A shout out to any of my east coast blogger buds who now have no power.

Those same officials said that as of late Thursday
afternoon, more than 800,000 customers in Virginia
were without power -- 41 percent of the state --
and some 9,000 residents had sought safety in
shelters. North Carolina authorities reported at
least 67,000 homes were without power.

Hurricane force winds extended outward up to
100 miles, and tropical storm-force winds stretched
more than 345 miles. Forecasters said the storm
could dump 6 to 10 inches of rain along its path,
and warned that hurricane-force winds could
reach inland hundreds of miles from the North
Carolina landfall.

Light a candle and read a book for a change, you computer addicted geeks! (Just kidding - here's hoping your basement doesn't flood).
