As I was watching the news and getting ready for my day I saw the report about the possible impact sites of Hurricane Irene which is basicaly the entire East Coast. As I was doing my inventory of "Who should I be worried about" I realized that there were probably tons of Tu members in it's path as well. I haven't been a member of Tu for very long but I've got to say I'm genuinly worried about you guys! I can't imagine having to prepare for this sort of thing let alone making sure you've got enough supplies, snacks, ect. Without knowing it's path or possible severity I know it makes it even harder to prepare but I wish you all the best and hope you have enough supplies.

Good luck,

Be prepared,

Be safe!



Wishing you all the best from Idaho,

Decaff

I'm in Ocean City, NJ and we didn't even loose power during the storm. There was some wind and some water in the street, but that's about it. I know I should've evacuated, but I have dogs and cats. Hopefully we're done with the earthquakes and hurricanes for awhile.
Lucky you!! We lost power for 6 hours and it's not been stable since. Still, it's better than my neighbors across the street who still do not have power and may not have power until Wednesday.
Glad to hear everyone is doing okay! Look like it could've been a lot worse!
