    Looks like near where Irene hit us...Oh goody, gotta pull the boats in tomorrow and avoid the traffic jams at the ramps. Bad time for this, many mariners still on the southward migration. Hope everyone gets to safe harbor soon.

    Food and water ok. No generator.
    Looks like the predictions are fluid. Now not so bad for Maine as it was yesterday. We are near tidal water but very high up.
    Only one tree left to take down that could do damage. That one would hit the garage. Looks like it is going to be bad for some folks.
    Many years ago, I experienced a roof being blown off the building I was in. No fun.
    Best to take precautions, and hope it is a false alarm.

    According to the TV set, there's a good chance this thing will smack MD. Folks around here still remember the time this summer when the power was out for two weeks for some, and that was just a 10 minute blow. Like jharkin, most of us already have our "emergency" supplies. My biggest concern is my autumn decorations, guess I'll have to take them inside and cover the "porch wood" with a tarp. Plenty of water, food, etc. If I stay out of the freezer, that will keep frozen for several days. Guess Halloween will be a washout.:(

    <--Looking to rent sofa space from people west of Ohio. We are going to eat well in my house until Sunday, just in case there is another 2 week power outage. I am glad its not 100+ degrees like June. Come on Mobile Home don't fail me now. Be safe everyone and you may need to use those wood and gas stoves during a power outage, it will be cold at night, so you should make sure they are ready.

    So now it looks like its going to miss us... I think our old 8 inch beams scared the storm off.

    Stay safe down there in Jersey and PA!

    I'm stuck at a conference in Ohio until Sunday evening but I called my wife back home and had her pick up bar oil, gas and other supplies just in case. However I doubt it's going to be cold enough to generate the snow in southwestern PA that some of yesterday's models were prophesying.

    Well....crud...even 40-50 peak sucks. I'll bet we get higher here at the Cottage. I wonder how high up my anemometer reads before it tops out (I don't actually know if I want to find out via experiance, lol).

    Well everyone, batten down the hatches and stay safe-no scrounging until the wind's done blowing, and then be sure to watch for wires!!

    Hmmm... we got 40+ gusts a few times this summer just from strong thunderstorms. 50 sustained would get interesting...
