8:19 PM. Another Hurricane Update, or Hurri-Up. Now things are really percolating here in Central Jersey. Rain is coming down in buckets, and the wind is moving it across the road in waves. I didn’t hear my sump pump for a while there and was getting worried, but luckily, it just kicked in. My basement has flooded many times through the years and it can cause problems if your washer and dryer get soaked, so this time my son and his friends helped me lift them up off the floor and onto thick bricks.

I unplugged the treadmill and once the last load of laundry is done (got everything washed and dried in case the power goes out), I’ll unplug the dryer too. Got the cell phones and laptops charged up, and dug out an old DVD player that runs on batteries. Bought a bag of ice to cool drinks in case the power goes out, lots of snacks and candles.

Nothing else we need to do to get ready. We’ll watch the Weather Channel and News 12 New Jersey for the latest information. Gonna go hunker down now. More updates later.

    ‘Preciate your prayers, Debbie – it does sound like a tornado out there now. My basement is flooded, which I expected, but then I heard something banging around down there. The water in the basement is so high it had dislodged boxes and things were clunking into each other. It’s about 2:30 AM now, so will try to sleep now. Blessings to you and your son.
