I hope people are preparing as this storm is predicted to bring up to a foot a snow in some areas. What tips do you have for people who still don't have electricity and/or heat?

They need to find shelter with friends, family or last resort a public shelter....this is awful as so many are still without power and there is the potential for those restored to lose power again.

Many trees that didn't come down are compromised and wind, rain or heavy snow can now do them in.

Agree with Kate. If they are still without power they need to either find shelter with friends or family, or go to a public shelter.

That said, I'm not sure that many more trees will come down. The ones that are compromised would be the ones with currently downed trees leaning on them. Branches, however, could fall if they have a lot of snow or ice collect on them.

That's a different story! I was referring to healthy trees that had no visible damage after Sandy.

My friend has one right in front that was perfectly healthy before Sandy and trying to get a tree cutter now is next to impossible...hope it stays put until she can get it cut down.

How tall is it? Too tall to rope and stake on all four sides to tall to at least keep it upright until it can be removed? Just a suggestion.

Well, the Weather Channel is, but it isn't being recognized by anyone else, especially the National Weather Service, which provides the Weather Channel with weather data.
