Hopefully everyone on the northeast and midatlantic area are keeping an eye on this storm. Particularly if you have animals not in brumation at this time. Power outages are possible and this might be combined with some rather low temperatures.

Be prepared....

I been praying & hoping all day it isn't to bad. I did what I could do but still have some worry not knowing what to fully expect. Hopefully if I do lose power the enclosure will maintenance the temperatures for a while, hopefully the power restores pretty quickly. A lot of places around here sold out of generators & propane heaters really fast. I have a bunch of heat packs I figured I could wrap up & slide under the carpet in the enclosures until I borrow my fathers generator if it gets to that point. I'd lay in the enclosure myself if needed. If anyone has previously experienced during bad storms & learned any little tips to help get through it, I'd appreciate the advice.

Hopefully you got the generator and fuel before the "need" and the critters never know the difference.
Ya'll keep your heads down and try not to let the media get you razzed

just finished work, ready to & go tonight... It looks like a lot of others are getting hit a lot harder then folks in my location but I'm keeping my eyes open because some of these trees are rocking pretty good. Good luck to everyone getting hit hard!

Just got back power 10 minutes ago. I was not prepared for an outage for 36 hours.

no more then the usual ones walking around. I'm not sure how true it is but I heard a people did that were a lot closer to the coast.

those look like fake photos to me, esp the last one.

Regardless, I hope everyone and their critters made it through safe and sound.

:iagree: Something just doesn't look right about them & it seems weird the only animal captured in the photos are sharks.

ALL of the photo's are "real" the venue their aimed at at is a fail
Yahoo started the day with "five" then went to "ten" . . . . . .

by "real",those pics are not from NYC or any part of the upper east coast
Florida bull sharks are no stranger to the many canals in Fla.
Ive had them take catfish off my line many times fishing down there

My hope is that some will take this as yet another wake-up call.

When you here people talking about being prepared or people stating they are preppers don't dismiss it so easily with ridicule.

The long lines, fights for gas, the images coming out of people eating out of garbage cans.

Strange they should dare mention this ?

I was running DOD freight back during "The Storm" and we took a few loads out on
"the island",crystallized nitro isnt a consumable commodity last I knew.
Anyway during off load small talk the "you would be surprised" was dropped more then once during conversations.

We got hit fairly hard here in Ohio. Nothing like the coast of course. We had 65mph wind gusts and lots of damage and rain.
