    So my work called and they've canceled work for tomorrow. Of course I left all my traveling stuff for my flight on Tuesday on my desk at work figuring I'd get it Monday, so I ran over there tonight. Most everybody is safely tucked in at home, so the roads were emptyish. On the way back home I stopped at the grocery store to pick up a bag of ice and some fresh vegetables. I figured it would be really picked over, and certain things were (bottled water) but they had a fair supply of fresh food.

    Certainly typified the "calm before the storm!"

    On my way home I got an email saying my flight Tuesday is canceled...sigh.

    I'm with you there - I have never understood how chips came to be standard fare.

    I'm glad you aren't going to be trying to get back and forth from work and off to airports etc. Just embrace the unexpected holiday and stay safe!

    I do not understand airlines. My direct flight from Hartford to Minneapolis, leaving Tuesday at 11:00 was canceled. Fair enough. so they sent me a list of flights, all leaving Tuesday from 10:30 - 12:30. None direct, all through Atlanta or Detroit! In fairness, mine was to be a small plane, which they probably don't want to fly through high winds.

    But still, my two hour flight will now be five hours (counting layover in Detroit, among my least favorite airports). Likely this itinerary will get canceled too. I don't think things will be much better on Tuesday.

    Funny I'm more worried about the travel troubles than I am the big-assed storm coming near...

    Hopefully the whole lot of flights are cancelled until Sandy has done her thing and everything is settled down. Hoping that you get some good rest and primal meat despite the storm! Keep us informed as you can! Wait until the generators are on sale after the storm has done and then at least you'll be ready for the next one!

    Don't obsess too much about Tuesday's flights. They'll probably all get cancelled.

    So not much in the way of wind or water here so far. Still have power. Here in CT we're supposed to get little (relatively) rain. The damage is supposed to be the wind, but chiefly the storm surge. They are this morning forcasting 8 - 11 feet over normal high tide for some areas. If that is true, the far end of our street (dead end- we're on a peninsula surrounded by a river leading into Long Island Sound) will be submerged. The water is supposed to be 5 feet higher than what we saw during Irene last year. If that's true, we should be fine.

    We'll wait out the first high tide cycle. If things get ugly we'll evacuate.

    Rainy days and Mondays always get me dowwwwn!

    Keep us updated if you can! Thinking about you as I hear the storm warnings coming across the radio.

    I'm going to be fine here in mid-coast Maine - it will be west of us mostly.
