    A couple of models have this hooking in across New York City/Long Island area, worth watching even though it's just starting.

    Yes, that sounds right! My woodlot was dry all summer and now that i want to cut wood it's a swamp. Just what we need, more rain!

    I have a generator now so it will surely blow off to sea.

    I am watching this closely as well. The computer is showing 70+ mph winds on that western side of the storm. This concerns me as other storms have, with the house being in the woods. US models showed going out to sea, european showed moving toward coast, now US is showing the same as well. Keep your fingers crossed, NE and new england! Gonna be alot of wood to be had. Be well

    Looks like I might be moving the splitters out of the woods if it heads our way. I'm not sure how far the winds will extend in from the coast, just a waiting game I guess.

    Your right, wait and see. I saw the computer models change since early this morning for the worse. After that, arctic temps I'm hearing.

    Last Halloween was snowed out with no electricity at my house. I'm going to move a week's worth of wood under cover before this one comes. Burning rain/snow soaked wood kinda sucked last fall.

    I'll take it ZAP. I can pick up a load every time I come back from Cranberry Lake. Let's see, if I haul my brother's trailer up I could really take a good load back! ;lol I guess I better look into this thing.

    We still have the 4500 watt generator we bought days before the ice storm of 98, a new carb was put in this summer so it runs great. I'll wait until Friday for filling the gas tanks, tomorrow I'll sharpen some chains then clean the saws.

    Stay Safe

    Its going to get interesting in the North East early next week. We have a blocking high pressure system offshore the canadian maratimes, and with the deep trough in the mid west its going to create a funnel effect right up the northeast seaboard.....with the blocking pattern in the north atlantic and the deep trough it will no doubt cause the system to weaken, but it will also send it straight up to New England (Meteorology was about the only class I liked in College, lol)

    My thoughts are is that we'll be in for a big northeaster in Nw England...sustained winds in the 30-40 range with perhaps gusts to 60 or so.....hopesully some good wood scrounging opportunities next week.
