    Thank you! We're in Maine, as well. I think we're stocked up on everything we need should we lose power for a couple of days. Hope you all make it through unscathed! :)

    Thanks! I live a few miles from the Delaware River and ready for Irene. My BF who is a truck driver drove up the DE coast last night and said there was blinking signs on the highway about possible evacuations & staying safe. He said the traffic going North was bad. Munchie food, water & sewing machine ready to roll out!

    Thanks for the prayers. I'm in North Carolina so we're not looking forward to it coming our way.

    Absolutely - everyone take care of yourselves. Maybe I've been living in D.C. too long. First and earthquake and now a hurricane. I'm thinking even God is ticked off at the politicians....

    we are going to button down here in NW Jersey, expecting winds and rain and no electric. My Aunt is at the shore, its not going to be good there, she needs a new roof, i am worried the storm will tear it off.

    Have only ever had to deal with cyclones. Your weather is very very frightening to look at and the damage it does is unbelievable.
    May everyone in the danger areas come through safely.

    "A couple of days",...........you must not be in a rural area. I live in a wooded area with a zillion trees and we lose power all the time ,in a hurricane will be out for weeks til CMP gets to our area. I am so not looking forward to this.

    All my Maine fellow quilters stay safe, maybe we can get some quilting done, I'M preping handwork now.

    I live in the interior of NH and although it is reported that we too will get "hammered", I know it will be nothing like the coast - especially those of us in the mid Atlantic states. All of you on the coast - stay dry and safe.

    Amen! Thank you all for thinking of us. Our main problem is electric and the Potomac flooding. We may be off the board for awhile. We should start getting hammered tomorrow late afternoon.

    Hope your sewing machine runs on batteries!! Might be a weekend to practice quilting by hand. :wink:

    I'm in coastal Rhode Island. Have stocked up on supplies. If you hadn't gotten batteries by last night you are going to have a hard time finding them. This one feels different. Keeping television off - we will check weather tonight and again tomorrow but the hype and drama just make me crazy. This is the first storm of it's type for my boys - ages 9 and 10. They have been awesome! Want to know how to be prepared so one gathered all flashlights to a central location and the other one inventoried batteries and made me a list so we knew what we have and what we needed. Today we'll secure everything from the yard and store it in the shed.

    Then we're gonna hunker down and play board games!

    Be safe and smart!

    Yes, we're in Auburn, so I wouldn't think it would be out for us for too long. Lived in a more rural area during the ice storm, though- it was out for quite a while, then! That was quite an adventure, to say the least... Hoping that we're all prepared for the worst, but that it dies down quickly and is not nearly as bad as predicted. And feel free to come stay with us if your power goes out indefinitely! ;)

    Probably a good move! I was reflecting this morning how the media just makes everyone crazy with the sort of coverage they do. I think it is their frenzy to fill the airways 24/7 with something - ANYTHING - to make people watch.

    Perhaps this would be a good time to take up hand quilting. Seriously, though, prayers for safety for you all.

    Totally agree. The media seems to be good a making mountains out of mole hills. Then again, it never hurts to be prepared and safe.

    We're in Central NJ - between ocean and Del. River. Hopefully it won't be too bad. They have upgraded us from hurricane 'watch' to 'warning' now. DH and I are both involved with local fire company so will prbably both be busy from Sat. night on with feeding and sheltering folks as well as making sure our own homes are safe. DH checked generator last night. As long as we can plug the sump pump in I'm a happy camper. Otherwise the table saw will be floating across the basement. Last time we had a major storm -not hurricane- the dogs were swimming in the back yard in water up to my thighs. We have a creek behind us that normally is only ankle deep but with the rain that we've had over the last couple of weeks it will only be a matter of a couple of hours before that rises as well. We have a commercial property as well, adjacent to our home, that, again, with just a heavy storm the water runs in the back doors of the buildings and out the front. Hurricane Floyd was more than a challenge a few years ago. And this is predicted to be worse. Here's hoping we keep our heads above water.

    Put your sewing machine high on a shelf in case of flooding. Or take it with you if you are evacuating. So sorry for you guys. God bless.
