There are hundreds of houses like this one near me. This particular house is a historic land mark. George Washington slept in the house.... Our offices are still under water...

Oh shit! That puts some perspective on the flooding. Hope you got it and yourself out of harm's way.

I hope that everyone is well stateside.... we hear a lot about the storm on the news here, but can't really comprehend the scale of it... when they say it's "the size of Europe", that's pretty friggin' big!


anyway, good luck all. keep roverin'

A lot of mess for a young storm, it was born in the Caribbean sea, didn't came from all across the Atlantic.

Here are some photo from my place. I ran out to move my trucks and 2 cars floated by me. It got scary real fast. The river breached and the water filled the streets. creeps up on you real fast. most surreal thing I have ever seen.

Katie has a bunch of pics from the drive today and last night of the shore towns.
Belmar is washed for the first 3 blocks I was about 3 blocks away from ocean ave and was seeing parts of the board walk, good 10 and 20 foot sections, crushed reeds everywhere. Avon was washed out a few blocks in and on the inlet side. Saw parts of the playground slide a few blocks in. Part of 35 around Shark River was flooded when the river went over its banks.
Spring lake and Sea girt had blocked off all their roads with garbage trucks, trailer long dump bins at the rail road tracks to limit who came in and in Spring Lake they were checking ID's to see if you lived there.
Sea Girt only one road in and out by the NG/state police base. Far as I can tell the ocean came over the dunes and was down more then just a few blocks. Manisquan under water, in that town I saw boats on the road and a restaurant fridge unit washed onto the street.
Asbury Park was washed as well. The lake on the north end rose and breached its banks and flooded the houses big time. The east end connected with the ocean. I mean the sand was at least a foot thick where there was a road when I was driving over it.

Trees down every where, no exaggeration. Intersectons blocked off due to no power for the lights up and down the shore and Im including rts 35, 36, hw 71 etc. Therefore zigzaging around in order to get across only so many intersections are open to cross over.

No gas stations open again no power.

Shoprite on 36 open, Wegmans on 35 open (people were charging their phones with the exterior outlets, lol), Shoprite on 34 in Brielle(?) open those were the only ones I saw open. Random convience stores were open because they were running on generators.

The lakes between the towns on the shore were way way over their banks.

Electric company shut power off last night. Was out for most of the day and came back on around 10pm.

As I hear it from one of my friends all the beach clubs in Sea Bright are gone, Donavans is gone. Monmouth Beach is flooded, houses are flooded out.

The FEMA flood google earth maps were dead on.

The damage done to the coastal communities and nearby areas is far worse than I imagined. My heart goes out to all those that lost homes, livelihood and loved ones.

Hopefully not everything you predicted came true. Your 2A stuff was outside the paint shop and was blown/washed away?

I think he just got it and doesn't know how to lock the center diff. A prius could get out of that hole. Kind of looks like a rhino at a watering hole.
