I have a lot of family back home in nepa getting ready. My brother stocked up on beer. They won't be hit hard but they always lose power for a week or two in bad storms.

Don't forget to unplug things like TV's, computers (or disconnect power strip), fridges etc. I stocked up on wood for the woodstove but a freind said last night he has a gas stove and a gas heater and we can head over there if we lose power so I will spend this morning getting the dog's crate and other needed stuff like PJs, meds etc packed up to put in the car if needed. Please everyone stay safe and do check on your elderly or infirm neighbors if worst comes to worst. Well off to back up all the files on my computer.

More storm info. Thanks for the power help and Red Cross. Sounds like we are going to need them.

I heard on the radio that about 50,000 people in CT are already out of power.

Someone posted on Facebook a picture of one of those big trampolines up in

the air hung on power lines. Since some dingbat didnt understand the meaning

of 'batten down the hatches!'

Thus far, the biggest impact the storm has had on me is boredom. Everyone's

too busy to play! :lol:

Doesnt CT count as eastern seaboard?!?! I suppose we won't get hit as bad

as those farther south though. Thus far, it has been loud, windy, and rainy.

Sounds about like a hurricane. Couple flickers for me in the power, but no

loss as of yet. I think we might be in the clear, supposed to be more about

rain now, and I'm too high elevation to worry about flooding.

The Outer Banks got slammed. It's so so sad. Sandy was going very slow and just lashed the beach. We, 60 miles inland got rain for three days and moderate winds. I've never felt so lucky, with such destruction all around me.

Patti has just lost power, cable and all. Hopefully Sandy is "truckin'" and will leave quickly.

(I wish I knew how to post photo's from FB here)

Be safe out there.

Two reports of lost power near here. I am just north of Toronto, but my brother is in the east part of the old city, and is in the dark. Another friend in the mid-city area has also lost power. Flooding is not a problem, but in older parts of the city, power lines are overhead and wind brings down trees. Where I am, local distribution lines are underground, bu high-voltage lines are above ground. The long-range ones are really high voltage on pylons in cleared, dedicated paths. But the mid-range ones are on wooden poles parallel to arterial roads.

I have battery backup for some key network components, so I may be able to send a notice if we lose power here. But if it happens while I am asleep, I may sleep through it and wake up to find everything dead.

Still up for the moment. It rained heavily for about an hour this afternoon, letting up about nine hours ago. The wind is the worry at the moment, with strong winds gusting to 60 mph overnight.

Hey Shroomster,

What's a happening? Well,its a hurrycane. Lots of wind and rain in spurts. I checked the front door a few hours ago and it was actually a little hard to get it closed again. Strong winds ya know. There are reports of trees down and some flooding around the area. I don't think the flooding is too major but we won't know for sure until dayight. Alexandria, VA is the most likely to have major flooding since it is low lying to the river. Power is out for some people in VA and MD. Some trees in DC decided to move in with their nearest neighbors, houses. Delaware is probably quite a mess tho and the Maryland shore. Capital Hill (where I live) seems to be ok for the most part. Still have power and just a few flickers on it so far. Seems like it is tapering off now tho. I think the storm is moving North to visit Peotr's brother. Sure is a big one!

Talked to a friend in Eastern Connecticut (where I used to live), and he said the power never even flickered. He has a few TWIGS down in his yard, but that's it. Looks like my friends back there got off easy. Phew! I feel better already.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

Reports from two Brothers-In-Law . . . One in Rhode Island: Water came to about an inch below his front door but never made it in to his cottage. No power and not expecting any for awhile . . . just grateful his furniture/belongings/home are OK. Second in Virginia: No power but they have a generator. They are out in the country, lost several trees which damaged their fencing but not their house.

In our ME town I think I our road was the only one to lose power! In CT, my mom is fine, my sister and brother who live next door to each other are without power and my other sister is without power. My sister and brother will probably be out the longest.
