update as of 6:40pm on news

a estimated TEN MILLION will lose power as it sweeps several states...

videos of water in bathtubs SLOSHING in HIGH rises in new york where buildings are visably swaying on videos in winds of 120mph...

manhattan and new york city now with water into streets ...and high tide isnt until midnight yet...

a huge 10 ton crane used in building high rises dangles off the
top of a new building construction by a thread.

a huge ship the USS BOUNTY the famous ship in the movie MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY...trying to battle the seas almost made it into closer harbors when it finally sank in 18ft + waves...massive rescue for survivors ...going on even in this by helicopters battling the winds...14 rescued two still missing one of them the capt....this is in north carolina....this is the massive beautiful ship that resembles the CONSTITUTION...

they were at sail because ships are actually safer at sail then anchored at shore...

worries of the statue of liberty rise...

Darn right I didn't sign up for this hurricane stuff!
Really tho, not so bad for us yet. Sustained winds are at around 30mph, gusts 45-50. From what I understand it is supposed to get worse at around 9pm.

Heck i'm just thankful we're not getting SNOW.

Sorry Tess, geez sounds like you're getting worse winds than we are. WTH??

I agree with Tess..yous that chose to live in hurricane country can keep it to yourselves ! lol

Hang in there illusive. Fingers n toes still crossed that we get thru without losing power.

To anyone else out there dealing with Sandy,
Be safe

Edit:
Ya know Tess, you told me to be careful being in the path of Sandy... you had a bad feeling about this one. Maybe that bad feeling was a little closer to home than you thought? frown
YOU stay safe and be careful. Since you didn't have a warning like we did, I guess you didn't have time to tie things down and make sure everything was buttoned up tight? *sigh

POURING here too. Coming down in buckets..and same here supposed to rain til Wed with T storms.
Supposed to let up Wed tho and maybe be half way decent for trick or treating.
So what did you hear about Wed being the worst for us?? That's not what I hear.

What are good tips for keeping your birds warm when the power goes out and the person has no generator? Not sure what the temp is over there but was just curious how to protect them from drafts.

Keep them covered and place a couple of those hand/foot warmers under the bottom grate. Or a hot water bottle if you have a way to heat water...under the grate. Never of course put these things where the bird(s) can reach them.

A smaller cage with less area to keep heated would probably be easier to keep warm.
