Got back from a short trip to Indiana. On the way back I passed several convoys of utility truck crews heading East on the Indiana Toll Road.
One company from as far away as Colorado.
Prayers for safe travels and to be kept safe on their journey to the East Coast.
Here in the NY/NY/CT area preparations are really being made ahead by utilities, Local govts etc. I noticed just in my little town trucks checking out trees.
"They" are taking it very seriously
Praying for all.

When I saw the number of trucks I realized how serious they were taking this storm.
Then I passed one Opportunist Guy who had a truck full of new portable generators including a few strapped to the roof. He should make a fortune.
good to know....because we are possibly getting sustained winds of 80mph for 3 days.
every time there's a weather forecast the stats are worse.....
thankfully DH was able to fix the generator
love a good storm....but I'm not thinking this is going to be one of those 'good' storms
it's a combo of a n'or easter and a hurricane, the leaves are still on the trees, so damage may be extensive and when it picks up a cold front there may be snow. BAD BAD BAD

The power is out in several parts of my town already and the storm is still passing by the Outer Banks and isn't expected here around 3 a.m. Monday morning !
We love the power companies !

I saw 3 different convoys of utility line trucks, the ones with the cherry picker buckets on them. As I was exiting off the Toll Road to head for MI, there was another line of trucks entering the Toll Road. Creepy and reassuring at the same time.
I saw this thing was going to collide with a snow maker. Whatever happens, be prepared as you can and stay safe.
ComEd from IL is sending 700 employees to help out with the aftermath.
It's not just utility trucks. My step-son is driving to the east coast to get supplies there along with many co-workers that will be sent to the area.
Life is like a snowstorm...you'll meet a lot of flakes
I think it is wonderful how the utilities help each other out like this.
The one good thing about a hurricane is that you know it is coming and have time to get prepared for it. Not like a tornado that just happens so fast!

I heard on the news that there are many of these utility companies are headed our way. It's sure great to have time to be prepared and that everyone seems to want to help those in the storm's path.
DH is working in N.E. PA and he said utility workers from several states are on the way there.
I just saw on the local news that the Ar. Red Cross is packing up to head to the East Coast.
Prayers to all in the path of this monster!!!
YES, I'm from the south
YES, I wear shoes
Alabama Power trucks are on the way, as well as from other Southern States. Please be safe everyone...I will be praying for each and everyone of you...K
