Default Big Bully Alert!

Waiting here in New Jersey to get bullied around by Hurricane Sandy and "the perfect storm." The weather service says it's got a bull's-eye on us and is certain to blow in hard here. Local restaurants are offering "hurricane discounts," other than that, I'm not sure any good is going to come of this monster storm. Hope the power and internet connection stay on, if not, see you on the other side of it. All in its path stay safe!!

fill up the bathtub and some containers with water and pull out the camping gear - that's what we do here in CT...

Stay safe!
And take it fom a Hurricane Hugo survivor, when my power was off for 27 days and water was out for 26 days, I learned that you cannot have enough:

WATER. Drinking and utility !
WET WIPES. Trying to keep clean!
TRASH BAGS. Lots of trash not getting picked up!
Food and drinks that don't require refrigeration
Gassed up car!
Blue tarps. To help with damage control

Just been reading about it here in the UK - hope you are well stocked, and that the worst passes you by. Stay safe, and cuddle your poodles!

There is a lot of precautionary prep being taken here - schools closed, shelters open, evacuations ordered, mass transit closed. It seems a little overblown to us, but we'll let you know if our house blows over. (As a general rule, we live in a pretty prepared state for anything, and we could evacuate in 30 minutes or less with everything we actually *NEED*, if we had to... and we understand that we are the exception, not the rule, here...)
Everyone be safe - it really is not going to cost you anything to fill the bottles int he recycling bin and the bathtub with water, and to go ahead and put your passport, medications, DOG PAPERS, and Insurance information in a ziploc bag. (we also add our portable hard drives, but that's just us)...

Hope all goes well! We just had a tsnumi alert on the west coast and my sister said we had an earthquake but I guess I slept through it. Anyway, hope Sandy passes by relatively peacefully.

I heard about that tsunami warning! Mother Nature sure is cranky. Maybe she needs a Snickers bar?
