Really not liking what we are hearing for the Northeast...
"Some have compared it to the so-called Perfect Storm that struck off the coast of New England in 1991, but Cisco said that one didn't hit as populated an area and is not comparable to what the East Coast may be facing. Nor is it like last year's Halloween storm, which was merely an early snowstorm in the Northeast."
"The forecasts keep getting gloomier and more convincing with every day, several experts said.Cisco said the chance of the storm smacking the East jumped from 60 percent to 70 percent on Wednesday. Masters was somewhat skeptical on Tuesday, giving the storm scenario just a 40 percent likelihood, but on Wednesday he also upped that to 70 percent. The remaining computer models that previously hadn't shown the merger and mega-storm formation now predict a similar scenario."

This is definitely one of those storms that we'll be taking seriously, and preparing for early. The last thing I want to be doing is running around last minute trying to get the basics.
So how will we be preparing? Here's what the rest of my week will be looking like:
♦ Making sure ALL the laundry has been washed and dried.
♦ Filling up our gas tanks in both vehicles, as well as getting the gas containers filled for the generator.
♦ Heading to the ATM to withdraw some cash, because if we lose power, the debit machines in the stores will not be working.
♦ Making sure we have enough batteries, candles, and water.
♦ Picking up any items in the yard, fastening down the grill, and outdoor furniture.
♦ and yes, heading to the grocery store to pick up some snacks and bread. ( After all, I am a true New Englander!)
So it looks like my weekend will be rather busy!
