So the latest on this storm is not good for most of the East Coast. It should make landfall monday night and finally head back out to sea around thursday. From 12+ inchs of Rain to 1 - 2 feet of snow and winds 50 - 80 mph. Not a good thing at all....God is really testing me at this time...

But its not all about me...I hope everyone on here that lives in and around the East Coast will be ok. Be safe take some shelter and be stocked up on water and non perishable food..... This is going to be a very historic storm. Don't think just cause its no where near as strong as Katrina it wont be bad....It will be. Most of the weather man ( Real Ones ) have said in 50 years or so of reporting the weather I have never seen all these components come together all at once before.

Have some family time...I'm sure all of us haven't had as much as we wanted lately. Of yeah called everywhere in about a 50 mile diameter and I couldn't find a single Generator. Stores are answering there phones " Sold Out of Generators, Can I help you? " :lol2

I was in S Fla for Andrew..... This is nothing

It's not going to have the major winds but 80 mph winds lasting for up to 48 hrs with a foot or more of rain is a hell of a storm....Its a one in a million or billion storm....The winds are going to be in a 500 mile circle...Thats pretty big...

true..They are forecasting for the Pressure to be 949mb when it makes land fall....That will break a record that has stood for over 200 years here.....the old record 966.4mb.....

Power inverter for your car, extension cord, power strip, and run the car for a bit to keep the battery juiced up, gives you extra capacity for the puter to get on when needed........
