For those with smart phones, Delmarva also has an app. You can report outages via the app, check outage maps, and check on the status of your outage. You know, as long as your phone has power in it!

... and remember, with the right USB connection, you can charge your cell phone from your laptop. Also, as my son reminded me this morning, many of us might still have car chargers that we never think about using anymore.

Good luck all! My thoughts are with you. I just sent the other half to her moms in lower DE for her mom's b-day 3 days ago. They are evacuating Sunday and going to Newark till at least Wed. I have pics of the storm in '62 and that aint pretty. These winds are forecasted to be greater. I hope I'm totally wrong but I think this is going to be a life changer for many. Philly, DE City, and any coastal towns on the DE Bay are really in harms way.
Those with internet, please stay in touch. Here in FL we expect this cr*p, not the NE! Stay safe!

I'm surprised Delaware hasn't declared a state of emergency yet, part of Wilmington did but not the whole state. I think we are the only ones left. Must be a reason though.

I saw someone on Facebook theorizing that they'll wait until the last minute to declare SOE because they can't collect tolls if one is in place. I'd be very disappointed if that were true. It's unnerving to see the reporters on TV incredulous that more prep isn't being done in Rehoboth.

We're going to be sticking it out here in Newark. We considered going to my parents' house in northern Virginia, but they're not going to fare significantly better there, so we may as well stay. I cleaned up all the kids' toys from the yard, did all the laundry yesterday, and stocked up on water (no bottled water left at the Safeway in Glasgow as of noon) and non-perishables. Here we go . . . stay safe everyone!

I don't know why people keep saying it's going to hit Delaware. Both the Euro and USA models have landfall somewhere in NJ.

They now say landfall is going to hit New Jersey. We are all prepared and stocked up here. Everything is secured. I won't have to go to work, but my husband must. I'm not happy about it, but it's part of his job.

I hope everyone stays safe! I don't really have anywhere to retreat given my parents live in a flood zone outside Parksley, VA and my sister lives in Middletown. Therefore, I'll be here waiting out the storm.

With Hurricane Sandy making its way toward Delmarva, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell has declared a limited state of emergency for the state and a mandatory evacuation for Delaware coastal communities starting at 8 p.m.

SANDY: Markell declares limited DE state of emergency, evacuations | The Daily Times | delmarvanow.com

As far as the discussion of where the storm will actually land, the wind field is several hundred miles wide. Even if it does hit central Jersey, which seems likely, the impact we feel here will be significant.
