Two days ago, the storm was heading out to sea and nothing to worry about. Last night, I'm watching the news and now it may be barreling towards the east coast as a catagory 1 storm or maybe tropical storm. The computer models are all over the place.
We'll probably get hit with a lot of much needed rain. We're still in something of a minor drought since having that mild winter.
When storms head my way, I just make sure I have enough batteries. I'm in the city and the longest I've been without power is maybe a half a day. Locally, I've seen NSTAR trucks trimming tree branches. that's something.
