Upper Deerfield Twp, NJ (Cumberland County)
Oh my, here comes Sandy. We will be hunkered down here in southern New Jersey awaiting what is being termed an historic storm.
We thought about hitching up but where would we go? North will be getting snow. South would be heading into the storm. West, again heavy rains/snow. East? That would be the Atlantic Ocean. We are about 30 miles inland from Atlantic City.
I just heard that Wilmington, DE is being evacuated. Wilmington is about 25 miles northwest right across the Delaware River. Storm surges are predicted to be 4-8 feet in Atlantic City. Not sure about Wilmington but the storm will be moving up the Delaware River.
Since we are in the northeast, I am glad to are here at the daughter's house. We both have generators. We will keep the fresh water tank filled in the rig. Her stove is electric but of course we have our gas stove in the fiver.
Plenty of food. Good thing because the grocery stores are no doubt about empty now. From the maps I've seen, we are in the middle of the storms track.
Hold on tight!
