  1. Thinking of all my peeps in the path of Florence and for those in Andover, North Andover and Lawrence Mass, whose area was hit by many natural gas explosions last night. Crazy day!!

    Yeah, it's a tough day. I was worried about B and BostonFNP, but they both checked in. My kid came home from the Carolina Coast and my AN friends there are checking in so far. Stay safe, everyone!!!

    The explosions are awful! I am about 35 minutes South East of them. There are several families that my kids go to overnight camp with who live in Andover. We are still waiting for confirmation that their houses are OK.

    Sending prayers for those in the path of Florence.

    I cannot believe there has been only one fatality, a chimney fell on the car of an 18-year-old...gah

    Thinking of you all on the East coast! Stay safe!! My mom was supposed to travel to Myrtle Beach with her sister... but they have wisely postponed.

    I saw a snippet on Facebook saying that if you lose cell service, you can change your outgoing message to something saying that you are safe so that friends/family can check when they cannot get a hold of you. I am not sure that is correct, but if it is- it's a great tip!

    Some of my family members in NC decided not to follow evac orders so we're over here anxiously awaiting this storm to be over. I'm hoping for no more casualties from this storm!

    I have to admit, I find it frustrating that those who chose to ride it out, when they were expected/ordered to evac, now need to risk EMS so they can be rescued.

    I could not agree more! Many of us were trying to convince them to evacuate...even offered to pay for them to come visit in the midwest. They wouldn't budge.

    I'm late to this thread, but newly living on the North Shore. I'm fine and unaffected, but have some friends that were. It is crazy.
