Watching the Weather Channel on & off all day. All prepared but started getting very worried this morning. I'm a lil norht of NYC and they're expecting it to hit us pretty hard. Hubby is a volunteer firefighter and will prob be out helping others. Luckily my 18 yr old son will be here with me and my 5 yr old daughter. I'm worried all the way around but this morning it hit me that if and when we lose power, most or all of our food will spoil. fridge & freezer is full so thats gonna be a heck of an expense. and then how am I gonna stick to this diet? ugh! It also dawned on me that with no power I will have to sleep without my cpap. I'm praying we aren't without power for more than a night but I think thats unrealistic, prob be several nights. no electric or running water. great. kissing my lovely vegtable garden goodbye too. nothing was quite ready to harvest except the basil so I plucked all of it. sigh. I was really looking forward to all those cherry tomotos, zuchinni,green beans, lettuce and spinach! Thanks Irene! Hope everyone else is safe.
