Washington heights here. Put my shadow in a four - story parking garage. Totally eased my mind even though we got off pretty much unscathed.

Just got power back. We lost some siding on the house, a section of roof off the barn and some water damage to a bedroom ceiling. However, I feel lucky compared to what others are dealing with. Bike is still covered and will come out again as soon as this Noreaster blows thru.

All the fluids changed, contacts cleaned, parts oiled - runs as good as new. Helpful angels: wd40, alcohol, baking soda, old toothbrush, turtle chrome polish and a that honda tool set + the amount of "screwing around" that I hoped to do in years to come, all compressed in a week's time (most "disabled" week in my memory...) And this forum here - so, so helpful! Luckily, the bike was not flooded high enough to reach vital components, did not sit in water for too long, I acted fast enough with all the cleaning & preventive maintenance but so many things could have gone wrong, it's not funny... You see cars bunt to ash, as someone tried to start them after the flood. Different luck of the draw for some...

Not good! This is our marina. All these boat were hauled and blocked up. The tidal surge just piled them up like a bunch of twigs.



Our fuel dock, completely destroyed.










This was a new boat that had been hauled and winterized for the season. It ended up resting upside down in the water with just the bow eye visible. We lifted out with a crane. I was shocked that the bow eye held all the weight.

Wow, those pictures are unbelievable. I've been volunteering at the NJ Shore since Sandy. Those pictures are worse than any marinas I saw at the Jersey Shore.

Currently I keep my boat on the Delaware River near Philadelphia. Our new marina for next season is in Longport, NJ. Neither marina sustained any damage. I've been trying to sell my boat for a year now to upgrade. It was in dry dock during the storm. I hoped it might fall off it's stands. At this point I'm thinking I would have gotten a better insurance settlement than sale price!

Damn. I was hoping you fared better. Is the gas dock just the building? I can't even begin to imagine the headaches with the DEC if you had any tank issues.

The fuel dock building is a total loss. The docks , pumps, a few pilings and some floating docks were also lost. DEC and EPA were already on site. Our diesel tank is above ground surrounded by a concrete wall or dam. It is fine. The vents are 20' up and all valves were closed. Our inground gas tank is fairly new and did not leak any fuel but water did get past the fill seal which is below grade. It was not a lot of water but none the less water was introduced. So the tank was pumped dry, cleaned and is ready for spring provided the fuel pumps, docks and piling repairs are completed.

It's going to be a long road to recovery.
