School is closed here for tomorrow. I have to admit, I'm getting pretty nervous about this thing. They're saying power outages lasting 7-10 days. I'm not good at roughing it. Luckily, I have a gas stove, so I can cook. My rechargeable light is all charged and I have flashlights and candles. Doing my lesson plans now in case I lose power. Good luck everyone!

I just blew out my gutters with a leaf blower from my second story window. I'm done now. Time to go open one of those 6 cases of Hamm's we have around here...

Good luck peeps, hoping for as little as possible, that goes without saying.
Stay safe.

Just thought to transcode some movies tonight for the iPad. I'm usually a streamer, but I'll have nothing to stream from if the power goes. And a wifi-only iPad without a tethering plan will really only be good for movies in such a situation.

You haven't had Hamms beer since you were a child?

Yes, true. With my dad it was no big deal for me as a child to have an ice cold beer on a hot summer day. I think that was the only time I would drink it to quench my thirst. This was back in rhe day when things were more innocent, not like today with all the political correctness BS.

It never adversely affected me in the least although some on this forum might beg to differ. LOL

Frantically copying files from server to Mac where I need to convert them down to an iPad 16GB friendly size. At the same time, packing up my 64GB iPad 2 (which I could use about now) for a completed eBay sale.

I'm a few miles away inland vs Irene, where we were flooded. This time around, I'm worried most about trees.
