Hey coastie !
It's alright to have warnings come to your door but, I hope you got ready for the worst just in case??
Batten down the hatches and whatever could fly off and hit windows. Hope you got all of the yard things
fixed to something solid. Watch out for those tree branches that could be possible source for crashing
in or on the roof.
Got all of your emergency stuff like flashlights and extra batteries not to mention water and food for a
couple of days too. I guess you probably don't need a generator but, if you do have one, making sure
it can start and fuel on reserve.
Your Mom could be a little scared too, i know that when they get a bit older, they don't like to have their
daily routines messed up. Keeping them busy while the storm is going on I found is the best way to
Give us updates as it goes on through the day.
They are forecasting snow for here too but, only latter this week. We are not fairing better temperature
wise either and it's been raining for the last three or four days but, we haven't gotten any high winds yet.
Hope it stays that way.
Update as the day goes along please.
That thing will get to Central Pennsylvania, take a right turn and head north into Canada to your east, but it is big in size. There is a possibility of snow here tomorrow due to this thing. May be short of extra batteries though. Got some for the lanterns, but not enough I'm afraid. Raining, but not a torrential rain by any means, but not much in the way of winds though...........yet if ever. Mom, is fine and taking it in stride. We have no trees in the yard except a big Pine at the back of the yard and a ways from the house. We went through Isabel in '03 and Irene last August ( which wasn't as bad ). No generator. I can use the UPS to keep my Cell phone charged. Just need to unplug everything from them. If it is just a prolonged event of the conditions we have now, we'll be fine. It will later this week before the storm gets up there, depending on the speed. It is supposed to slow down, but so far hasn't shown any signs of doing that.
