Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your neighbors!

Looks like it's gonna be a big one. My little brother is stationed at a naval base in new england. He's on watch tonight. I bet that'll be fun for him!

Thank you, the weather is getting progressively worse by the hour. Land fall is going to be about 100 miles to the south of me in Atlantic City N.J. but we are still starting to get out but kicked.

I hope everything works out for the best for you coastal folks. I know what you mean about not riding. We are under a blizzard warning until weds because of the hurricane.

I live in Florida in Daytona Beach. This storm that the northeast is getting is just an afternoon thunder storm for us. 80 MPH wind is a good stiff breeze down here.
Just "hunker down" as we like to say and enjoy the ride.
Stay inside, flying debris is leading cause of death in these storms. Be safe! Good luck!
My brother lives in Allentown PA. Need to call him later.

Not riding here in northeastern Ct. either. My bike is wrapped up and sleeping in the pole barn. Our boat is another matter. Had it hauled out on Thursday but the storm surge may well be enough to knock it off the stands and.........umm deposit it somewhere else. Stay safe. Robert

I was not able to ride mine either.
I am kind of central to eastern part of VA.
It is getting stronger wind wise and rain wise.
I hope everyone stays safe. We can ride another day.

Well I made it in to work today. We went from rain yesterday evening to a wet heavy snow that is a little over a foot and it is still falling. But I say once the sun comes out it will change the that.

Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.
