][urricane Sandy

Post#1 » Fri Oct 26, 2012 9:22 pm

Hey there everyone. I just wanted to send out a quick note and let you all know that CM may be in line for hurricane this weekend. Hurricane Sandy is her name. At best it's going to pass and land a little north of us. Hopefully we'll just get some wind and rain. At worst we could get a direct hit. I personally don't think that will happen but you can never really predict these devils. The big concern this time around is that the hurricane could be running into a Nor 'Easter which would be a pretty nasty mixture. So I'm posting this to let everyone know that there's a fairly strong chance that I'm going to be without power at some point between this coming Sunday & Monday.

Should that happen your turns will be safe in the cloud until I can get the Troll back online and chewing up RST's again. So no worries. Ok I'm gonna go have a beer. Have a great weekend everyone!
Regards,
][avok

It's official. Power is out and the troll is down. I'll update as soon as I have something to report.

So not much point in me checking to see if the Fall Festival is going to get another turn in tonight....

I hope you're OK ][avok, and any of our CM community in Sandy's way. We're getting some crap weather up here which I think is the system that's supposed to meet up with Sandy to create the Frankenstorm....

Power is restored. Not sure for how long guess we'll have to wait and see. I brought the troll online and processed a batch of turns. We'll keep going as long as we can.

All is well so far. Just woke up, house is fine, no tree's down, power still on... Looks like the storm hasn't hit land yet. I may be north of us by now which would be a good thing for me. I almost wish the power would go off, then I wouldn't have to work from home. :)
