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!
