In the Snow :)
Have you battened down your hatches and tied down your patio furniture? And if you're in western PA/NY/etc, gotten your snow blower ready?

Be safe people and may Sandy treat all of our East Coast peeps very, very well.

We are in western PA and as far as I know we are only getting rain. Did I miss something?

I heard that western PA and NY may get pretty heavy snows.

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
Stay safe folks. There were some diehard fans at that eagles game yesterday - sitting there in the driving rain and cold..... I suspect more is on the way.

Last night they said some places could get a foot of snow, and snow on trees that still have their leaves will be more fallen branches, more power lines down.

I hope everyone stocked up on food and is ready to hunker down for a while. Be safe.

They were showing empty store shelves along the east coast, but they were puzzled by a run on hair spray and gin in Jersey.

We never seem to get any good storms anymore in the upper midwest... eastcoasters are getting all the fun ones now. frown

Hoping that all stay safe and sound though!

Eastern PA checking in here- Bank is closing at noon today and possibly tomorrow. Considering Philadelphia Fed is closed- not much work going on. Why is it customers just have to come to the bank in the worst weather? Perhaps it is to get money to go to the liquor store. Can see the liquor store from my office and they have been non-stop all morning.

Hope everyone stays safe, warm and dry!

Here in MA we're closing at one, wish it was earlier, wind is picking up bigtime and there are lots of tree lined streets, should be an interesting ride home. Then I'll head home and watch the news and freak myself out. grin

Wherever the plane lands
My friends and family in the South Jersey and Atlantic City areas are posting some scary pics on FB!

I hear that a large portion of the AC boardwalk has been destroyed and half of a pier in Ocean City NJ is gone. And the storm is still 200 miles away! eek

If God sent Katrina to wipe out the homosexuals(Decadence Festival) is it safe to assume that God is trying to cleanse the earth of Snookie and the others from Jersey Shore?!

But really - everyone stay safe!

I watched an episode on TWC "It could happen Tomorrow" about a 'cane coming in at NYC...other than it was a Cat 4 (I think) I guess it proves it really can happen!

What's freakier than watching TWC during these storms is your power/satellite going out and NOT being able to watch during these storms. eek

Life is going on as usual here in western PA. Sounds like the snow is going to be in central PA in the mountains. We are going to dig our generator out though just in case.

I had heard that for Long Island and NYC from a local News Paper and then a "real" weather person said that there was no chance.

Zactly! Lost cable for a bit this morning but that is back. Power still out and expected to be out for days but we have a generator, bought a ton of gas for it yesterday. Just stepped outside, getting wicked windy and raining.

We're surrounded by large, shallow rooted pines on three sides. One took out my neighbor's house last year. That leaves three sides of potential house wreckers. I will not sleep tonight, especially as I hear the crack boom of trees being blown over the neighborhood. Can't get that sound out of my head. As we are surrounded by mountains the storm last year just circled our area and picked up intensity. Looked like a giant boulder crashed and rolled over the trees. They were down everywhere. Go two blocks and they had no damage at all. never thought I would reside in an area that has to look forward to this type of storm every year....
