Yeah, I also saw a map of the major impact areas it's f-in huge! Parts of Maine are included on the north end and down to northeast North Carolina in the south. So basically we're all F'd in the A. I'm glad I bought this flail at the Ren Fair today so I can fight off the looters. Can you imagine being a looter and then get confronted by a crazy a**hole with a flail?

I also think I'm going to head to the beach tomorrow and snap some pics of the ocean as she prepares kick our collective asses. Long Island Sound to be more precise.

Good luck to all affected by this storm. Hopefully the flooding and power outages are minimal.

I am tuning up my generator at the moment. Got everything that can be blown away moved inside. I loaded up on beer and booze. Probably should have bought some food. Oh well.

I was watching the weather channel and one of the predicted storm routes has the eye passing over my house in northwest nj. Great.

Jcp&l is already talking about certain areas in jersey being without power for 10+ days. I hope its not me.

I'll do my best to take pictures at work in Manhattan, should be interesting. I work right on the East River which flows like a mad man normally.

I'm actually a little nervous about this one. I responded to Katrina in '05 and never imagined we might be in the same situation one day.

I'll try to update as much as I can. I'll be working through the worst of it starting Monday evening until who knows when depending how bad it gets.

Yeah, the more I keep reading the scarier it gets. And if I'm scared for Connecticut, I can't imagine how bad it's going to be closer to the point of impact. I'm seriously keeping everyone who might get a hard hit from this storm in my prayers. Get some home brew (or any brew for that matter) cold before the power goes out.

If anyone is familiar with Fells Point in Baltimore you can appreciate the entire area is sand bagged.

You sir, are about to get it hard. Rough and hard.

I live off Bel Aire Rd, just inside the beltway. Keep the water down there with you.
