Looks like it could be a nasty storm! The forecast here keeps flipping between 'chance of tropical storm force winds and 3 inches of rain' and 'might be breezy'. Glad luck to all in the direct path!

I am square in the center of the state in the mountains of PA. I fully expect this is overated media hype. I serviced the back up generator today regardless. Hope all stay safe and we need the rain!!!!

Now there is a Brother who knows how to prepare! Cool

You all in the path - best of luck, Brothers!

The darn storm is keeping my kids USS Enterprise task force from coming home (Newport News, Virginia) when planned. They have been out to sea almost eight months now. The news media is sure giving this storm a lot of hype. Hopefully that is what it turns out to be.

How hard I get hit depends on how far south the canadian cold air mass dips over lake ontario. The lake is at 59 degrees and ripe for delivering lake effect storms if Sandy meets up with the canadian frigid air. We're expecting power outages from high winds so I've pulled out the generator for fridge and freezer, propane heaters, and have battened down the hatches. The Old Boys are full of butane, uncellared some prime weed, and have a Coleman lantern by my lazyboy. lol!

I hope your right about the hype. It looks like it's going to hit SW PA pretty good.

I hope your son makes it home soon!

KV - sounds like they're prepared. Keep us updated as the storm gets closer to landfall and you find out anything more, Brother!

Not in the direct path, but near the coast in the Boston area. We are supposed to experience heavy rain and strong winds with likely chances of power outages.

My first hurricane.

Have enough to keep me going through a couple day lack of power, but will be collecting a few more supplies today.

Those of you who are in the direct path, I wish you well and hope no harm comes to you and yours.

Bracing for it here on Long Island, expecting widespread flooding along the north and south shores. We will probably lose power at some point, I just hope its not for long, 7 to 10 days is not out of the question here. We'll be ok here though, we survived Irene last year with minimal damage.

Hang in, Mike. I don't think we've heard from Marty in a while (lipipe), so I hope he weathers the storm well, too.

We're expecting some river/watershed flooding here in NE Ohio (nothing major), and we're just dealing with the "spinoff" showers. Best of luck to all of you in the direct path!

How often have you had storms that knocked out your power for an extended amount of time, or caused flooding?

Central CT. Full tanks on all cars, cars parked strategically re: trees, 9 gallons in cans for the generator, plenty of Chef Boy R Dee on hand, batteries, decks cleared of flying objects, cell phones charged, clean underwear available for everyone for a week, etcetc.

Observation: local weather forecasts are threatening, but unspecific about specifics like wind mph. The Weather channel forecasts plenty o' rain for the week, but winds of 34 mph on Mon, much less on Tues. If that turns out to be accurate I'll be happy. If there's an outage for an extended period and there's no damage to the house, we're heading North out of the damage zone to eat lobstah dinners 'til power is restored.

Good luck to all BoBs and their families.

Since I expect to be roughing it for at least a few days, I'd say RLP-6 in No Name briars is an appropriate choice.

Added: Latest report says greatest damage expected from storm surge, not wind. Storm Sandy is a combo of hurricane and Nor'easter. It's occuring partially during a full moon which heightens tides. Since it's a slow-moving storm, there will be four tides, not the usual one in a typical eastern hurricane. Gov. urges people on the coast to vamoose, because after the first tide rescues will likely be impossible.

In northeast Pa here spent the last couple days buttoning up the house and putting things away outside.Looks like a couple days of high wind and a lot of rain, hopefully we dont loose power so the sump pump can keep things dry in the basement.

Feeling pretty prepared here on the CT shore (we are inland and on high ground, but the city abuts the shore.)

I am still nonplused by my employer's reluctance to decisively cancel anything. In fairness, it is a large medical organization, but I am at best a beancounter (and on most days, a beancounter for other beancounters)... it wouldn't kill them to declare work-from-home for non-essential staff.

Marty's here checking in with brothers. Hunkered down now for the big one. Smoking a Nording bowl of Penzance so you know how I'm suffering.
