How is everyone in Isabel's path?Is it a wash out?

It was among the scariest couple of days I've been through -- at night, with no street lights, it was heart stopping just trying to get around. It was hard to see a huge downed tree in the road until you were practically on top of it.
The next day, everyone was out looking for ice and gas -- and there were so few places that had either, lines formed around the blocks and fights broke out. Just awful! I was down to an eighth of a tank when I finally found a gas station and waited two hours in line so I could get the h--- out of Dodge and go home!
Then, arriving home in Baltimore yesterday ... I discovered my power out. Still out, grrrr. One friend in the county is out of power AND water, poor thing. I did manage to make it to pilates this a.m., but reluctantly decided not to go to ballet this p.m. since I have to go to Chicago for a family event... At least there's electricity there! :grinning:

We lost our power Thursday at 1pm and just today got power back. I am soooooo tired of camping out!

Any info on zip code 22201 (Arlington north of Rte 50 toward Clarendon)?
That's where I live and right now I'm on the road (see the Clavigo thread...). Haven't had any word one way or the other, though someone is staying at my house and my neighbors are the very best one could have in such an event--helpful _and_ sensible.

Things got pretty scary here Thursday afternoon. Trees fell everywhere, many uprooted, tearing up sidewalks and crashing thorugh roofs and blocking roads everywhere. I was lucky, we had two fall, out in the yard, but we almost had one big gum tree uproot and fall into our house, we could see the ground breathing! My mother was fractically clearing furniture from the front of the house, but the tree stayed put, thank God! Our neighbors had one hit their house and another uproot and fall across the street, tearing up about ten feet of sidewalk, and all of this happened at the same time, senidng them running to the middle of the house! My grandparents came over to my house for the storm, since they live on an island and the water came in their garage. What a past few days!
