Every home should have a generator .. Just saying ...


Welp. Time to cut down all the trees around my house.


You must be joking. That won't help. Let's all cut down all of our trees and then what will we breathe?


How much can you do to get ready? Really. Have 1000s of men waiting on the off chance the storm will be devastating.


I hope the word gets out to Con Edison so they are a bit more prepared than they were last time.
