Here in CNY the damage has been pretty minimal. I know a couple FDNY guys and a few Long Island firefighters and they've been extremely busy. Some of the pictures they've sent me are crazy.
The Ithaca Fire Department's swift water rescue team went before the storm to stand-by and prep. I am very good friends with one of the guys on the team and they were super busy. They made 60+ saves... I'm extremely proud of them.
My department is deploying a few people (myself included) to the region to help out fighting fire as well as search and rescue operations. I'll keep you guys as updated as I'm able to.
life IS good.
