Here in southern West Virginia, just wind and about 16" of heavy wet snow. So far we haven't lost power here, but there's about 60,000 around the state that have. While I was out this morning, I passed power crews from Texas and Arkansas that were brought in to help restore power.

In new york/ nj area here and things are devistating. My entire childhood at the jersey shore is gone. The beach boardwalk and all the rides are destroyed. Thousands of homes were lost. My boat on dry dock was found across the river in the middle of a golf course. Me, my family and friends and my two cars made it thru without any problems. My truck was 3 feet off the ground strapped to a frame machine indoors thankfully so it has no damage.

My job however, is a mess. The tunnels for amtrak going to NY are filled top to bottom with water. We started running trains with limited service today to newark NJ from points south and west. There is no timeline to when they will begin service to NY as not only are the tunnels damaged but so was the station and about 300 pieces of commuter railroad equiptment including 25+ brand new 9 million dollar locomotives.

The new york city subways south of 34th street are heavily water damaged some still with water in them from floor to ceiling. The timeline for restoring them is unknown. They said we are at something like 20 billion plus in damages in the area alone. I hope everyone else made it thru okay transportation, citiesm and economies can be rebuilt but our friends family and loved ones can not be replaced.

Im over in clark we just got power back last night finally. If you need power or hot water for anything let me know I am close by. I know this is hard for people so my family and friends have been trying to reach out to those in need.

Tonight history was made and the first train began hauling passengers back to NYC. Amtrak is going to be doing just fine and should be 100% pretty soon. NJ Transit is still pretty bad.
