    I have him locked in a spare room that is more protected from trees that might fall, and despite his favorite food and a nice fleecey blanket for sleeping, he's not happy. Luckily the horrid winds are drowning out his protests.

    My daughter and her family are hunkered down in Cherry Hill, NJ which is just east of Philly. I think the storm veered further south than originally anticipated, but then this makes her in that deadly Northeast quadrant. I just talked to her and they still had power. My grandson who's 4 had to give me a breathless account of everything storm-related he had seen on TV. He didn't seem to be scared....just intrigued at big twucks lying on their sides and twaffic lites hanging sideways. I am not too worried, but yeah-I am a little. Lots of trees around them. One of them in the backyard had 3 trunks and one trunk has already broken off but it fell away from the house. She said there were 40 mph sustained winds with 70 mph bursts right now-the worst is yet to come.

    Southpaw, are you in danger of flooding, or is it mainly the wind?

    Flooding is my bigger issue, but who knows what the wind can possibly bring.

    at 9pm Pierce will be talking about it.. apparently Donald Trump tried to get something done.. but nothing can be done - just people to be prepared when it fully collapses I guess?? I would hate to be in that area with all that glass around and that huge crane..
    Thanks to PI .. I discovered I'm actually a Nontheist

    A photo of a shark swimming in the streets of Brigantine, NJ. That's not something you see every day.

    There have been SO MANY faked photos today that I can't take any of these seriously any more. That looks fake to me but my pessimism may be getting the best of me, lol

    i'm actually really high up. but if i needed to evacuate, 5 pm was not the time to tell me.
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Still here . Lost cable for a few minutes, but it's back. I have candles lit just in case. I can't imagine I'm going to have power forever.

    Watching "Ask the Governor" and he's being pretty energetic. He said he'll probably need to take a day long nap in a week or so.
