Just make sure you are prepared to ride it out. All the usual advice and recommendations apply. It could be nothing or it could be epic...nothing lost by being ready, just in case. In particular, be sure your car(s) have full tanks, that you have water and non-perishables, battery-powered lighting and radios or TVs (and lots of extra, fresh batteries). If you're in an area prone to flooding or extended power outages, do what you can to prepare/protect your property and seriously consider relocating to safer accommodations before the storm arrives. And, for goodness sake, don't stock your fridge and freezer...especially if the power is notorious for going out and you don't have a generator that can keep it running for a week or 2. Nothing stupider than people without power whining to reporters about how the hundreds of dollars of refrigerated/frozen goods they bought before the storm had to all be thrown out because there's no power. -- "Dance like the photo isn't being tagged; love like you've never been unfriended; and tweet like nobody is following."
What the Post's says might happen based on the current data. They are favoring an indirect hit with major impact (45% chance), or a direct hit with severe impact (30%).
There are gazillions of variables that will affect what happens. Make preparations now and stay tuned to the weather forecasts. -- "Dance like the photo isn't being tagged; love like you've never been unfriended; and tweet like nobody is following."
Yeah for sure make preparations just in case. Lesson learned after the derecho storm - get extra gas for the genny *before* anything happens. (I never saw so many closed gas stations before that storm!)
Nah. But, it could sure be the beginning of the end for PEPCO if we have major outages and their restoration efforts are not significantly improved. -- "Dance like the photo isn't being tagged; love like you've never been unfriended; and tweet like nobody is following."
all I know is for those types of storms I lost 10 min of power or a little bit of dusting snow... Names mean not a damn thing. We are live in fear and being scared by the media to sell... wtfe... Let the drizzle come and go...
