Just taking a moment to wish those of you along the Mid-Atlantic - Northeast Coast of the US good luck braving the storm over the next few days.  For that matter, it looks like everyone inland to Michigan and beyond may be severely effected.  Snow in Virgina, Kentucky, Tennessee.  This thing is really a monster!

To any and all in her path, good luck, stay safe, and keep us posted.

Yes, this will be a fun one. But gotta stay safe. It seems like most of the necessary precautions are being taken by municipalities in our area, so thats good. But we'll see about when/after the storm hits.

It's the lack of power that will ....not be fun.  I have already been told by my employer on 5th Ave NY, NY not to come in until Wednesday!

Ahh you work on 5th ave? Ever go to the Five Guys near rockefeller center?
Usually in the city we dont have to deal with the power outages, because the lines are underground. But if they get flooded, thatll be a different story.

The "Five Guys" franchise isn't doing as well as before so they are now called "Two Guys and half a Burger." ;)
They had to make some cuts.  lol

Sandy? It sucked....I'm back after 6 days without any power or any services at all at least for now. I have evacuated to Connecticut.   I lost power, heat, water, food, part of my roof and part of my sanity.

Others lost their entire lives, homes, etc, etc,

Say a prayer for them....please.

Glad to know you are ok.
I figured you had no power therefore unable to communicate your status.
The KWA community was definitely concerned about you.
Stay safe during the recovery just as you did during the weather event.
Definitely wil say a prayer for everyone.
