evacuations to the north and south of me, but I am not near any body of water, so I hope I will stay high and dry.

Of course the Media around here is loving this.

Claudia? I guess you must be out looking for D batteries-sold out in MD.

What I meant to get, but didn't was a small charcoal grill. What a hoot if this storm heads out to sea!

Re: What's in YOUR weather forecast? Preparing for Sandy

Re: The big YouTube videos topic

Interesting that you should say that- it's my family that scoffed at me the most. SIGH I eventually l...
