    Anyone in the league going to be affected by this?

    I live in Cranford, NJ, so I'm right in the storms path. In fact, Cranford, NJ is considered Venice of New Jersey due to the nature of the area. We got crushed during hurricane Irene, and the storm surge is expected to be the same, if not worse. They are already stating the pressure system will hit records lows, coupled with the full moon, things look bad.

    I live in Southern Maryland, near the shore, we are getting hit head on. People are sand bagging, putting up crates, and all kinds of crazy stuff. I went to buy a bottle of water while getting gas today and there was none.

    You too. I think people are over reacting down here. I hope so anyways. Hopefully the Eye of the storm catches us, because we are dead in the center.

    I am in Richmond, VA. They are calling for 5-8inches of rain with 30-50mph winds gusts 75+mph. So with that said I will most likely be without power Tues-Fri??

    Hokie Effect who provides you power?

    Just wondering because the company I work for in Ohio serves Richmond as well and the way they are talking it could be a week or 2 before we get some people back on if it's like any other major event. We are sending our linemen down there today and tomorrow to help with the storm..

    My town (Cranford, NJ) was very fortunate that Sandy did not have the same devestation as Irene. However, down the shore parts was much, much worse. My family in Brick, NJ lost partial first floors and all cars. If I can find gas, I am going to try and make it down to rescue them and assist in any cleanup efforts.

    Just a heads-up as I may be gone for quite some time and there is no cellular service down there.
