We are bracing for a serious hit by this hurricane here in the Mid-Atlantic. I'm at home battening down the hatches. I'll be working all day securing my house and getting the generator and provisions together.


Before I do that, though, I wanted to wish ALL my brothers, sisters and friends here on PL in the path of the storm well.


BE SAFE, BE PREPARED, AND BE CAREFUL.


I'll post updates on my condition when I can. I'd like all of you who are affected to do the same.

Lawn furniture and all outside loose items stored away or tied down, batteries/flashlights/lanterns stocked, generator checked and fueled, extra gas containers filled, food supplies gathered......as ready as we can be for Sandy!  See you all on the other side!

 From the hurricane (aka sunshine) state I wish you all up there the best and safety as it comes.  It just passed us but because it was so far out all we got was a bad rainstorm.  Hunker down and stock up and yall should be okie dokie.

 Supposedly I'm far enough inland to just get a soaking beginning Tuesday.

Got yer sump pump ready? But then again, as bad as you had it last year (Hurricane Irene), a sump pump would not have helped anyway.

Rumor has it, Sandy may cause snow showers in Ohio, depending on which way she goes.

I hear that, too, but as of right now the beakerheads are predicting this for my area:

 My thoughts and prayers going out to everyone in its path. I hope it won't be as bad as the forecasters are making it out to be.

 Prayers to all in it's path, especially those in the direct path when it comes ashore.


When it passed the Miami area it was 200+ miles off coast and we still got significant rain and wind gusts...

Being in Rochester, we won't get hit with the brunt of it but a border Patrol Agent who was at an event I was at said they were told Lake Ontario which is what borders Rochester is expecting at least 25 foot waves in our area! Far enough from the shore that shouldn't affect me but it will make it interesting for us....hopefully that doesn't happen. Right now its just very cold and windy but supposed to get even worse by tomorrow afternoon with very high winds...60 -70 MPH. Our weather people are wa5tching the snow in Ohio as we can also get hit from both directions. For my PL and other friends that are right on the shores where the Hurricane will hit I am praying for all of you and your families...

Ditto. They have cancelled school for the next 2 days (my 16 year step-daughter is a happy camper), which I think was a wise choice on their part, as we anticipate lots of wind and up to 8 inches of rain. This is the first major storm I have not worked since 1980; I have to admit I will not miss being out in all the nonsense.

Isn't technology and satellite imagery wonderful.  With the computer models all converging and NJ in the bullseye by saturday, you all in the path of Sandy have several days advance warning.  Prayers for Sandy's 'victims', all we will get is a cool dry spell.

Here's a nice tool: http://www.google.org/publicalerts


Punch in a zip code and it'll narrow down just the alerts for that area.


It looks like this far inland we're going to get high wind warning and a flood watch tomorrow,but so far they're predicting temps to stay above freezing.

 The winds here in Hotlanta are terrible! We are feeling the effects of Hurricane Sandy.  I'm really worried about the Northeast area, especially New Jersey and New York City.  Praying everyone will be ok.

 It looks like parts of Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland are going to get hammered with snow.

 Sorry.... I'm just mumbling here, staying up and not wanting to go to sleep.  As powerful as the winds are here in Georgia, I"m surprised I still have power.  I"m afraid the power may go out during the night and I won't hear my alarm go off.  I have to be at work at 8 am.  Eveyone, please stay safe and always heed warnings.  Don't try to stay in your home and weather out the storm.  There's a reason for mandatory evacuations.  God bless!
