHOOL DAY, this is tantamount to a sin - scared because the wind was whistling and making scary noises. (Their bedroom sticks out and the wind does whip around it.)
But, overall, we were fine. Again. Lucky, once more. It's still raining right now and forecast to rain for the next day or so, but the wind has died down a bit and the storm is well past us.
The last couple of storms we've had were much worse in the hype than actually panned out - and while I'm not silly enough to start to take these things less seriously - we've made it through unscathed.
Some pics of my home town - I didn't take any of these, but they circulated Facebook and Twitter today, so if they are yours PLEASE let me know so that I can give proper accreditation:
This is the oceanfront where I take my kids - the beach is usually about, oh, 30-40 yards deep, according to my husband (and depending upon if they've replenished the sand recently).
