Well, hopefully this will restore some faith. Also from Jersey.




Am I the only weird one that keeps more than a months worth of emergency food in the house? News makes it sound like people are getting pretty desperate.

I saw that on Facebook. I'd use my car charger if my car wasn't destroyed. Inland we were pretty lucky, the coast is where the damage was made for the most part.

I have a couple UPS systems that were replaced from work that I use. I also have some spare mini lead acid batteries I keep around for projects that I could probably rig something together that would last me a couple weeks or so. I've wanted to play with some off grid independent solar systems just for this kind of purpose. I've played with them in grad school. Just hard to justify spending $500 on a panel and equipment when I'm obviously in no type of danger zone.

That storm was a nightmare! I just got power today, went out Monday. I thought my freakin house was going to blow to Kansas, lol. I was watching transformers blow up out my back window, lit up the sky.

I passed a huge military convoy transporting what looked like boxes of MREs and bottled water I-68E. I assume they're on their way up to your direction. House survive? We had to flip our patio table upside down.
