Darleen hope you stay safe during this storm. We are expecting to be hit pretty hard here as well. According to our local weather they think Sandy is going to arrive Monday thru Tuesday with winds up to 80 miles per hour. Because we still have leaves on the trees they are saying we could have lots of trees and power lines down.

Oh Darleen I'm sending prayers that you don't have to go through another flood. I'm on the South Shore so we're expected to see some very strong winds and downpours. They're saying we'll lose our power as well. I hope not. I hope that all of our boomer family and all of their families stays safe.

I'm on my way back to work. My clients live close to the shore. Man, this could be scary.

If we do, I will be lost without BF and GB'ers. But I have plenty of chocolate and batteries, so it should be ok. Everybody in Sandy's path, stay safe.

My prayers and positive thoughts for all those who are in Sandy's path. I especially pray for the first responders who are out in Sandy's way ready to come to the aid of those in need. They are putting their own lives at risk for the sake of others. We have one of our own out there.

I do hope that everyone is taking all necessary precautions. This is going to be a rough ride. We should be okay but the winds have picked up and sounding scary. Sandy is still south of NYC.

Stay safe on the East Coast!!!!

This storm is making me nervous: they say it could be the worst we've ever had.
It's windy now, and supposed to get worse as the day progresses.
I think it's not IF we lose power, it is WHEN and for how LONG we do.

Keep us all in your thoughts; this is going to be a rough 2 days. : (

Well, it's been storming here all day. When I was walking to my car after work, I was stuck in place for a minute when I was crossing the street, as the wind wanted to blow me the other way. shame I . . . don't think I'll be going to work tomorrow. lol

Darleen, so sorry you had to evacuate yet again. sad Hope you are staying safe.

Mary, glad to hear you are prepared with all the chocolate. lol

We're okay so far. It's expected to really hit at six, so I'm going to do any electricity related things I need to get out of the way now, just in case. I'm hoping we keep our power, but best to be prepared. We have flashlights and batteries. And chocolate, too. grin

Becky is without power right now. They had stronger winds and rain earlier today.
The family has their gamepads ready and working.

My area has been extremely lucky. We continue with rain and winds gusting to 50mph but locally we haven't lost power. At this time there are only 2 alerts/warnings and they are for flooding and winds.

My prayers go out for those caught in it's fury. I see by the weather channel how devastating this storm has been. I pray that all those affected will be able to manage and recover quickly.

Finall heard from my Aunt in Conn. She's fine, not even a power outage. Her sons, however, who are near the coast got hit hard and are without electricity since last night. Dunno when it will return. At least all are safe and unhurt.
Posted by: smitty145

Re: Hurricane Sandy - 10/30/12 07:02 PM

Lotus, Thank you for your concern.
We are fine and feel extremely fortunate. All we had were flickering lights all night and some really scary winds. There are many downed trees and crushed cars but nobody hurt in my neck of the woods. Family in New Jersey and Long Island went through a more severe night and suffered some damage but are okay. They do not have power as most other areas and probably won't for days to a week.

My heartfelt prayers go out to all those who lost loved ones and suffered far worse damages. This most definitely is the worst storm I have seen here in all my years. I haven't seen everything shut down like this since 9/11. No school for the kids again tomorrow.

The good news is......Trick or Treating is not cancelled, just be cautious. zombie

Re: Hurricane Sandy - 10/30/12 08:50 PM

Well, that was one WICKED storm! We lost our power for part of today, but we're back up and running for the moment.

I've never been in a hurricane with the winds that Sandy had: UNBELIEVABlE! They just blew and blew with a ferocity I had not heard before. Our neighbor next door had TWO of his huge trees just get uprooted and down they went on his car and carport.
The neighbor across the street had a tree fall on the back roof of his house and went right through to the rooms.
I was such a nervous wreck for all the hours of howling--there was no letup.

I am happy to be back to "normal" but feel sorry for all those that had it worse than we did. My gosh: Manhattan got flooded in many areas!! I never heard of that before, and I grew up there!

I pray for the others that were affected by this storm, since it left a trail of utter destruction in it's wake.

Re: Hurricane Sandy - 10/30/12 09:48 PM

Glad you're safe Mary! Yes, I am was born and raised in Manhattan and this was the worst. I cannot believe the devastation all around us. Fortunately, we dealt with the same as you..howling winds, downed trees, some without power.

THat is my familes area Drac. They got power the other day. If you want to PM me her address I can see if they will take a ride to check. It's not far at all.

Maggsie, that is not the case at all. Upper manhattan never lost power, and lower did. It is not a rich and poor divide at all. I am sorry your news media is twisting the facts, but the truth is some areas were hit harder and it takes more to get it back to normal. Everyone affected is losing patience but the widespread damage is not something that can be fixed immediately for all.
Posted by: smitty145

Re: Hurricane Sandy - 11/03/12 07:15 PM

I'm glad to see that others here are safe!

There was, and still is, power loss in Upper Manhattan. Subways were flooded in Northern Manhattan as well as other areas. I never lost power but many neighbors just a few blocks away still do not have power, cable, or phone service. The help is out there or getting there on Long Island, Rockaway (Queens), New Jersey. Staten Island and other areas.

Unfortunately, we are now expecting another storm on Wednesday.

We have to keep these people who are suffering such horrid damage and loss of life in our prayers.

Well, survived the storm, lost a large shed in the back yard to a larger tree. Now the problem we are facing is still power out to 400,000+ customers, and no gas. Not sure how I will be able to get to work.I live 35 miles from my job, 70 mile round trip. Don't have enough gas to get there and back. I also need to leave enough gas in the tank to actually get to a gas station when they do re-open. Never thought there would be a gas shortage.Things are totally messed up here on Long Island.Thank God I actually have my power back, and actually have heat.

That's not been shown on any UK TV news coverage, Maggsie.

Great to see you posting, LadyKestrel bravo

Darleen,

I'm so happy and relieved that you and yours are safe, that your property didn't flood, and that you finally got back all your power.

I hope that buy out comes for you before another storm.

God bless.
