I have what I need.
Still have to go get the chairs and plants in from the garden. My bulkhead is there so its a quick cleanup.
I'm up on a hill, so the problem for me will be wind and the street down hill that leads to getting out. Old neighborhoods here still follow cow paths. Go figure... in Boston. Anyway... I may be trapped and without power in alot of wind, gust now expected in my area up to seventy. I have what I need, camping stoves to cook on if extended loss of power. It's only going to be forties and fifties, so loss of heat isn't much. You just have to dress for January...lol.
same here, with my expectations from Irene. We just did this and although it took out all the pears from my trees, it didn't take any of them down. The house is built into a blue granite hill, It's not going anywhere, and we only lost power for about half an hour. What worries me this time is the length of time on the power outage. The Storm is hitting the heart of our power grid. New England could go dark for an extended period of time if Connecticut takes a hard hit. It would affect NYC and Jersey the same way I'd imagine.
