    Not sure if you have a basement or not, but if so, did it flood? Any trees or branches down? Shingles still on your roof? Basically I am asking for the low-down.

    Lost power (not me, M Richardson, the electric), but good news: no water in the basement. Leaves (plural of leaf?) everywhere, but no property damage. I'm at Cathy's (the fiancee) daughter's house now, so I'm able to go online, but will be going home to flashlights and candles soon. Glad everyone is doing well.

    No basement, Crawl space.
    Yard was not even soggy.
    Most of the flooding in the are is gone.
    Lots of trees and limbs down everywhere.
    No loss of shingles on the roof.

    Good to hear, Whippet. Not sure how long you've lived there, but I hope this is the worst you have to deal with and your move was a good one. Keep rootin' for the Bucks, though!
