We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
We tend to lose power and all other utilities with storms. If this is like the past, it could take days to restore utilities. I just heard on the radio that utility bucket truck convoys are already heading east from Iowa. Thanks, Iowa.
This storm is huge - only Cat 1 but possibly the largest storm, in area affected, ever seen in the North Atlantic. I'd get out of low-lying coastal areas about now, from the south coast of Cape Cod through Jersey due to the predicted storm surges. I'd get out of river flood plains too. This storm will plow well inland after it goes feet dry.
I imagine my site, remote hosted somewhere in the world ,but where I have no idea, will stay up.
Located near a electric substation with a underground cable the house should be good, unless something takes out a nearby pole.
At the North point of the Chesapeake... all the outside stuff is weighted down, live on a declining slope, and stoked up on LED lights, batteries, non-frige food, and wine. Spam is good in these cases...
Now, I gotta remember where I put that Cheddar wheel...
