Tracking Sandy aka Frankenstorm

This is quite a storm that is hitting the Northeast Corridor. Sandy or "Frankenstorm" is pummeling us. Last year during this time, the week of Halloween, we were hit with a snowstorm! And now, we have a Hurricane.  Oh, my! Here is a snapshot of the latest Con Edison power outage.  Roughly 200,000 customers are without power now.  Luckily, it hasn't affected my neighborhood yet.  Here is the link for the Con Ed power map.
My friends told me to fill my bathtub with water in case there is a power outage and we have no running water. I don't have a bathtub in this new place, so I did the next best thing. I filled all my garbage pails with water. It's not for drinking, it's to flush the toilet in case there is no running water.
A lot of my family and friends are without power. In case my power goes out, I found all my flashlights, candles, and pain reliever in case of headache. Sandy, I'm ready for you.
I can hear the wind howling outside. The weatherman says it's gusts of 50 mph. There are reports of lots of flooding in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Jersey City and Hoboken. Prayers and thoughts for all those in the path of the storm. Stay safe out there!


  1. I thought about you when I saw the news last night. Please take care. I know what you are going thru. When Katrina hit the gulf coast we were without power for 13 and 1/2 days.

    Just recently when Iaasic hit, we lost power and water for a couple of days.

  2. how strange! this post from october just turned up in my email today!
