I'll survive with no power for a week like last year of it comes to that, just as long as theres no snow and a tree doesn't take a bite out of my car again. That sucked massively.

Terrifying. Everyone in the East Coast region affected by Sandy and everyone on the West Coast or in Hawaii affected by the Tsunami: Stay safe! You're in our thoughts. Hopefully it won't be as bad after all.

I'm up in Yonkers instead of out on the Island. Hopefully, it misses us.

I'm on Staten Island, NY so I may get some flooding, but you never know. I'm just grateful that my neighbors cut down their massive trees recently so I wouldn't have to be afraid of them toppling over and hitting my house.

Schools are closed for tomorrow, the MTA will shut down tonight. This is going to be loads of fun I just hope my batteries will last long enough for who knows how long.

Well I get off from work tomorrow... that's a bonus, I guess. Probably Tuesday too.

Will be interesting... of the storm surge is as bad as they say it could be and gets into the subways and power lines underground, we could be fucked for a while.

The blog I go to for weather, and that I trust more than the mainstream folks because he's not trying to scare up ratings, is saying there could be a 12 foot rise in water level on the battery, which would be bad.

It pays to live within a 10 block radius of the mayor when you're concerned about losing power...

Which blog is this?

I checked everywhere to make sure I didn't need to evacuate, and apparently I don't, so that's a relief. But this hurricane is still making me nervous, because its being reported as much worse than Irene last year.

The best thing about this is watching the news all day and listening to Bloomberg's poor attempts at Spanish during live conferences. He should've taken lessons.

I'm a poor college kid who is hopelessly unprepared if the power is out for an extended period of time. And I don't have a car to go load up on supplies at a supermarket, so I'm pretty much sitting here like a jackass.

Can anyone help you? Any classmates, friends? Does your school have some sort of a shelter?

I mean, I have plenty of friends, just not many that are going to want to drive to the store in hurricane conditions. And I have no idea about any kind of shelter. I doubt I'll need that. I'm just worried about losing contact with people if the power is out for an extended period of time. I'm in journalism. Being car-less is bad. Being car-less and phoneless is an emergency.

It' s extremely scary. Two years in a row now to have to live through this anxiety. Not dealing well with it either. My mother hasn't taken trees down that I've been telling her for years to take down, so that's a major source of worry for me. Hopefully after this she will, if they don't come down and hit her house or wires or whatever first.

Stay safe everyone here who is in the path, and check in if you can.

Phils Fan, can you try to get a ride to your parents house? Do they live too far away? Are you living on campus? While you can still get online try to find a shelter, something. They could try to get you a ride to get there. I would think someone at your school can help you. Red Cross is good too. They would most likely have a cell phone there that you could use. Either at a Red Cross mobile unit or a shelter.
