Lost power about 8:00pm Saturday. Just got power back today (don't know when, I was at work). Still over 300,000 from my power provider (they serve about 1.2 million), including almost everyone in my immediate area.

Storm was really violent from about 11pm to 3am - guessing that is when we got the 50-60mph winds. More to come.

Some data from my area, per NWS:

Nearest buoy to me read 49mph gust at 9pm. The storm did not get intense until about 11pm. In fact, there are no strongest readings during the 4 hour period that I had the strongest winds: 11pm to 3am.

Looking at other nearby reports, the highest value on a buoy around 6 miles south of me was a 69mph gust. Again, not when I had the strongest winds.

I had no house damage other than a few shingles. One decent sized tree limb came down (about 4-5" diameter) but hit nothing. A shed that was ready to fail did (it was already having issues before the storm, and was well rusted). Down the way from me, though, quite a lot of trees went over, including some blocking roads. Luckily none of them hit power lines, meaning our outage was further up the system (the entire substation was out).
