I do not think here in western Pennsylvania hurricane Sandy will have too serious an effect, but to everyone further east and up and down the east coast, be careful and I hope it does not affect you too badly.

Yes, I too wish them well. That storm looks a monster.

Yes, take down your lawn signs. (I found that quoted on another forum. It's the kind of detail I'd never think of :))

Most injuries occur post-storm, now is not the time for do it yourself electrical projects or fooling with chain saws. Relax, chill out, stay at home, out of traffic. Leave the electrical work and chain saw stuff to the pros, they will eventually show up.

It would be a little different if Florida had basements and subways to worry about. Not to mention valleys with rivers where all the water ends up.
Lets face facts, everything in Florida is designed (natural and manmade) to withstand a hurricane and flooding.

We had a long powercut in Southampton, ON - over 1000 miles away from NY. Huge storm.
