    With winter temps what they are, I sure hope his Princess and Himself are safe and warm... I hardly know him but I sure enjoy his point of view.

    I have not heard from him since the night of the storm. He said trees were falling and laying across his house and powerlines. I hope he is ok. [​IMG]

    Wendy, I'm back and all is fine. There is a BIG tree on the roof and we were without power for 5.5 days. Quote for removal of the tree plus another in the front yard is $2,500. Insurance will cover part of that plus any damages. So far we are experiencing no leaking. After day 2 we managed to get a motel room (Sourland smelled real bad. [​IMG]). Power came back on this AM and the cable shortly thereafter. Borrowed a generator to run the sump pumps and freezer and refrigerator - Sourland blew his back [​IMG] trying to get the generator on the porch but a little pain is a good thing? All in all it could have been a lot worse.
