    Although I don't live on the coast but in the wilds of Wisconsin, it was
    indeed a great morning for contemplating the sky.  I usually get up an
    hour before sunrise and hit the hot tub.  Jupiter high and a bit to the
    South.  Pleiades almost overhead.  Capella high to the North East.  And
    Mars peeking over the trees to the East as the Sun begins to blot things
    out.

    My daughter lives near Hartford CT, fortunately she came through almost
    unscathed; she reports lots of trees and power lines down and a over
    full pool but no damage and POWER.  Her first reaction after the storm
    passed was to visit some of her favorite water falls to see the effect
    of 4 inches of rain.
