Awwwwwwww, FroBaby .

Love the bit with your son, too, that's cool . Glad to hear all seemed to go well-sorry Obama couldn't be there, but certainly understandable, and Biden and Clinton are worth seeing in their own right, so hey. Looking forward to reading about the full thing when you get the chance.

Hope the rain lets up soon!

The rain isnt supposed to let up anytime soon...Mr CK & I were making jokes about needing to build an ark while standing in line for the rally today

I've got batteries, gallon jugs of water, and am keeping the phones on their chargers when not in use. We're only getting the outer edges but it is more than enough for me!

omg>> they i think were not going to close a very few bridges (most have either been closed around 4P, others at 7P) like the RFK-Triborough Bride - but the Governer just closed this bridge because they got reports of a few 100 mph wind gusts.
I know you further south and in or near Tornadio Alley have dealt with is more than we. (high winds & /rain)

Grace, I'm in the western Bronx. I'm in a Apt building 6 stories / 2nd flr me. My windows face south, and east. But we are at the top of a moderate-medium hill aand the buildings south of us are smallish to small private houses. So on that side we are in a U-shape. aand there nothing to our south after that for several blocks.

My first concern is below us down the hill is a car window and hub cap repair/replacement service place. A Lot of stuff sits around out side. Of course they should have put stuff away but who knows how well taat's been done. My bedroom windows and bathroom ones face towards it.

So I got up on a chair and taped the the window closest to the more exposed part of the "U" upper rightside "pillar/arm". The othe window is closer to the gully of the "U", and it's ot the firescape window /window gate in place. I didn't do that one. Taped the bottom hslf of bathroom winow too hard to etn up to top as it overlooks my bathtub.

The I dceobated about the other windows . One I've just pulled the blinds down. There's also a locked window gate on that one because the width-end of trhe firescape is there.

THEN way in the wee hrs of last night Ii was reading on line about wind speeds ...so somewhere 100?mph oe 120mph or maybe somewhat below 100mph Roof Tiles can come off.
Well guess what the smallish building south of me has........ a tiled roof!

So I taped up the bottoms of the kitchen and other living room window. Did not do the tops so hope for the best all around. I pulled the shades down.
If i look like an idiot to a few oif my neighbors oh well....

Sometimes Mayor Bloomie is very good, but other times..... he can be extremely arrogant...and sometimes have a tin ear for working class & poor people as well.

He said something like "we have everything we need.." blah, blah

thanks JJ.

Here's the Big Problem w The Subway in Lower Manhattan. The whole southern end of Manhattan is basically a few feet above sea/river level.
Our subways some stations here and there have gotten flooded with RAIN Water over the decades.

But as far as I know NEVER Sait Water! THAT's the danger! There are 2 stations quite near the bay of the Hudson River Manhattan's southermost tip is and right by where The Staten Island Ferry docks. The river opens up into Upper & Lower Hudson Bay Statue of Liberty Island and Governor's Island are in it. Across the way (bay) is part of Northern New Jersey- Hoboken, Jersys City etc .

The Hudson River (Bay area) is techinically a Fjord ! The actually southern part of the river is sort of submerged and the Seawater from the Atlantic Ocean comes in. There are Tides practically up to Albany NYS!

I was thinking about 2 hours ago -- couldn't they at least have sand-baged THAT area??? Having seen enough TV footage over the years of people near the Missouri & Mississippi Rivers and local Rivers here in Northern Jersey who do that!

I love Dr Michio! He's a Professor here at City College (big breliever in String Theroy as well. ). I've known of him for dcecades since he's been an anti-nuclear weapons, maybe also nuclear power speaker esp in the 1980's. Saw him talking to us at some proest I was at from a flart bed truck.
He also has done a science radioo series i hear off & on in the past several years!

as for Frankenstorm, all hell has broken loose since post-rally. it is windy as hell here and POURING BUCKETS of rain. I'm near Youngstown, OH for those wondering. Also, I did post a few pics from the rally to my FB so those are available to look at.

Here, look at cute kids doing political stuff.


FroBaby 'eating' my Obama pin.


Lil' CK watching his namesake, Pres. Clinton (my son's name is Clinton for those who don't know)
Aw, FroBaby
And Lil' CK!

So far yes!

In the more inland (not on ocean, river edge) and higher up areas where most power lines are underground it's usually safe. Sometimes there can be an encroachment from those area maybe a bit into the underground lines...not sure.

however I have 3 flashlights, 2 transistor radios and candles/matces.

thanks for checking.

wow i'd only heard not seen the pics of thne crane yet . yikes!

Yeah, Dazz...I put a few things up over the course of the day on my FB. I will do a full write up on my LJ and load photos to an album on FB tomorrow if the power stays on. Right now Mr. CK & I are keeping MSNBC and The Weather Channel on, and making sure that we have things ready to go in the event of power outages (flashlights close by, water ready for bottle making for FroBaby, snacks that dont require cooking like granola and cereal, etc).

And thanks Tara!

I just hope everyone in the worst paths of this storm stay safe!!!

when the wind gusts there's something down there in the tiny back "court yard" that's clunking. rattling around. Sound like wood, not metal....
