Well... Within the last night they changed it from being a TS when it hits here, to a Cat 1. I'm expecting when it hits to get the strong winds (at least that is the side of the line we are on, and so because were on the west side of her when she hits, they're saying were going to get strong winds of hurricane force)

Last night I think everyone started taking it seriously when the Governor declared a state of emergency for NH. I grabbed some essentials from Wal-Mart, but they are out of them today as well as water. Good to see that people are stocking up on supplies around here and preparing to take her seriously... but sad to see some people still think it is a big joke.

She seems to be a smart storm, staying closer to the water than going inland. I have to agree with what Random Choas has said about the badly disrupted eye and the appearance of her on radar. She is still very powerful even though she is a Cat 1 and very large. I'm curious to see what she will do later tonight.

On a side note -- I'll be around to post as much as I can but if the power goes out, or I'm called to assist (Since I have disaster training for these sorts of things, and am trained as a first responder) than I will not be around much -- I have my phone, so will try to report conditions as she hits in NH from my phone.
