    I wonder if they'll switch from WAVY to a Philly or NY station?

    Can someone at Directv please open up 390 - 398? Would love to watch the NYC overnight coverage. CNN gave a sneak peak of WCBS which was just enough to get me to want more.

    Watching ABC out of NYC on TV, channel 259. The Life Guard shack @ Long Beach NY pushed off foundation by water surge up against Boardwalk. The Beach erosion is just unbelievable. I wonder if the reporters that are outside in the elements get any extra $'s for their assignments. Good coverage from all of the local channels.

    They can't unless the local station and CBS give the ok. Also FCC rules and regs will not let them.

    Well we made it through just fine in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. No trees down around any houses by me that I can see. The road flooded up to 3 houses down last night but this morning everything is dry, probably because of the wind.
    Didn't get as much rain as I thought but our power went down Saturday morning at 11am and didn't come back till about 2:30 am Sunday morning.
    I think Isabel was worse, in my area anyways.

    Glad it's over with.

    I evacuated to Baltimore from Ocean City MD. From what I hear from 2 neighbors who stayed everything is okay. We've had worse from Nor'easter storms.
