i just read this and thought i'd share this in case some of you who are in direct storm path haven't seen this already....the weather channel is broadcasting live on youtube, here is the link....they decided to do this in case people lose power they could still access accurate current weather information via cell phones....please make sure your cell phones are charged and if you have a vehicle, your vehicle charger is handy....

we are still accepting halloween ads, i just saw on a news article photo someone wrote on plywood covering their windows 'go away sandy we want candy'.....our ads in disguise is STILL set for october 31---BUT, if you lose power due to the storm you will allowed to post fake ads upon your return....and if major city's are without power we will delay the contest start....

i hope everyone who is within the storm's path is and remains safe!!!
