Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I spoke to a friend of mine in Cleveland, she said she was snowed in. The only thing I could tell her was "i'm sorry". Clear skies here in SoCal.

Friday night I had to take cover as 3 tornadoes sprang up around my area. (I live near DFW airport). None hit where I was, but that's the closest I ever came to being in one. The wind was terrible, baseball-size hail, storm sirens going, etc... then about 30 minutes later it was over (for me) and I watched epsisodes of the office season 3 that I had downloaded, lol... so all in all an interesting friday night

Record storm pummels East Coast By DAVID BAUDER, Associated Press Writer
1 hour, 15 minutes ago



CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. - A menacing spring storm punished the Northeast for a second straight day Monday, dumping more than 8 inches of rain on Central Park and sending refrigerators and pickup trucks floating down rivers in one of the region's worst storms in recent memory.

"This one is really a horror show," Gov. Eliot Spitzer said after touring hard-hit areas north of New York City.

The nor'easter left a huge swath of devastation, from the beaches of South Carolina to the mountains of Maine. It knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of people and was blamed for at least 12 deaths nationwide, including a New Jersey man who drowned inside a car.

The storm showed no immediate sign of letting up. The National Weather Service predicted showers through Wednesday night in the New York City area, with rain mixed with snow at times.

The storm was especially harsh in the Westchester County suburbs north of New York City and in New Jersey, where the state was placed under a state of emergency and more than 1,400 residents were evacuated many by boat.

Vermont got about 17 inches of snow, with flakes still falling Monday across sections of Pennsylvania, New York and Maine.

"We have incredible amounts of damage," said Steve Costello, a spokesman for Central Vermont Public Service, describing power lines brought down by high wind. "I've never seen anything like it."

New Jersey authorities called it the worst storm to hit the state in 15 years. Five homes burned down in one town after fire crews could not reach the buildings because of floodwaters.

"There was debris flowing down the river like you wouldn't believe refrigerators, I mean, you name it, it was going down the river," said homeowner John Vitro, whose basement at one point had water 5 feet high.

Wind gusts registered 60 mph near Boston, where runners had to contend with rain and 52 mph winds during the Boston Marathon.

Gusts exceeding 80 mph in Maine toppled trees and drove rain that flooded roads and sank boats. In New Hampshire, a landslide forced the closure of part of the state's major east-west route, and winds blew out windows on oceanfront stores.

In Maine, a woman and her 4-year-old granddaughter died when they were swept into a river by the fast-moving floodwaters as they tried to cross a washed-out section of road in Lebanon, near the New Hampshire line, the Maine Warden Service reported.

A 52-year-old man died in a car stalled in deep water in an underpass in New Jersey, while a 79-year-old man also drowned a flooded street. Another person was killed by a tornado in South Carolina, and two died in car accidents one in upstate New York and one in Connecticut. The same storm was blamed for five deaths earlier in Texas and Kansas.

In New York City, more than 8 inches of rain fell on Central Park, quadrupling the 101-year-old record for the date. In Croton-on-Hudson, north of the city, half of the commuter train station's parking lot was under water.

In nearby Mamaroneck, firefighters plucked Kathleen Reale, 41, and her twin boys from their window using a front-end loader. Knee-high flooding destroyed furniture in her garage and basement.

"I mean everything will be ruined," she said. "Everything will be gone. It's unbelievable."

Snow drifts stranded tractor-trailers on highways in Pennsylvania. Washouts, flooding, mudslides and fallen trees blocked roads from Kentucky to New England.

Pounding waves completely covered the beach at Hampton Beach, N.H., where residents reported up to 5 feet of water pouring through their front doors.

"We went to look, but the wind was so strong that you couldn't walk ... The wind just turned you back," said Linda Pepin of Bristol, Conn., who owns a condominium less than 50 feet from shore.

Coastal residents were urged to evacuate in parts of Maine, where Amtrak's Downeaster suspended service because tracks were washed out. Flooding delayed or canceled Amtrak service between Boston and Washington.

The storm also grounded flights at New York's three major airports. Some stranded passengers slept on cots at LaGuardia Airport.
