Minor Sandy damage but no power loss north of Baltimore

We live north of Baltimore, and the amazing thing for a rural area was we never lost electricity. We lost gutters, slates and siding for sure; but the electricity has stayed on. 

We do have a huge old tree blocking our main door. That said, it fell in the one direction it could do the least damage. We have one weeping willow left, and during the worst of the storm, the fronds were horizontal.
