The rain is picking up here again. We're about 10 miles NW of Philadelphia. The entire city is shut down (all trains/buses/subways, schools, City Hall, etc) but... my husband is at work. I am very anxious about thsi! I'm hoping he comes home early.

Still hoping for the best and I'm praying we avoid a power outage. Is everyone keeping cell phones, etc charged today??

Anotehr thing - I froze some water bottles and empty milk jugs to use in the cooler to keep things cold should we lose power. Easier than trying to score ice during a hurricane! We, too, have no generator but family members close by do so I guess that's ok in worst case scenario.

I'm in the same boat ... my office closed today (I'm working from home), but Mr. went in to his office on the train. I'm worried about his getting stranded downtown if they suspend service or get stuck somewhere. He was out for his dad's funeral on Friday, so he felt like he had to put in an appearance today. Wish he'd just come home.

Yesterday I charged up everything I could, did all the laundry, and ran the dishwasher.

Power is still up for now ... nearly 60,000 without power now in Massachusetts ... and Mr. is on his way home on the last train running. Worried about those in the path of the landfall, which will occur in roughly 3 hours.

This is horrible! I hope that all people who live in the area which is affected by the storm will manage to go through all of this safely. Take care of yourself and your families!

Both safely home now. We're prepared in case we lose power. Over 150,000 without now in Massachusetts.

We still have power, but the gusts of wind have been amazing, I had to drive around a downed tree on my way home. Please all stay safe.
