    I figured we could maybe be non-partisan for a bit. To everyone on the coast, stay safe. To the rest of you, send positive energy our way.

    NYC now has winds of 45 miles an hour. That's down from over 50, this morning. Schools, courts, the stock market and other state and city offices are closed. our supermarket is closed, but our neighborhood bagel place was open. My husband went out and brought back hot whole wheat bagels so his trip out wasn't a total loss. We're in what they're calling zone B... which in NYC's parlance now means that we're in danger of flooding only if Sandy hits a catagory 2.

    who else is in the storm zone and what are you doing to cope?

    Thanks, gramps. I'm concerned about some of my friends in Zone A. Because last year's hurricane turned out to be a big nothing, they're treating this one as if it's the same type of storm and haven't evacuated even though they've been ordered to.

    kind of a 'boy cries wolf' thing, unfortunately.

    and i can't imagine what's going to happen with my family's place on the jersey shore. that's worrying.

    Can your friends in Zone A still leave?

    Came to work today and we're closed! Doesn't seem that bad in B'more. Bagels sound good. Wish I was closer. Tough to get a good one here. Good luck everybody.

    Nope they just declared the roads unpassable.

    they also just shut the belt parkway. i don't remember them ever shutting the belt.

    very strange.

    i also had this idea that if i kept my computer charged, i'd be connected throughout the storm. but our internet is starting to slow. so the satellite connection may start being a problem.
