Well the storm has come and gone. Power went out here in Charlottesville @ around 5:30pm EDT and didn't come back on until 4:42 am EDT. Haven't yet checked the damage to the perishables in my fridge, though I suspect the ice cream melted and the milk is iffy at best. At least the beer wasn't in any danger. The Washington Post is reporting that some 4.1 million customers were without power in the mid-Atlantic region at some point, about 1.6 million were customer of Virginia Dominion Power (including myself).
I hope everyone that was in the storm's path is safe and damage was minimal. Just wanted to hear your stories from the night.
