Hurricane follow-up: any damage plus sandbags and tree debris

The hurricane passed us, and it didn't seem too bad. Anyone have any damage or lose power? I didn't see many trees down or hear of friends with flooded basements, which is good.

Also, if you got sandbags, make sure not to dump the sand into the storm drains -- DC Water, DCRA, and DPW recommend either keeping them for next time (Katia?) or mixing the sand with soil. The sand can damage water systems and can be harmful to ecosystems.

In addition, the city will be collecting tree debris. Here's more details on what to do.
