On a serious note, I hope you guys made it through safe and with minimal damage.

Wind gusts currently between 65 and 70 mph, and the next 6 hours or so are going to be pretty nasty. Power is still on, but I'm switched over for what I need it for. Only last thing to plug into it will be the main refrigerator. No hint of overloading, but the number of extension cords running through the house is comical.

Does it concern anyone else that Craig has extension cords running all over his house and Aerovette is posting in this thread?
