Yea, and the penthouse was the only part that was undamaged! My Peet  
Bros U2k recorded a peak speed of 114 before the pole it was mounted  
on snapped. The wire broke, so the anerometer that lived through 6  
hours of hundred MPH winds with George in '98, and through three  
other hurricanes this year is gone :-(

Amazing thing is the power came back in less than 48 hours, far  
easier to  face the cleanup with power...
