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.

I agree. I understand "prepare for the worst, hope for the best" and that they really really don't know what could happen (if I'm without power for a week again though, I'll cry), but the HYPE! Good gravy, it's not like we haven't had rain and wind before...

I'm fine with it staying like it is for now, I'd prefer DH be home before the worst of it hits anyhow.

Hi all! The winds have officially picked up here in Lancaster, PA! I've done some printing and journalling so I have some scrapbooking I can do over the next few days. They closed schools for today and tomorrow but I'm thinking it's likely to go longer as they said that once power goes it that it could be out for 5 days or more. (AH)

I have a data plan but expect to only use our phones for emergencies, to check in with family near Philly, and to check with school openings on Wednesday.

Today I took care of the essentials...baking cupcakes, cookies, and muffins.

We moved into this house just a little over a year ago and dealt with water issues then. We were advised that it was just a once in 30 year event and we shouldn't see water in the basement again any time soon. bah. Still dry as of now and hoping it stays that way! 5-7" of rain expected!!

To everyone else affected...stay safe and dry!! I'm so grateful so many schools and businesses have closed and so many are at home. I can't wait for this to be over.

Have to chuckle at the baking, we did some this morning too. Cooked 5 meals yesterday, so we are set for now. Gas grill was corroded, as we discovered yesterday as we cleaned it, or attempted to. Thank heavens for the sterno cans , and our neighbors lent us their Coleman stove, in the event we have no power at some point.

My sister, just north of Philly, said the winds are picking up quite briskly now. The roads in her county are closed as of 1 pm. The bigger highways in Connecticut closed at 1 pm also.

While it may not look so bad right now, after our tornado in June, 2012, and our hurricane/snow storm last October 30th, I take no chances. Not an alarmist, just cautious. Stay safe!


Boy, did i speak too soon. In less than an hour since I posted, the winds here are quite strong now.

She's definitely here too...a tree the neighbor's yard has cracked off a pretty big piece from the top and fallen into our yard. Didn't seem that bad yet, so if this is the beginning, it's going to be REALLY bad later. Noise scared the heck out of Morgan and I.

Did it sound like lightning hitting really close? That's what I remember it sounding like a couple of years ago when the tree hit our house. It was really scary. Please try and stay safe and know that it will all be over soon enough.

The wind ripped the flag from the flagpole here at work a while ago. That's how I knew she means business. Wind seems to have settled down a bit now again, but its raining pretty hard.

My boys are safe and sound at my mom's house with her and my dad and my sister to spoil them. Think they will be spending the night there tonight and hopefully coming home tomorrow when I get home from work. Hoping I can get home and get some baking done and some soup made to bring in here for the work guys tomorrow. I'm sure they will be out in the rain most of the day and some nice hot soup will be just what they need.....if my power at home lasts that long.

Eep! We lost power for a minute. Thank goodness it came right back on. DH is home I feel better that we're all home together. He's worried about the lattice on our deck though.

The tree was a really loud crack. I thought that's what it was, thankfully it's not that near the house.

That's a nice idea. I bet they would appreciate a hot soup after being outside all day. I made a really easy crock pot corn chowder yesterday. If you're interested, search double corn and potato chowder on BettyCrocker.com.

Wind has been steadily increasing here all day and the barometric pressure is falling equally steadily. It's supposed to only be a wind event here in the valley, but it's raining now. I cooked and baked yesterday because although we have a generator, it won't run the stove. I figgered better be prepared - I could be having guests if a power outage lasts very long I just hope cable doesn't go. What will we do withought the compute? I know. Spoiled!

Fingers crossed Linda..
I've been keeping Buffy updated from the weather channel... she doesn't have cable any more..
Our winds here have been a constant 25 mph.. I couldn't imagine all the additional the east coast/inland is dealing with currently especially with the wind gusts...

We still have power. We had an early dinner, dishes are picked up and Morgan has showered. I think I'll hop in too, just in case.

Wind is still pretty loud and it's quite rainy. So far so good.
