Its been reported that the eye should pass over or near Atlantic City around 8 this evening moving northwest towards central PA where it will sit and leave a snowy fart before moving north to Canada.

Big wind in Northwest CT.

Don't imagine the power'll be on much longer, but we'll be staying safe.

The truck from Wisconsin with the generators for Lowes made it, and I made it to Lowes this morning at 7 for one of them.
Got it home, edumacated myself real quick on it, got it in place under the picnic table and tarps, started it up. Called neighbors for empty gas cans, and made three trips to gas station to fill them all up.

Now at least the headache of a flooded basement should be less.

I also bought a spare sump pump.

Its getting nasty out there. Stay safe folks.

High tide's in 13 minutes, here. Scarfire, how's it going? Thug and Jason? Anyone else on the water?

You know shit's getting real when chris christie is acting normal on TV.

Love y'all.


hi Sarah. sorry, we keep losing power and wifi and i'm just seeing this now. i posted to the AC thread and Facebook earlier, but we're doing good, thanks. the lagoon is really high and folks are losing their docks left and right, but i really don't think it will make it up the hill. the street side of the house is fine so far, no flooding, though one block over is flooded.'

we have everything we need if we're stranded without power or access out, for days.

we took in Lucy the puggle from one of the houses that's under water right now. she's adorable. snort snort!

we'll keep in touch as we are able and hope you're all being smart and safe :) :heart:

I just went outside an its like Christmas with the church stuff. The storm delivered a nice 5 gallon bucket, now we just need some rain and someone to turn the rainwater info wine.

Jordan, Sandy is crappy at bj's, she's blowing free branches and such that can pose a hazard to human cock.

I have been watching too many press conferences today, I guess I need a decoder.


1- Is "surge" what used to be referred to as a "tidal wave"?

2- Is "assets' (eg., "We will be moving our assets into place") what used to be referred to as equipment and personnel?

Thanks in advance...

1. No. A tsunami is what used to be referred to as a "tidal wave". Surge is a high tide that keeps coming in a little bit at a time and slowly inundates low-lying areas.

2. Yes.

I just took a ride around CRanston/Providence. Not too much wind, a gnarly gust every once in a while. No trees down I've come across. Flooding isn't too bad yet, but if we are getting lots more rain, I can see my street flooding.

be safe, and she may want to consider spending the night at the hospital if she can...i remember driving in hurricane floyd 10 years ago and the rain/wind was so crazy I couldn't see 5 feet in front of my car, and that was during the day!
