As of 5pm today we're under State of Emergency. Expecting possible flooding, loss of power, and the likes in our area. Far from ocean but local river and creeks can be an issue just as they were with Irene.

In the same boat as most people. Hoping for the best but as prepared as possible for the worst. My prayers sent out to all in the path of Sandy especially the NJ coastliners. Doesn't look so hot for them.

Oh and good morning!

Off to get some chores done. ttyl

Not like I'm going anywhere the next few days. lol



Good luck, stay safe to you as well as to all others in the path.

Christmas cards

Dig through three foot high pile in the corner of the bedroom and see what I have for Christmas.

Measure old drapes and try to figure out how I'm going to get a picture of them to put on Craigslist. And what to ask for them. They're custom made and cost $500 ten years ago. You think $50?



You can always ask...

Thanks. Our area will probably just be a messy clean up at most. It's the other closer areas to landfall that might not be as lucky.

D'name, are you expecting flooding in your area?

Depends on how bad you want to get rid of them and when they were last cleaned. New owners will need to clean if it's been a while.

Another idea is to talk to your high school theater dept to see if they want them for the material. They can use them for stage props & costumes. Then you can write off more than $50 on your taxes. I did that with my old wedding dress.

Costco doesn't have the Christmas cards that I've been buying for years.
Oh well.

So far we are suppose to get rain, wind and storm surge.
I don't live near any water and we have had heavy rain and had no flooding.

Looks like right now they are talking about Joe, Skek and my Daughter getting the real storm.

The low lying areas have been evacuated.
This is when I'm glad we don't have my brother in law's house. He swares it it 10 feet high. Bull.

If we keep power, we are golden!
Well, except for making Rusty go out and poop in the heavy rain.

Oh for goodness sakes, the storm isn't even here and they are talking 7 to 10 days to get power back.

Best thing so far....subway and busses in nyc are shutting down tonight. The mayor said city workers should ome to work. How????

Oh, yeah, there are people who put their garbage out. W The F? Do they really think there will be garbage pickup?
Garbage out, not even in cans.
Well, it won't be in front of their house in the morning, so they don't care.

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

They probably figure the trash will be gone one way or another - pick up or winds - so no worries.

AAAARRRRRR Hubby is carrying the AC's into the attic.

What the heck is wrong with him???? We have shelves in the basement. They are full of stuff the kids came back from college with. Useless stuff that should be thrown away. Or put in that storage unit we are renting that is half empty and costing almost what we paid for our apt when we were newly married.

Why carry heavy stuff up the pull down ladder???? It is really narrow too. Why not put it in the basement. With normal stairs.

Why???

Because that would be logical. Why be logical?

Wouldn't that make the phone battery die faster?
I just saw a map of the area of possible wind damage. It went from fairly far up in Canada to Tenn to Chicago. That is huge and each power company is sort of on it's own.
Power co said it can be a week to 10 days before the power if fully restored.

One reason I like a landline. Granted, if the poles are down, it won't do you any good. But the big blow we had here a few years ago, our electric was out and the cell phones ran down or didn't work, but our land line did.

I still have the land line and I have an old rotary phone under the bed. I need to buy a push button one before they stop making them.

Unfortunately, I realized there will be no one to call because everyone else only has cell phones.

Landlines and old school phones are pretty fail proof.
I have a car charger so I can keep a cell charged. Well I have a generator and the caapability of storing 3 days worth of gas so as long as the towers are up...
I also have a 12 volt DC to 120 volt AC inverter so I can run voltage variation sensitive stuff off my car battery.

How loud are the smaller, newer generators? One problem with losing power is the noisy generators.

Hi everyone, Was just watching weather and am hoping there are a lot of exaggerations going on. However, wishing everyone in this storm's path stays safe. For sure in Florida they often make more of weather events than actually occurs, but this one seems very big and fierce. Hopefully, it will make a sharp turn and go out to sea - skipping Bermuda of course. I need to read back now because I haven't been here for awhile. Hugs to all.

It's 65 in my office but I refuse to turn on the furnace yet. Going to be 80 again in a couple days.

Do have the space heater going though.

We still powered up. serious strength of storm hits this afternoon. Basically, it's jammin' straight at us. a leetle north. My guess is SkekTek is worse off, but whether it turns south at all before the north turn determines our fate.
