    I worked through the last hurricane that hit here. The only positive thing I can think about that experience with the power off everywhere, at least it was cool outside.

    Be safe, brother. These things tend to make people a little nuts. Like I'm tellin you anything you didn't know.
     
  5. Yup here we go again. I'm glad I'm not a cop during things like these. If you want a laugh I have a photo from Irene. Be safe out there ya'll.

  6. Happens every time that area floods, never fails. People will drive right around the barriers to drive into that water
     
  7. I'm off Sunday and Monday and had originally planned on getting my garden ready for Winter. Now not sure what plan "B" is going to be!

    My dad retired from the power company in May. I bet he's looking forward to not having to work 14 hour days for 7 days post storm.

    Y'all take good care up there to the east and north! I'll pray for y'all.

    Ike, Rita, Katrina, and Allison were the memorable storms down here, since I started wearing the badge, so I appreciate what is about to happen with Sandy, though I have never seen a bad snowstorm, so can only speculate about that part.

    I got picked to work at Homestead AFB during a hurricane ciirca 1979. The entire base was evacuated except for "non-essential" personnel, like me. All air-worthy planes were flown out, all buildings were sandbagged, all traffic sign removed, all two wheeled transportation stored in base gym, every and occupied barracks had a medic. The base was expected to bring a storm surge of 10' of water. As I was on the second floor of the barracks, I made cash, storing stereos and televisions for folks on the first floor.
    All the preparation ended up as a drill because the hurricane turned North. We were throwing a frisbee during the worst part.

    I evacuated from the Florida Keys, circa 1981, due to a hurricane. I went to stay with friends in Homestead. Homestead had massive flooding.

    I'm the watch commander starting at 1600 tomorrow till 0600. If I can get home; great. If not, I'll sleep in my office till 1600 Tuesday and do it again.

    I'm more concerned for my wife and two boys who, despite being in a stout little brick house, will be scared ****less.

    Don't be mad, but I'm hoping it hits up near you guys and not down here. Doesn't look like it's working:

    My trailer is in Upper, and I'm right across the river from Philly to the southeast.

    So, yeah. [​IMG]

    Here is part of the NWS public statement, as quoted:


    SOME IMPORTANT NOTES…

    1. IF YOU ARE BEING ASKED TO EVACUATE A COASTAL LOCATION BY STATE AND LOCAL OFFICIALS, PLEASE DO SO.

    2. IF YOU ARE RELUCTANT TO EVACUATE, AND YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO RODE OUT THE ’62 STORM ON THE BARRIER ISLANDS, ASK THEM IF THEY COULD DO IT AGAIN.

    3. IF YOU ARE RELUCTANT, THINK ABOUT YOUR LOVED ONES, THINK ABOUT THE EMERGENCY RESPONDERS WHO WILL BE UNABLE TO REACH YOU WHEN YOU MAKE THE PANICKED PHONE CALL TO BE RESCUED, THINK ABOUT THE RESCUE/RECOVERY TEAMS WHO WILL RESCUE YOU IF YOU ARE INJURED OR RECOVER YOUR REMAINS IF YOU DO NOT SURVIVE.

    Number one and two are logical. Number three is for the rest of the public too smart to listen to logical warnings.

    It makes me glad my family and I did not make it to the northeast to live there for a while.

    Regardless of that, I have y'all and my wife's side of the family in prayer. This is apparently set to be a doozy of a storm.

    It's getting breezy and the light rain comes and goes.

    This is going to suck.

    Hang in there. No one can be rescued or helped if you don't take care of yourself first.

    Just be careful, I think you'll do alright. Same for the family.

    UpState NY up where some of my in-laws live they are expecting a heck of a lot of flooding, from what we heard from them today. I don't know how Hackensack will do, but I do have in-laws there as well. They are all in our prayers.

    I'm just across the river from Philly; I can hear the fireworks after Eagles and Phillies games.

    You know...really close to the track this ***** is going to take!

    That's why I looked up Philly. I seem to remember that for some reason.
