    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Heard about the winds this am...those will be the killer, stay safe.

    We get high winds alot here....and with tons of evergreens, they hold the wind...and the snow. They come down alot. We have branches on our trees as big as your trees back east, lol. Those suckers come down all over. By this time most winters, like this yr, we've had so much wind that (most) anything weak has already come down. It thins things out every year.

    Good luck, combined with a heavy snow load, stuff will be coming down and collapsing. My family is all in NY & NJ, & PA...but single family homes without huge trees for the most part. They just need to be prepared for the power to go out.

    Ack, I'll send our nor'easter your way! I love snow most of the time, but these big storms are a pain in the ass for so many reasons. LMAO about the baby boom, you are SO right! Sadly my husband is away on business....otherwise I'd be following the lead of the others.

    But if you ever lose your house in a natural disaster, the insurance will help you get back in a home, but not in the days immediatelly following the disaster.
    Mine actually has some sort of transitional living coverage for that. If my house were to burn, I could make out like a bandit. I could just shop til I dropped while they built my new house back. (in theory)

    Hang in there Tres. This is what makes us New Englanders! We get four awesome seasons and get to see everything that comes with them. My checklist for the day looks like this:

    Food - Check
    Gas - Check
    Generator Fired Up - Check
    Snow Blower - Not so much...but it is jerry rigged for the next 36 hours
    Alcohol - Check
    Firewood - Check
    Puzzle - Check

    Ready to go. I look forward to this every year!

    That's what worries me Lursa (the power going out). My husband is away too. Hopefully my kids are mature enough to help me.

    Yes you did have big trees out your way. Most of our evergreens here in NH do well in the snow; it's the smaller leaf trees that suffer. We had a big storm over Thanksgiving and our birch trees got pummeled.

    I know you had to have family in NJ by virtue of you referring to the beach area of NJ as "the shore" in an early post. That's a total NJ thing!

    You got the necessities down! I'm making sure I take a shower as late as possible tonight assuming it may be my last for a few days.

    When my kids get home from school, it's out to the log piles for them to bring as much wood to the deck as they can. I also have to go to the basement and get all of the lanterns upstairs and ready.

    We are hardy New Englanders so you're right - we'll make it through this!

    My husband plows our 300+ foot long driveway with the 4 wheeler which has a plow on the front but he's away and won't be able to fly back in until well after it's all over. I can't do it, and the kids will break the damn thing. I need my next door neighbor to take pity on me. He has a snow blower.
