For all of us who will be/have been affected by Hurricane Sandy

Praying that all of us remain safe throughout the next few days. I do not have a data plan on my cellphone, so if the power goes, I will be out of the loop ... except to call family and friends.

If you can keep in touch, do, so that we know you are safe. Hugs to everyone in the path!! Caroline


PS - they have cancelled every school sytem in western Mass now, colleges too!

DH called to tell me around three that he had gotten the call for cancellation. A very loud cheer went up from the 4 girls with me at the corn maze

Stay safe all!!

Stay safe to all in Ma and in the path. My families on the coast and they will have their road go under for sure. Quincy closed too, as did boston.

We've heard nothing but almost all of the villagers have mad plans to evac if needed. But last check was 2-4" of rain so hopefully that's all we get.

No data plan here either but I'll text jen if there are issues.

Stay safe all

We are closed Monday and Tuesday. I'm at work now and I am in a unit without windows so I don't know what is going on outside. I just want to get home in the morning.
Be safe everyone.

My prayers are with all of you going through this. I hope it ends up being much less than they are expecting so it will be easier to recover.

It's only rain right now (inland Massachusetts - we're about an hour from the beach, but watching on the news, there is lots and lots of wind and water at the coast). The governor strongly recommended all schools close, and private business as well, but DH's office did not close...He's there for now, I hope they send them home early.

Keeping my fingers crossed for no power outage. If we get as much rain as they think and we lose power, our sump pump will not work and my basement will flood...Ick.

Stay safe all!

Stay safe girls..

Christy, I don't blame you for pulling the boys early.. seems they would have been proactive about this storm considering just over a year ago.. ERR!!

Been thinking about my Eastern Dis friends. Hope everyone is safe and that the damage is much better than expected.

Wind seems to be picking up. I've turned off the TV because I can't stand much more of the same newscast. I think 24 hour coverage is a bit much at this point.

It was windy here a little while ago, but now seems to have died down. Some drizzling rain, but not much else. I keep looking out the window thinking "is this it?", but I know this isn't the worst of it. I wish it would just hurry up and do what its going to do and let us get back to our regular schedule. The gas station up the block here is out of gas. Seriously? Is it going to get that bad here? This whole place looks like a ghost town, and there's nothing really happening.....yet.
