Are you ready for the Big Storm?  Latest weather report predicts it will hit in my area from about 10am.  Everybody battening down the hatches or whatever it is you do yourself.  Sensibly advising making sure you have torches/flashlights, candles etc if you loose power.  In my case, if that happens, i could be sans computer, and light of course.  Hopefully it won't affect us too badly; i'm only really concerned about my satellite dish but there aren't trees close enough to fall on it.  Blowing debris could be a problem.  i'll just have to keep my fingers crossed.  If the local repeater stations/masts are affected, that will be a problem for many more people...  During the day, it's not such a bother - if you can sit somewhere near a window to read - but at night, no TV to watch and not really enough light to read.  i do have a radio/CD player but i'm not sure if i have batteries for it, as it is usually plugged into the electric.  If i still have power, i can watch DVDs, until the internet is back online.  We shall see.Collapse )
