  •  a good week for climate change (13+ / 0-)

    good luck to all dealing with the storm.

    Here 10 mi N of NYC - early yesterday I'd convinced myself it would be too far South to be a big deal - now the forecasts have moved it up closer to us.

    home flood prep now underway! & the cash/gasoline/water/food thing. I wish i had a more powerful inverter to run the pump we have. The neighbor does, so if nec. will rely on him, I guess. Our backyard turns into a river if it rains really hard. we have gotten smart (after a couple of multiple-feet of water in the basement events) and build a sandbag barricade.

    funny how life is going.

    thanks for the diary.

      I hope it goes through as quickly as possible.

      Better yet, I hope Sandy is a very contrary storm and changes her mind and goes out to sea.

      We don't tend to have any flooding issues but sometimes the sump pump does run in extreme situations.  

      The generators are the hot item at the hardware stores.

        this morning's prediction on has it going from the just of the Jersey coast to around Harrisburg, PA in 24 hrs.

        now they've moved it a little further south - more like Atlantic City on the latest version.

        one thing on my list is to build a permanent wall in place of the sandbags, which, though functional, are aging:
