We were a little bummed last night that we didn't get a bit more from Sandy, but after seeing the pics from NYC and Jersey, we quickly shut up. I don't think anyone said anything for a good five minutes.

Unreal. Much love to NYC and Jersey today.

Please allow me a moment of cynicism and snarkiness.

The Coast Guard was searching for a 40-year-old man who disappeared in the waters off Milford. Authorities say Brian Bakunas was last seen swimming in heavy surf near the Walnut Beach Pier shortly before 8 p.m.


Dude, I'm sorry for your loved ones if you're dead, but if you are, I wish you'd come back for five minutes so we can all tell you what an selfish fool you were.

all those wonderful historic pinball machines... also at the Pony now?
Damn folks, sounds like mostly our people have lost material goods, but are mostly safe.
Grateful that people took the warnings seriously.

We made it through OK. Just a bunch of yard clean-up. There's some bad flooding along the beaches. We're without electricity.

Big vibes out to all those who have been kicked in the face by Sandy. She left us here relatively unscathed. But not for a lack of trying. There is damage and power loss, but nothing like the horrors in NY and NJ. Be safe out there Vibe Tribe and families.

They think Jason's parents have lost everything, but they won't know for a while though. :sad:

I kept power - very mild in my neighborhood. Still no cable, tronz, or house phone but no complaints. Neighboring town or Narragansett got clobbered (many businesses there flooded/destroyed)
