I know a few of you, including myself, are in Sandy's path. MH has been downplaying it. He's so accustomed to the weather folks being over dramatic more often than not. And, this is N.E. We are use to hurricanes. But, they are making this sound like a megastorm. I'm hoping that as she draws closer, as has happened with other storms, she'll peter out somewhat...not sure about this one.
We expect she'll be blowing in tomorrow around noon. We have our own municipal electrical grid (or whatever you would call it) and we rarely lose our electricity...even it seems in the worst of circumstances. And, if it does go out, it's usually up and running within a reason amount of time. My idea of a reasonable amount of time equates with the life of my computer battery :)
I'm preparing...filling some water bottles, got batteries, the larder is full...I just heard that the more food in the freezer, the longer it'll last should there be an outage...makes sense. Got cat supplies. We'll let Callie out for her early morning routine, only because we know she comes back in around 10...and then she's in. The battery to my computer doesn't last all that long, so I might not be able to get on if the power is out for any length of time. I'm charging up my cell. I have my trusty flashlights and a couple of candles. It's all we can do.
I pray for your safety along with your loved ones. After Sandy has passed through, post in to let us know how you made out.
Sending out thoughts and prayers to everyone that you are and stay safe.
