    We cannot wait until its over to tease you as you might get blown away LOL.

    Seriously though, fill your bathtub with water just in case for flushing and some clean containers with potable water just in case this isn't your first rodeo. You are probably going to have boil water warnings at the very least for awhile if you are near the intense parts. If you are on the coast, you probably should head inland a mile or so or if you are near a river or stream head uphill.

    It's all much ado about nothing. Barely a CAT 1 storm. It's a media event.

    Helicopter sent to rescue 17 people who abandoned HMS Bounty off N.C. coast - U.S. News

    Updated at 9:15 a.m. ET: A helicopter rescue operation was under way Monday for 17 people who abandoned the HMS Bounty as the ship was sinking off the coast of North Carolina, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

    "Our helicopter has arrived on scene and the hoisting operation is under way," according to one Coast Guard official.


    CNN says 14 rescued and 2 missing as of 9:30a.m.

    (psst.....anything that affects DC or NYC is the storm of the century that they bravely survived, but don't tell anybody)

    Given the LONG advance notice, sounds like insurance fraud to me. For how old it is, the wood is likely well rotted, no one wants huge old wood boats, and if it sinks they can claim some great historic value, when it has very little value.

    We're under driving ban as it's officially now a state of emergency.

    I'm not in a flood plane, nor am I in a trailer. Still have power. Plenty to drink. Gas grill in garage with extra propane for cooking if needed.

    I think the fine for being caught out driving is $115 dollars or something like that.

    We've still got electricity and internet (obviously).

    The worst is still 12 hours away.

    LOL. If they pulled me I would take as long as possible to find my license/paperwork just to make the poor po po standing in the storm earn his $115

    It was built as a movie prop so I doubt "replacement value" is in their policy if they have one.

    What makes this storm different is that it is going to collide with a Nor'easter. Apparently this makes it much more dangerous.

    They keep changing the expected time of arrival. Things are pretty quiet right now though.

    More than likely I'll lose power, so this might be the last time I can be on line for days.
