We're starting to feel Sandy's winds here in RI. We've been sleeping in the motorhome the past few weeks as we're remodeling the inside of the house and it's really not in liveable condition - although its close (finally!). Early this morning, around 7/8am I could hear the wind starting to come through the trees along with some minor pelting rain - we're just now starting to get some gusts that we can feel in the motorhome.
Here's where we currently are in relation to the coast (marker A).
The house here is about 3 blocks from the bay and the winds are starting to pick up. We have the motorhome tucked up as close to the house as we can get, 4x4 plywood pads under the tires and jacks. We've got about 3/4 of a tank of fuel in case we need to run the generator for the motorhome and/or items in the house.
We're hanging out in the motorhome for now, watching the news and making some lunch. We'll likely have to put the antenna down soon and rely on webcast news once we do, as there's no cable TV/Internet connection at the house. After lunch, I'll be heading back in the house to do some more painting, cleaning, etc ...
And yes, if the winds get too bad while we're in the motorhome and there's too much rockin', we'll be certain to head into the house.
