OMG!!!!! Wind & rain. Will residents survive??? Will there be school??? If so, will children walk to school or be driven (kids would love to jump in the puddles, as we did)??? Is there a run on milk & bread so people can eat???? What happens when power goes out??? No TV, video games, etc. Parents will have to spend time with their kids(heaven forbid, family time together). Weather, for the most part is still good this time of year, not real humid. Have a cook out. If you have a "fire pit" good time to sit around, roast marshmallows, tell stories. It actually could be a good time. For generations people lived without power and survived very well. Maybe we should try to enjoy a little different lifestyle, if needed, without all the complaining. I'm ready to enjoy. Hint: those little outdoor solar lights work real well indoors, also. Charge them during the day, outdoors, bring them in at night.
