POWER OUTS

For those of you that have known me for years, you know I am like an ole mother hen about all of you (even those who are my age or older) I can't help it. I suppose not having any kids of my own I have adopted all my gambling forum buds as such. THAT BEING SAID... I have a feeling a ton of you will be without power (possibly for days).. If you have cell phones that work please please please shoot me a short email or something so that I know you guys are ok. This is Not a have to... as your own family and close friends should always come first in these situations... but it's a heart felt plea. It doesn't have to be much something simple like... "No power but all is well - joeblow" (screen name will do). Those of you that have my personal email use it or use my forum email of [email protected]. (YES I KNOW WE AREN'T SUPPOSE TO PUT EMAILS OUT THERE BUT THIS IS AN EMERGENCY) Those of you that have my cell # can text as well. ANYTHING. (Sorry I can't post that or trust me I would in this situation)

You guys please be careful. They are calling this one of the worst storms ever and I've lived thru my share and just can't imagine..

GOOD tip, I freeze lots of water in plastic containers ... it thaws and you have cool drinking water or at least clean water for whatever. Plus the frozen containers of Ice will also help to keep the food in refrig and freezer cold longs. I also fill jugs of water (I save cat litter jugs) and I put them out of the way but use them to fill tank to flush toilets. You can't be too prepared. OF course my family thinks I'm nuts until we need my silly things.

I live in central PA. right now we have hard rain, and wind starting to pick up to about 25 mph. I think the worst of it is supposed be start between 8-10 pm and continue through Tuesday.

This would be a good thread for everybody to report the weather conditions in your area.

Nice post, thinking of others often goes unnoticed or unappreciated, well done you and for those that may be in the way of the storm, stay safe.

Had my lights flicker a half dozen times, but still have power. Headed to bed shortly but I know I will not sleep real well with the wind howling. From what I have heard on the news, it should be all over in PA by early afternoon Tuesday. Hope they are correct.

Ryan has no power at this time, lots of wind and some rain. Waiting for the storm surge and prayers that when he returns back to his house that its not under water.

Prayers and wishes to everyone in harms way.

We were pretty lucky where I live. A few tress down and very little power outages. I hope everybody is doing ok this morning.
