I gotta give kudos to DirecTV today ... I've been watching the Weather Channel & my local weather on TV all day with absolutely NO rain fade or pixelization ... an I'm on the DelMarVa Peninsula, just about 100 miles south of where Sandy made landfall in New Jersey. We're still experiencing significant sustained winds and gusts to 50-60 mph.

I still don't have power at home in NJ so I don't know if my service is functional. The dish is still on the roof. However, up to Monday with the fiercest winds, my service was 100% and then the power went out which Directv can't control. I have gotten emails from them. They have even stated that they would provide a credit for the loss of service. I think it is a great response from them and a testament to their technology that even with some good rains and 80 mph winds my service was unaffected.
