Are you along the coast?
I heard quite a few places are out of power.
My husband was down in Wickford helping a friend who owns a building.
He came back drenched. I asked him to get pics but he didn't want his phone getting wet.
At least my baby is a bit older this time - last year sucked because she was only 3 months old when we had last years storm.

I wish I could sleep too
I even tried Sleepytime Tea.
But, the wind and house shaking won't stop, and my phone keeps ringing and texts keep coming in from family and friends. Of course I initiated some of those checking on people. Our power keeps blinking off for a few moments, so waiting for it to go down. My brother is having a fit because shingles blew off his house and hit his car. Boss called to say she does not have power and I might need to post the closed notice on the news site tomorrow, because I'm one of the few left with power. My parents don't have power. etc. etc. But all-in-all, every one of our issues can't compare to what is going on in NJ and NY. I feel so much for what those people must be going through... that it has curbed my anxiety here.

Fill water jugs to drink,fill your bathtub to flush the toilet using a bucket to dip it out.
Grab any sleeping bags you have,comforters or whatever,so you can coccoon up grandma if the power goes out.
Drag her bed into a hallway near the center of the house and close the doors to all the rooms in case the windows blow out.
This isn't such a big deal unless you keep panicking like it sounds you are from your post.
