i gotta be honest with you, i'm worried. i'm doing some things, but i never had to prepare for something like this and i lack the resources to do so fully. this is not good and one model shows a beeline for me, but the rest aren't that far off from that one either so i'm just hoping and praying. i think there are many people in the path of this thing that are in the same boat figuratively and may even literally need one.
this is bad enough with a hurricane coming in, but with this front going through too this could be a wintry hurricane here. this will be very interesting as i haven't been able to replace my leaking roof as of yet either. large rainfall amounts like that a hurricane can deliver may also liberate the hillside behind me as well.
i did put an advisory up in the news and announcements area. we normally don't do this for inclimate weather, but this is unique in that it's a double whammy and nobody knows what might happen out of this, but one thing you can be certain of is that it won't be good. it's a matter of what degree of bad that is experienced from it all.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation... I hope that you're spared the worst of the storm.
I'm now in in Mills River, near Asheville in western North Carolina. We're on the "backside" of the storm, and it was cold and windy last night. It's supposed to be worse tonight and tomorrow, but I think we're in good shape here at home.
I hope you and all of our friends hang in there!

btw for those that aren't in the know of the general outlook here, solar will not do me much of any good as the skies will be gloomy for many days.

Yeah, solar is of little use during these. During Issac two months ago, I got a whopping 200 watt-hours per kilowatt of array on the darkest day of the storm, which after system tare losses is barely better than nothing.
Best wishes to everyone in Sandy's path.
