Anyone being effected by Hurricane Sandy?
Or going to be effected by it?

This is my first Hurricane/ Tropical Storm that I will ever be in.
I just moved to Pennsylvania. I probably wont be getting it as bad as some people.
But I have to say I am scared.

Last year when Hurricane Irene hit thought the town I'm currently living in was under water.
They are saying that the Hurricane Sandy has the potential to be worse than Irene too.

Ouch. I live in MD, though right now the weather is pretty calm, it's expected to become very bad in the next few hours. To be honest I would be very scared as well, but my applications for school are due in 3 days, and I'm not sure if I'll be able to finish them on time. :\
But I guess as we can do is hope for the best.

Yeah it's pretty calm here too.
But all schools, including my college are closed today.

Suppose to be getting bad also in the next few hours.

Just hoping that this storm doesn't do what is predicted.

yeah, i'm in pennsylvania too. the middle of it, to be precise. it's already raining and whatnot, and has been since yesterday, so i suppose we've been getting the edges of the hurricane. i'm not overtly concerned for myself, because i live on a hill and am surrounded by mountains; my dad is a huge junkie for survival tools regardless so we're pretty prepared.
...ah, wait, except for this huuuge dead tree that's quite close to our house. i'm legitimately worried about it falling over and causing the roof/attic to fall in, which would likely result in people getting hurt or worse, although my dad thinks it's unlikely.

i am really worried about other people, though, especially those in new york and new jersey-- apparently mandatory evacs are going on in certain places there? and one of my closest friends lives in a trailer and you can feel it shake in just a thunder storm. ack. :(

anyways. keep safe, lovelies!! best wishes to all of you. <3

I'm over in Massachusetts [near the Boston area], where the weather's gotten bad enough that the college has effectively shut down for the day, but the worst will be coming tonight from what I've heard. It's a lot of heavy rain and wind, but it's definitely not as bad as some other places. Everyone in those areas, please stay safe - and if the city tells you to evacuate, evacuate.

Schools here have shut down for both today and tomorrow. (colleges and high schools)

I'm in North Eastern Pennsylvania.
and the rain just started.
It terribly cold though.
And they are telling us to expect prolonged power outages.

We are trying to get dinner cooked before we lose power. (er, if we lose power)
otherwise I guess peanut butter and jelly sandwiches until it comes back on.

We've been getting brief power outages for the past two hours already; guess things are getting worse.

*sigh* My whole town is recked. Most of my friends and family don't have power and the neighboring town on the beach is just..

I never thought being the shore of New Jersey would ever have something like this happen.
