I’m on the south shore of LI, in what is now a mandatory evacuation zone. I live with my Future In-Laws and they are laughing it off saying we don’t need to leave because they didn’t leave last year and they lost power but everything was fine. I’ve tried to say that it’s predicted to be completely different, but no one wants to listen to me. Fiance and I packed go bags for us and our pup in case we need to leave (and have a place to go if need be). I’m just praying it doesn’t come to that, and that our basement apartment doesn’t get any/too much damage :/

Stay safe everyone!

I am getting a little nervous. DH is not at all. We have no bottled water so I filled up our Brita and three other pitchers. We have a ton of chips, bread, and we just made brownies so hopefully we have enough there. We have one flashlight but more candles and matches then we’ll know what to do with.  I have to work on Wednesday so I figure I can grab things then if we lose power.

Keeping you all in my thoughts, hopefully this isn’t as bad as they are predicting.

Well, my kids birthday party was a bust- we had enough food, pizza, snacks and birthday cake for 20+ but only 1 kid and parent plus two friends of mine showed up, soooo… we have plenty of chips, popcorn, birthday cake, leftover pizza, as well as a bunch of canned food (including spinach! YUM!) and a shit ton of juice boxes and water bottles. So hopefully we’re set for that. 

I’m just worried about internet access and electricity for doing my homework 🙁

My family and I just got evacuated from NYC – my sister lives in a flood danger area and my parents and I happend to be visiting last week and this week. Thankfully we managed to catch one of the last trains out of Manhattan (despite public transport shut downs) and are now with a family friend about an hour upstate. Hoping for the best but not looking forward to tomorrow… Stay safe bees, I’m keeping my fingers crossed we’ll all be getting through this unharmed!

I’m annoyed…my parent’s are in a mandatory evacuation zone and are acting like they could care less….I’m in NYC but we’ll be fine…and just because it’s mildly appropriate given this is “weddingbee” I figured I’d take a photo of Kleinfeld’s all boarded up as I passed by today 🙂

I really hope the people who’re in evac zones get out.  No one knows how bad it’ll be!  Be safe people.  Be safe!

“If you don’t evacuate you’re not just putting your own life in danger, you are also endangering lives of our first responders who would have to rescue you,”  Mayor Michael Bloomberg said.
