    Thank you, Ken. I happen to live on one of the highest points...........trees are already down.
    but how high could that be?? Like a hill or knoll?

    PS I'm glad you are aware of correct pronunciation of Lon-Gisland.
    how else would you say it? It's not like it is two words or sumptin'

    Bait, I think that you are in a pretty low lying area. You're not evacuating?

    Stay safe, moscowitz. This does look like a bad one. I saw water over the beach and onto the streets on the Rockaway Peninsula. Could happen by you.

    Not as low as alot of places nearby, believe it or not. Worst part for us is the fact that we are directly in it's way. So, combination of rain, wind, is almost certain to add up to power outage. We're pretty prepared. But, got a lot of time to ride it. The more time goes by, the better the chances are to lose power. My biggest concern is my dad, who is 30 miles away. But, he's on really high ground and has a 15kv generator hooked up to his whole building. (House is built on top of his airplane hangar) Built like a fort.
    You guys hold on for the ride. Good luck to you all and God Bless.

    I live on the edge of the terminal moraine of the glacier and can see out over the southern half of Lon-Gisland. I guess like a small ridge?

    There's only one way to say it and that's as one word, the way you and I say it.

    (Apropos to this, I once heard Tennessee Ernie Ford say that his teacher tried to get him to spell 'taters with a p.)

    Was out this morning letting the pups run around before it got real bad. I tossed a bumper that went more sideways than far. Also had to use the Ken Bora check cord to hold down my little 4 month old pup. nearly blew away LOL.

    So far just a little drizzle and some gusty winds. Rain is suppose to start tonight and the worst of the winds will be tonight. Predicting 30-40 mph wind with gusts up to 60 mph and only up to 3 inches of rain, even though it is suppose to rain most of the week. Thankfully temps are above normal so no bitter cold to go with the wind. We will be getting off easy compared to those farther south.

    Prayers for all.
