The US Airforce has sent most of the fighters from the East Coast to
Indiana, what are you doing to prepare for the storm of the next 2 days?
Ready, Set, DISCUSS!

I'm probably the only one on the list from Southeastern Virginia (Norfolk/Virginia Beach Area.) It's expected to be here tomorrow morning early.

Storm prep is mostly moving equipment from low lying areas that are likely to get flooded. I'm sure the cellular companies are on standby with generators for the sites that don't have permanant ones, if the fiber network holds up.

In past storms our region has lost much of the metro fiber business network from Cox due to power outages and lack of optical bypass switches and other issues.

Previous storms that looked like they were bad were nothing.

Others that looked like nothing caused huge amounts of outages.

Time will tell!
