Just wanted to post this before the power goes out for all of you...

Please be safe and don't take any unnecessary chances. We'd all like to see you back on the other side of this storm!!


I am well out of harm's way but I know that many of you may not be. Please stay safe.

Being form south Louisiana, I've seen my share of hurricanes. Good luck all of you on the east coast. Get your non perishable foods if you haven't already. Water is extremely necessary, if there's a chance of the public water system becoming contaminated, fill all your bathtubs with water now. And any other containers you have. The water in the bathtub will be useful if you need to flush the toilet after public water has been shut off. Whatever kind of bbq pit you have, get plenty of charcoal/propane in case you have to cook on it. If power is out for a few days you can cook whatever food you have in your freezer before it goes bad. Get a car charger for your cell phone so you can always stay connected.

Yes, definitely. Somethings the local tv should be sharing, like gas up your tank. And any gas cans you have if you have a generator. Also..

Be sure you have all your medications and refills in case you have to evacuate.
Be sure your pet has food and a collar with tag in case you get separated.
Firewood if you have a fireplace.
Batteries
Ice
Blankets.
CASH!!!!
Toilet tissue
Paper places and plastic cutlery is helpful if you don't have water to waste on washing dishes.

Most of us in the south have a hurricane box with alot of this stuff already in it. You northerners don't get this weather so you don't have all that crap ready.


Hurricanes can also be fun, get all your board games out. Families with kids can enjoy some fun times without the distractions of tv, video games, and internet. No kids? Stock up on booze. lol

I'm well removed from the brunt of the storm but if it tracks inland as predicted, it's going to bugger up the weather for us nonetheless (though we're already having a crappy fall weather-wise so not necessarily a big change from what we're already getting). Take care and stay safe those of you who are closer to the action.

Hanging out in the Dirty Jerz.... Waiting to lose power... Its sad watching what is happening to the shore... Friends have been evacuated and houses are underwater... And we still have another high tide coming... Stay safe my friends!

Just got down off the roof from nailing back down a section that was about to blow off. 50+mph winds and driving rain. Not exactly when you want to be on the roof!!

The Wifey and I went shopping for supplies Saturday morning. Bought extra food, batteries, flashlights, medical supplies, ect.
We didn't go home though, we're staying in the college dorms with our friends making sure we all get through today and tomorrow.
Only good thing is that we don't have classes today and tomorrow. We're all indoors and safe. thumbright

I am doing nothing - just playing on Lush, and waiting out the storm. Right now, it is raining cats and dogs, and the wind is whipping around pretty well. Speed limits on interstate highways and us highways have all been lowered to 45 throughout Maryland, and Baltimore City has closed streets to all traffic except emergency personnel.

Heard a woman in my city was killed by a flying sign (debris) a couple of hours ago and conditions weren't even close to being considered bad (and I'm not directly on the coast either). This is one nasty superstorm. Still a few hours away from when the storm is supposed to be at its peak, so we'll see how it goes overnight.

I'm definitely expecting to lose power at some point.

Stay safe, everyone. x

It is impacting as far north and inland as southern Ontario. There are a number of areas without power as the strong winds have taken lines down. A deluge of rain is expected. All we can do is find our emergency supplies and hope it is not as bad as they expect.

The board games might be good if you had lights to see them...I like the idea of stocking up on booze though...I didn't do that enough...won't make that mistake next hurricane...

I live in South Amboy, New Jersey and we were without electricity or heat for a week...it just came back on Monday, Nov. 5...it was a bit nuts around here in the NY metro area, with no traffic lights, gas stations with 3 mile gas lines, then rationing...which probably cut the lines down to two miles, people fighting over items at the supermarket, if you could find one open...that sort of thing...

The police actually banned liquor sales in S. Amboy for a week because of fights...you can't buy liquor here until Wednesday...and if you know anything about S. Amboy, that's major news in itself that you can't get a drink here...the town has a large Polish-American population, and is sort of famous for the number of bars...

Anyway, anyone within a couple of blocks of water got pretty wiped out here...I'm about a 15 minute walk to the waterfront down here, but far enough away that I really didn't get affected...

My neighbor and I drove around the area shortly after the storm, and drove several blocks, what streets were not closed off...there was property damage, but not a lot of personal property damage...the sign on top of the bank across from where I live blew off the roof and into the street, for instance...and it's about the size of a small car...there were some down trees, but not many, and none we saw landed on people's houses or cars, so that was a good thing...

I have to say we had a hurricane last year around this time in NJ, and Sandy was much different...there really didn't seem to be much rainfall with Sandy, certainly nothing you could hear, though all you could hear was wind...and I have to say, 90 mph wind gusts are extremely loud...think jet engine-type loud...very intense stuff...

Oh, and don't try to go outside on the back porch during a hurricane...I remember doing it last year, but the winds with Sandy were so much more intense there was no way it could work...

Fortunately, I was able to get the back door closed again before everything got sucked out of the kitchen...

Have no idea what I was thinking...dontknow

Play the board games during the day time. Whistle

I wish i had posted that hurricane prepare earlier, by the time I'd done it it was too late. You'll be ready for the next one, hopefully it won't be anytime soon. Everytime a hurricane is forecast to come near here, I buy a couple cases of bottled water. I also fill all the bathtubs and any pots/tupperware that we have. I've never had to use all that water, but you never know when you'll need it.

Each hurricane is different. With Katrina my area got a LOT of rain because we stayed on the west side of it. When Ike and Gustav came through we had much more wind than rain. Blew trees and utility poles and roofs and chimney tops off. But that one we were on the east side of the eye which is always stronger.

This year when Isaac got lots of high winds but hardly any rain. Just 30 miles away and they were flooded out of their homes. YOu just never know. For us in the south, hurricanes hit during the brutal summers and warm Gulf of Mexico waters. When we lose power for days, people die because they get too hot. Especially the elderly. Up north, you have the opposite problem. Katrina claimed many lives because of people going into their attics as their homes flooded. Then the attics flooded and they couldn't get out and they drowned. Now almost every home in Louisiana has an ax in the attic, just in case.

I wish you well, it will take time for life to get back to normal but you'll get there.
