According to the weather reports I've been hearing and reading, Northern Virginia, where I live, will be slammed by Frankenstorm. Forecasts project Tuesday as the worst day, but heavy rains and high winds will likely arrive earlier.
Models differ because such storms have a way of rapidly changing course.
The following model appeared on the web a few days ago:
I've spent the past two days battening down the hatches here at the AOW household. My biggest concern is keeping the sump pump running if the power goes off for an extended period of time. Bailing out the cellar of this old house is a 24/7 job without the sump pump up and running!
Loss of power also means the inability to access the Internet. If I fall silent in the blogosphere, you'll know why.
I do have several posts queued up. Also, Sam and Warren are not in the bull's eye for this storm, so they will be managing this web site if I'm absent.
Today is Mr. AOW's birthday. We're spending a quiet day hunkered down here at home. No dinner at Outback until the worst of Frankenstorm passes!
