I work third shift in a large manufacturing plant.  Michael came through in the early morning hours, lots of rain and some gusty wind.  Starting about 3am, the day shift employees started blowing up my phone wanting to know if they had to come in for work.  I told them to get their lazy butts in to work.  I didn't exactly use those words, but I should have.

1.6 million without power.

Some places unrecognizable, landmarks gone, no getting your bearings. Weird feeling!

Our property safe, but many just gone.
