mostly missed

We were mostly missed by the bad stuff and we are glad. We have power so over all we are ok!

Southwest Virginia is very small piece of a huge mosaic of Sandy’s effects, but power outages in the thousands have resulted from winds that were sustained as high as 40 mph and gusted as high as 60 mph at Roanoke Regional Airport late Monday evening and early Tuesday morning. Several locations mostly above 2,000 feet and west and southwest of Roanoke saw a rare October measurable snowfall, though amounts are mostly light, owing to strong winds, warm ground, and most of the heavy snow having tracked into West Virginia and far southwest Virginia as projected.

Basically its windy here ... but we are all ok!

Hanging on

Things here in SWVA are blowing right along ... :-) the wind has picked up some and will continue to through out today and tonight .. Im just hoping for NO snow ... I dont really like wind but its better than snow ... would rather power not go out but if it does we will be ok. 
Right now this AM we have 10-15mph sustained winds ... thats suppose to pick up to about 40-45mph with gusts of about 65mph ... they think we will get about 4 inches of rain over 48hours which we can take on because we are considered dry - higher elevations near here are getting snow ... boo
