I felt like that here today,as well.  It was a lovely day, but in the late afternoon, everyone in my neighborhood started putting all outdoor furnishings, pots, etc, into their garages. 

the calm before the storm?

@Enufstuff 

I wish all of you closer to the coast the best possible outcome with minimal damage & injuries.  I'm in Spfld. & I think most of the State is in the path except I think the Northern Bershires area.  

 

You know, sometimes in times such as this, is when we see people at their best .. pulling together & helping each other out when possible.  I hope this is the case during this storm as well.  Prayers for everyone.

@sceniccoast  Thank you and I hope that your area is not badly hit and you stay safe. The most recent reports have downgraded the storm for us north of Boston. I hope that it does not cause a lot of damage elswhere.

@JaneMarple  and everyone in the path of the storm, please stay safe and, hopefully, the path will change a bit and not be so bad.

 

Thoughts and prayers are with you.

 

Remember that this too shall pass.

 

Stay strong!

As a resident of the State, I strongly urge no travelling in Boston.  The flooding can be an issue in a very short period of time.

@Enufstuff  That's why they say to stay off the roads and stay home, they're not fooling. After a hurricane, I've seen sparking and dancing live wires on the roads that were brought down by fallen trees and high winds.

During S Florida hurricanes, first responders do not respond to any calls once winds reach 35 mph. They advise this in advance of the storm. They will not risk their own lives.

Also,  they won't respond to desperate people who refused to leave their homes after they were told to evacuate (coastal residents in an evacuation zone).  You're basically on your own.
