    Looking at all the damage and the freight cars on the ground, that was one hell of a storm. Storm of the century here. Strengthened to 155mph at landfall and without hyperbole, if it had another hour or more in the waters, there is no telling how strong it would of gotten before landfall. It's back in waters again and is restrengthening, it's next stop, Europe. I feel for everyone who lost a lot in the areas hit hard, it's tough to look at the images of the destruction.

    Turns out the Meteor's delay the night I was traveling was due to a down tree. Last night the Meteor hit flash floods. But appears they are still keeping Meteor and AT running.

    And it looks like Carolinian and Piedmont are resuming this morning.

    Yesterday was a bit of a mess in North Carolina due to continued power outages affecting signals and grade crossings between Greensboro and Cary. All trains lost 2-4 hours enroute. As a result 73 and 74 were canceled today.
