Frankenstorm Sandy headed our way!

So as if things aren't crazy enough... we've got a storm/hurricane of "historic precedents" headed our way.

I think we're as prepared as we're going to be. Backyard items tied down/put away. Bottled water. Probably 3-4 days of non-perishables... or at least until food choices start to get weird. Basement prepared for the leakage we have when it rains hard. Lots of flashlights & batteries. Will fill the bathtub tonight for washing/misc use water.

Other than that... we'll just have to see what happens :/

Once the worry of initial storm is over... then it'll be handling the power outage. Haven't heard good things about this area in getting power turned back on... I've heard stuff like a week to 11 days... YIKES.

Here goes nothing!

Oh my gosh, sounds like your as ready as you can be, hope you aren't too effected by Sandy.

how'd you fare with the storm? luckily we didn't lose power or get any damage, tho the stop sign on our corner came loose, and we put it in the garage so it wasn't flying debris. i could just see it taking out my car window or something.
