Bracing for Hurricane Sandy

We are as prepared as we can be for Hurricane Sandy -- leaves cleared, patio furniture stowed, buckets of water filled in case we lose water. And now we got a phone call a short while ago from PPL with the dire warning to prepare for a possible week without power. 

Schools in Elizabethtown are closed tomorrow and Tuesday, and the school district's Facebook page says officials will monitor the situation and make a decision at Wednesday. Donegal School District is also closed. 

Gov. Corbett has already declared a state of emergency for Pennsylvania. reported that Corbett said at a news conference this afternoon that residents should "be prepared to stay in your homes for an extended period of time, a few days and possibly without power, without water."

I don't have much more to report right now, but as soon as I do, and assuming I have power, I'll update what I can as soon as possible.
