I hope our NYC and New England readers are preparing for the coming 'Snowpocalyptic Frankenstorm'!  If you haven't seen the movie The Day After Tomorrow, now's probably not the best time to freak yourself out with it.

Stay safe and stay warm folks!

Looks like no sleep from Monday thru Thursday for us NJ residents.  Grocery stores were fairly busy yesterday, hardware stores fairly busy today.  Got all the flashlight batteries charged and will fill all the H2O containers.  Just hoping (in this order) that the house says dry (or at least doesn't flood too bad), we don't lose power (at least for too long), and that the sewer, water, and gas keep working.

Is it a perception issue associated with getting older, or is it basically true: that life boils down to one long uninterrupted stream of interruptions?  And I don't even have kids! </crankyoldishman>

" is it basically true: that life boils down to one long uninterrupted stream of interruptions?" - Dewster

I think its true - perhaps we only realize this truth as we get older?

Hey - Just saw the news for the first time in several days - You folks in the storm path look like you might have a rough time of it - I wish you all the best!

There are some incredible pictures here of flooding in NYC, and the storm hasn't even come ashore yet.

Yeh, be sure to keep all of your valuables anchored well down: seems like the hurricane could be as bad as Hurricane Donna in 1960.

Chobbs, you could get creative and do a theremin live sound event to accompany the roof ascent :-)

Obviously joking there!

I feel very lucky as my neighborhood stayed high n dry through out the entire surge.  Didnt even loose power or internet.   A few miles in any direction- not so lucky.  the more 'aftermath' news I hear- the worse it sounds.  Most MTA (under river)  tunnels completely flooded!     Rockaway Beach (my favorite place!) was completely thrashed- 80+ home fire.
