Storm Watch: Hurricane Sandy


Hurricane Sandy is getting ready to hit land the U.S. How are things looking for your area? I'm right in the path for the storm as of this afternoon and know other DISers are as well. How are you managing?

Looks like its over Castaway Cay right now. Hope the damage to the island is minimal. Some of us are cruising in just over a month.

I was thinking about that before. Hopefully things go well there and everyone is safe.

looks like Northern VA is along the SAME dotted line as the one going right through your town. Just follow that line to the left. Oy vey!! I do not have storm shutters like I do on my Florida house...which so far looks safe. During hurricane Isabelle about 10 years ago, we lost 22 trees and we're pretty inland considering. I am 33 miles west of the white house for perspective. I really am not sure what I can do to prepare.

I can't tie down big trees..... I'm worried about the river birch in front of my porch. Nearly lost that thing in snowmaggeddan. A windy day last week took off another branch.

Well, at least I have a case of Charmin!!

True- last year it snowed on 10/29 (I remember because that's my birthday and it was the first time it ever snowed on my birthday!).
So we're gonna mix it up a bit this year and get a hurricane!! Yikes!

Batten down the hatches everyone! And make sure you know where your flashlights and candles are!

Bought a non-electric can opener and 6 gallons of water! Making extra ice and making sure all of my ice packs are in the freezers in case we need them. Making some goodies to have as snacks and we have lots of canned soups and such.

We had a tree fall on our house about 4 years ago during the remnants of Hurricane Hannah! Put two holes in the roof! I woke up screaming! Our DDs slept right through it! Had to wake them when the firemen and building inspector came in the house! It happened at 2 in the morning so it scared the *&*&*& out of us! Never sleep when it's windy because of that! Good thing my liquor cabinet is stocked!

Stay safe everyone! Gotta make sure all the electronics are fully charged by Sunday night!
