    Hurricane Sandy

    Good luck and be safe to all of the northeaster US friends on this forum. Have been through many a hurricane here in Louisiana and they are to be taken seriously. Prepare and be ready for it. Hope everyone has little damage and no injuries or deaths. Go to higher ground and hunker down.

    I am worried, as when it rains hard for more than two days, I have water in the basement.....and it takes several days to get it taken care of. I have to move all the furniture, pull up the rugs and make sure the fabric is all safe!
    Deb Watkins - I woke up today on the right side of dirt. It is a good day.

    I am so looking forward to the storm.. I know it sounds crazy.. Even though I am on an island out of NYC near the ocean, I find a storm very invigorating... I have a couple of things to pick up.. I have enough stuff to do in the house, and read.. .. I just hope we don't lose the power.. but then I have two laptops, and one Kindle fire, and they are all charged up. I will lose internet, but I can catch up on other things.. I guess I am good to go!!!
    For those that are in any danger, I will keep you in my prayers that things work out..

    Perhaps at a better time you can look into a putting a pump in the basement. My folks had to do that.

    Keep your head in, don't be a "looky-lou!" Prayers of safety to you all.

    We are on the West Coast of Fl. and the wind today has been 30-40 miles per hr it sounded awful but I know the East Coast is doing much worse they have rain but the info on the storm going N looks awful. I hope your all safe been thru many hurricanes and hopefully with a little luck it won't be as bad as they say it's just you have to be prepared for anything to happen and then get out of harms way. These storms are so unpredictable you have to be careful and just listen to the weather reports. Good luck everyone I'll say some prayers for you all. Take care and just do what they tell you even if it comes to past for nothing. Sue

    I purchased additional batteries and canned items today. Hope we don't lose power as the basement could flood. Ole Mother Nature is having fun this fall season. Prayers that this storm fizzles out fast.

    My niece and her hubby are on a cruise ship and can't get back into the Cape Canaveral Port because of this storm. I know that Janelle(niece) must be chewing her nails!! Thoughts and prayers to all who are in the path of Sandy.

    Prayers to all out there in the path of this storm. We are going to get some of it's wrath here in Canada in the next couple of days but nothing like what you all in the States are going to get. Our East Coast: PEI, Newfoundland etc. will probably get the worst of it in Canada. May God keep everyone safe.

    Left Ontario Wed -not sure what weather we would find in south west Fl - pleasant but breezy. Arrived Fri afternoon TV's didn't work and no phone either so very concerned but not due to storm. Repairman coming Mon afternoon.
    Naturally, we were low in min on the cell phone but bought more to call Centurylink. At least it's sunny and warm to go in the pool and exercise my knee. Hope there is not a lot of damage as now the storm is going towards my
    northern home.

    Where in the N.E. lower peninsula of Michigan do you live. I am in the S.E. part of Michigan and just looked at the weather and we are expecting rain but no mention of snow. My two grandsons would love it if we got some snow, we didn't get much of anything last year and they were so disappointed.
    Happy Quilting

    Since I posted that they have also taken the snow out of the forecast I am on the East shore of Lake Huron about 50 miles south of the Mackinaw Bridge

    I am worried sick because my son and girlfriend are leaving Tuesday night (upstate NY) and driving to Florida. I can only hope that they will be o.k. When do we stop worrying?

    Prayers for all of you in the storm's path. Down here in New Orleans we're used to such storms but it's unusual for you guys. In my preparation for a hurricane I make sure everything's charged, have some real books on hand and lots and lots of applique or hand piecing I can do while the power's out. Everyone keep safe.

    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.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Our basement is only for furnace hot water heater.Have sump pump but if electric is out pump won't work. Just had to invest in a new fuel oil tank. Not looking forward to more expense. Have been on net and phone trying to find generator.NOT! Stores sold out. Seems like the whole state is out. WISHING EVERYONE SAFE.
