Oh Fudge!

Just came across this map of Sandy's projected path and It makes me a wee bit concerned.

See that dot for "8PM Wed"? That's about where the Aerie is located. On the NY side of the border are Corning and Elmira. Both were hit very hard by Agnes in 1972 and again last year when Irene swept through the area in the summer of 2011. (At least this time there were numerous levees and dikes in place to protect the towns and cities from flooding. Right! Tell that to those towns and cities that still got three to four feet of raging Susquehanna River roaring down Main Street.) And both got smacked this past summer with tornadoes.

It's going to be one very interesting weekend/Monday.

We will hold good thoughts for you and your neighbors. Hoping this storm decides to head east, but I guess it probably won't

I hope it misses you entirely, or at least produces nothing but some wind & light rain. I know you're as prepared as you can be, so we're pulling for you.

Yah, we're watching it too. I gotta check the battery stocks for the battery powered stuff, but we've got enough kerosene for those lamps, and the wood stove if temps drop. Power outage would suck, but we'll set up coolers with food for everyone just in case.
