I have to admit that I really didn't expect the damage that it caused, at least not early on when they were talking about the northern states. Usually hurricanes die out pretty quick when they get that far north. As someone else said, be extra careful, if you have damage, working on cleanup. I went through the "no-name" storm in 1993 and had the Gulf of Mexico up to my belly button in my house! I know the feeling and it is something I will never forget. Be safe my friends.
