Quake was in North Jersey. I'm still waiting for Dennis Quaid to go by the house with a sled. This has totally been a big budget horror movie in my state!
Parts of Brick are being evacuated ahead of the Nor'Easter coming in.
If you would PM your address, I also can forward it some people and see if I can get some information for you.
I was able to get gas in Newburgh, NY last night, after class. I saw the stations there were all open, with no lines, so I stopped. They only had high octane, so I gave my car a treat.
Still no ability to go in to work this morning - but the utility company is working in the building now, so we're hopeful for this afternoon.
Use Yah Blinkah!
Yay for gas.
My daughter's work made it back to Weehawken today, well one of their buildings is trashed, but they fit everyone else in the other building/s.
Since she was with us in PA until Sunday, she did not mail her out of state voting ballot until today. My friend who works at the polls gave me the phone number of our local county voting people, they said it had to be received by 8pm tonight, buggers.
I missed the noon news, what is happening with this second storm, does PA need to worry?

Last I heard on the radio, it may stay farther out to sea than first expected. I hope so.
Nor'easter to weaken, per this Yahoo article. Still very windy for the coast through not as bad as originally feared, thank goodness!
I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.
Yes, they are, now, saying it will not come as close as they first thought. And it doesn't seem to be packing as much punch as they initially thought. However, with the weakened condition of the trees and telephone poles, it won't take as much. The shore area will bear the brunt of it, which is not good. They are also very concerned with flying debris. The people restoring the shore towns are now focused on trying to build some semblance of a barrier back up. That is slowing down everything, but has to be attempted.
There are a decent number of trees half-uprooted in my neighborhood. Won't take much to push them over. Hopefully, not onto my house this time.
Still no work, but they got the power on at around 4pm today, so we're back at work tomorrow.
Use Yah Blinkah!
From the sound of things, it sounds like the major concern is the cold temps and snow that will/could be coming w/this new system.
Hope it doesn't end up being as bad as it could possibly be. Stay safe everyone!!
I missed the local news at both 12pm and 6pm, but I think they are forecasting 3-4 inches of wet snow for Philly. UGH!
And those poor people in NJ, NY so do not need this. Some of them are already freezing just from the low temperatures, I cannot imagine snow.
Thinking of all those who are still trying to recover from Sandy and are now braced for the arrival of Athena (the nor'easter). Stay safe everyone!
Can't skate but love to watch
This nor'easter is making me nervous. If we lose power again, it will be even colder. And, for those who still do not have power, it will make it harder to get them up and running. This is just a mess on top of a disaster.
Is there any news on temporary housing for those who lost everything or are in areas close to the shore (no power and another storm moving in?)
They are evacuating some towns. As far as power, we just don't know. Another big concern is that the trees that went down are still here. Cut up and piled in the streets. In some places barely enough room for one car to get through. If we get (in the north western parts of NJ) the 6" + of snow they are predicting - the plows won't get through. If the snow can't be removed and we lose power again, this will be a nightmare!
Just an FYI, Governor Christie only got his power back on Monday night. No favorites here!
Sending support to all of you in the path of the nor'easter.
And the alphabet starts again. Hmpf. Athena.
