Really not looking forward to a couple days without power...

Although I think we'll be better off now than in the summer when we lived in a sauna for a few days... we have lots to bundle up in. We are better prepared with stuff than we were then. Plus the summer storms knocked out all the dead branches that were worrying me. There's a relatively healthy tree towering over our bedroom but let's hope it doesn't get that bad. The nice thing about this place is that with the fairly spacious crawl space I have no worries at all about flooding. That is quickly becoming my favorite feature of the house - it has made dealing with some plumbing issues really easy too (well, relatively easy).

Still, this does not look like it's going to be a wimpy storm. Hoping for the best.

I liked these, though:

And this (from here):

I have to admit, one of my biggest disappointments is that we won't be getting trick-or-treaters.

    1. No we considered getting one after the summer but decided against it... we'll see if that was a mistake.

      How are you doing? We both are avoiding dead center but you're getting a bunch of it too.

    2. What made you decide not to get one?

      We should be fine. We live on a hill, and all the power lines in out part of brooklyn are buried. Heck even my car is in a garage! Our main challenge is going to be entertaining our kids inside for two days.

      The city is like completely shut down, though. I drove a friend to his gf's house this morning (because all the cab places are shut down)and 9:00 on a monday looked like 6:00am on a sunday.

    3. Being gone for the weekend and competing priorities when we got in yesterday afternoon. Plus the experience during the summer that most of the gas stations were closed anyway. Not a detailed CBA by any means :)
