We’ve been prepping all weekend too. Our main generator crapped out (how perfect!) so we had to downgrade to a lower powered one, and we bought another spare. I know we’ll be fine, even if we’re without power for a couple weeks but I’m just so worried about having more trees come down. Irene & the big october snowstorm last year brought down so many trees.. we still haven’t finished cleaning up. Hoping everyone stays safe!

@trueblue14:  I just posted this picture of The Shack in LBI.  Looks like Sandy will do it in for good.  What a sad day.  A lot of our towns are flooding already and a lot of mandatory evacuations.

Thinking of all you Bees who live near the shore!  My in-laws all live in South/Southeast NJ and they have already dealt with their share of flooding and power outages in the last year.  We aren’t sure how bad it’s going to hit here in MD but luckily, we tend not to lose power for very long in my neighborhood.  Hope everyone stays safe and dry!

Thinking of all you bees on the East Coast, I know many of you will lose power at some point but please update when you can just to let us know you’re okay!

Good luck! We are securing the best we can in DC. Our schools are closed, hopefully the government will shut down soon, and we are all ready to buckle down and ride it out. Hopefully NYC and NJ will have minimal distruction!

We’re only expected to get an increased rainfall in Ottawa but that could change.  To all the Bees living in Sandy’s path, good luck and stay safe 🙂

Here in Arlington, Va they have been cutting down weak trees all weekend. Everyone is preparing (the store shelves are empty). We are pretty well stocked and ready to ride it through. As a DC school teacher I already know I will be safe at home. Just waiting to see if the federal government will close so Fiance can stay safe at home with me.

We just brought our grill and deck chairs into the garage.  Stay safe everyone!  Best wishes.

Stay safe, everyone.  We are supposed to get a direct hit (we are in NJ’s northernmost Shore county) – we already brought everything inside and stocked up on whatever we think we need.  Meanwhile, my office hasn’t even been closed yet and it is ten minutes from the beach and right across the street from a river.  Don’t know what they are waiting for…

happy that my schedule already has me off tll wednesday, though a hospital isnt the worst place to be in a hurricane.  i haven’t really done anything to prepare; we just brought our table and chairs in from the balcony and i filled up a gallon jug of water.  not too worried, honestly; not sure if i should be or not lol

I’ve been raking all the leaves out of the way of storm drains. Those little shits clog up infrastructure, and makes it hard for water to drain. If you guys haven’t done that yet, it may save you a flood later.

We secured everything in the yard with bungee cords and took important things out of the garage and shed and moved them to our storage facility. Fiance and I plan on moving our cars to a different part of the neighborhood – higher ground/less trees/not near the water. We’re across the street from the lagoon. The worst I’ve seen is the water come halfway up the driveway. Hoping it’s not worse than that! Stay safe everyone!!!
