    Well, if the forecast is in the ballpark and if the recorded phone call fro our electric co. is any indication we'll be firing up the generator for the 2nd time this year. Last time it was 2+ days, we are told this time it will be more than that. Hope they are wrong!

    Silver lining to all this will be the free firewood I should be able to get. I would rather not lose electric!!

    We were without power for 3 weeks after Hurricane Ike but the worst is being without water or sewage for longer...but we didn't have to contend with the cold...it was just hot, muggy, and dirty...taking daily whores baths with bottles of water

    What really blows is that my generator is unregulated AC power and unsafe to use for powering any "good" electronics, like my PCs, Panny plasma or audio set up. Oh well, cable will probably be out too anyway. Be sure to put on the ear protection before firing up your chainsaw, I know I damn sure will !

    My new pre-amp is supposed to ship Monday/Tuesday from New York... Hope it survives any floods along the way.

    Now now you're just jealous cuz you don't have a foot of snow on the ground and minus twenty windchill and having to shovel the dam driveway three times since yesterday cuz of the drifting snow. You folks on the east coast make sure everything is ready cuz this could get bad best of luck.

    Now they're predicting an 11' surge from this thing... my GPS says I am 16' above sea level, but this storm is supposedly arriving at the worst possible time, with a full moon high tide happening about 11pm tonight. The house itself should be safe, but I have a feeling my garage and finished basement (stupid driveway slopes down under the house) may become the indoor pool I never wanted.

    Well, I used to like living on Long Island, just hope I can say that in 48 hours.

    Stay as safe as you can if you live in the path of this thing.
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    Right on D.C. you say ??

    Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of.....well, you know what I mean.

    The rest of you guys be safe. I hear John is offering refuge on the west coast for all you east coast Polkies. Just bring beer, pizza, and some Maryland crabcakes. Heck, I may take him up on that and I don't live on the east coast. Shhhh......

    These were taken approx. 1330 hrs. 10/29/12 on Main St. in Riverhead.
    The 3 buildings shown are of the East End Arts Council, a client of mine since 1999. I have a feeling after tonight that I may be cleaning UP there for quite awhile.
    As near as I can tell, the water level behind those buildings is about 6' above normal high tide, so according to the experts we can expect another 6-8' above where it is now. Sheesh!

    Just got home from work a little while ago. Yeah, we had to go in until they made us leave around 2pm.

    Wind gusts are picking up now, much stronger than when I went to work around 9am. The only thing that would make life suck is a power outage. Then it's hand draining the sump pump when the UPS battery backup gets used up.

    Gonna be a LONG 24-36 hours!

    I call BS on the Bounty, sounds like an insurance scuttle to me. I really hope that I'm wrong about that.

    Just a little tip for those of you weathering the storm. It is not pleasing to eat raw eggs but if you hard boil them they are quite tasty. I just boiled up 2 dozen eggs in the event we lose power.

    Power was out for three hours before they fixed it. Our office closed at 4 PM. Looks like the worst is yet to come!

    Power went out at 3:15. Fortunately, 1) I have a generator, and 2) Cable and Internet still works. Nothing else bad has happened. Hope you all are OK.

    Wind is really picking up here in Lower Bucks county Pa. We are just north of Philadelphia but right over the bridge from Trenton and burlington NJ. Rain seems to have slowed down for now. How is it in NJ guys?

    Winds are picking up big time & yet the rain has slowed down. I don't expect that scenerio to remain for much longer. We're only 60miles from Atlantic City are it looks like we're sittimg smack in Sandy's path once she hits land. It ain't looking good bro.
