    Stand your ground, don't let the media 'scare' you away (you know,MANDATORY evacuations). This media hype is as dangerous as a 'real' huricane.

    got one of my daughters and her boys right on the barrier island on the jersey shore. trying to get ahold of her to see if she's being evac'd. march storm of 62 wiped the area out and this is promising to be bigger. and yeah, there will be idiots out there surfing

    This might be a whopper in shear s-i-z-e as much as power, a LOT of rain, wind, power out all that miserable stuff.

    Well we threw in some new grass seed, Sandy might water it even way over here in NE Ohio.

    So far I can only see this as networks trying to sell cat food and toilet paper.

    In a couple or three days we will know whether to take it seriously.

    Gee fellas this is just a barely a cat one. 80 mph winds, this isnt no different than issac. He sat on us for a long time. Wasn't bad. SO this storm is gona erode the coast, so what. We have that happen all time. Enjoy it. Especially enjoy it when the politicians say they dont want to rebuild it. Yea everyone needs to feel that joy. Liked your vacation house on the beach? Might as well destroy it cause if bozo gets another 4 years you will have to give it to bozo for a loaf of bread.

    Im in one of those moods this morning, cant ya tell?

    little pussy hurricane. OOOWWWW watch out your not gona have food for weeks. Roads will be shut down. Your all gona die and then you will get swept out to sea where the crabs will feast on your bodies. hahahahahaha

    Just in time for holloween, this would make a great horror flick. The headless horseman rides thru the city in the middle of the hurricane going door to door and chopping heads off.

    Yes looks like it will be bad next week. I will get the generator out tomorrow and fire it up to get ready in case. I am in NE PA in the Wyoming Valley and live 100 ft from the Susquehanna river. My house was under 20' of water in the Agnes flood of '72. That is what worries me more than the wind. If this thing stalls for any length of time ... Looks like it will be hitting us straight on.

    Agreed the hurricane is not an issue but there is another very large front coming from the northwest and they are saying that they will merge into the so called "Frankenstorm" Now if that don't scare the BeeeJezus out of ya. LOL Seriously, though it may merge with this front and the fear is it will stall for a few days dumping copious amounts of liquid sunshine on our bald domes. My dome cannot take so much.

    I'll pass on your enlightenment. I have family and friends in Jersey. They got hit last year this time. They were without for weeks.
    There is supposed to be a cold front coming with it. That's gonna dump a lot of wet heavy snow. They're looking at more than just beaches eroding.

    too bad it didn't hit while they were filming jersey shore. I could deal with seaside heights being destroyed if snooki was washed out to sea. that said, my kid lives there. the ocean will meet the bay and probably cut a new inlet to boot. Heck, been through a couple of nasty nor'easter that did a lot of damage. Loss of power will be the main issue, jersey central power and light are clueless. and don't forget, they have the oldest operating nuke plant in the country on lacey township, oyster creek, built in the 60's.
    best get out the gennie. bet there isn't a loaf of bread or gallon o milk left in the stores by now. if you live up that way you know what i mean.

    The good thing about being without power this time of year, it isn't 95 degrees with 90% humidity. Well, the humidity may be there.

    Its no fun being without power. The last bad one we had we were without for 13 days.

    Ya'll be careful and keep your powder dry.:)
