I am according to the news last night if this thing hits us or comes close enough it has the potential to be a Katrina. What a mess that will be. I can't even begin to imagine what will be happening here. Plus dh needs to be on his bipap & we need electricity.

The coast line of RI is a bit strange so I'm not sure exactly where we would fall. We're far enough away to not worry about sea water but how bad would the wind be? We're close enough to be hit w/the brunt of the wind.


I worked in the garage all day today, it was in the mid 90's here. I chased eric back inside twice. His breathing is going down hill tonight, he may need his O2 to sleep.

I'm in PA and I know we are fine here. But, I am praying for all of you on the coastal lines, and the islands. I have a friend that went down to OC to fix her house down there. I told her to get back to PA. Get away from anywhere that would be close to where Earl would come close to. But, I am just praying it doesn't become another Katrina!! God bless you all!

i think if your friend has already headed to o.c., she's in the process of boarding up, she should be able to get back safely.
