I'm not putting up a map. You can't avoid the maps. The one with the track. The one with the potential other tracks. The one with the Jet Streak overlaying the Jet Stream. The one with the NYC evacuation areas. The ones from the other states. Politics is less important in times of disaster (unless you're FEMA under Brownie and Shrub) and having heard both Fat Boy Slim and Crooked Corbett, along with Mayors Nutter and Bloomberg, they're all doing all the right things for a storm that will affect 65 million people.
There are some glitches: buses loaded with no destination yet set. The people living in the tunnels near the subways due to close tomorrow. But for the most part, even the Republicans are doing the right things in terms of staging people, preemptively ordering suspension of rules, and enforcement of others, and properly preparing. Here in PA, the Crook did right by allowing suspension of the rules for departments which normally need clearances. Thus, if PennDOT needs to move heavy equipment on roads it normally wouldn't allow, they can just say yes without a paperwork nightmare. In addition, he noted that anyone gouging on essentials would be prosecuted.
If you're in the path, the Red Cross has a good checklist here. They neglected one thing for those people who will be in the path, but likely able to shelter in place: fill your bathtub with water. If the water treatment plant loses power and you lose water, you'll have what to drink (especially if you read the Red Cross list) - but you'll need the bathtub water to flush your toilets.
I was in New Jersey during Hurricane Floyd in 1999, and it wasn't great. This will be much worse. So, I'm doing everything I can to prepare...I hope you are, too, if you're in the path.
