We've done everything we can to get ready for the storm. Much better prepared than during last years freak snowstorm when we lost power for 5 days. I'm crossing my fingers and toes that we keep power but you never know. Lots of trees around-very pretty but not power line friendly. The worst is that the rain is just going to sit on top of us for 3 days or so. I have friends very near where the storm will make landfall. Just tried to contact them to see if they have mandatory evacuation yet.
