Tucker's Mom,

What restaurant? I love Cape May. Stay safe and dry.
******
There is a local reporter (DC) stationed in Cape May and she said 'someone just said that The Cove restaurant is gone:"
It's about as south as you can get in NJ. 10 feet outside the door is the Delaware River.
I hope it's not truly gone, but it's in a really, really bad spot.
There is a more local pier in Delaware that is gone. Already.
OMG, the pier in Kill Devil Hills is gone too.

Thanks everyone for your sweet concern. Just heavy rain right now but I have my camera ready to catch anything more. Stocked up on snacks, everyone is safely home for the next two days probably.

Hubs brought a generator home. Such a good boy.

We're smack in the middle of this in Northern Delaware. Hunkered down with food and water. www.delawareonline.com if anyone wants info.

No we are not baking bread. No we are not pondering our pool cover. No we are not having fun by making the children fold clothes.

Just wondering what KK is having the help do if she's doing all this cooking and laundry.

I heard this on our news too Tucker's Mom. What concerns me is the folks who refuse to leave their seaside homes. Gov. Christie just said on the news that those on the Barrier Islands may now not even be able to leave :(

This may prove to be quite a challenge for Kate. It may take some time but she will come up with a way to blame Jon for Frankenstorm. Watch for it.

My Norfolk kid didn't sustain any flooding or wind damage...thank God.
Sending positive thoughts and prayers to all of you in the path of this storm.
(I feel guilty, it's 60 degrees in Texas, sunny and no wind..wish we could send it your way) :(

As bad as this is, I am so thankful we have technology that gives everyone plenty of time to prepare for this storm.

Audible Click said...

Having gone through several catastrophic hurricanes, I empathize with the people in the path of the storm. I know it's very difficult to do but try to rest or, at least, put your feet up. I am a pacer during a bad storm and it drives hubby nuts. When the storm has passed I'm so worn out but we have to do all of the post storm clean up and deal with the insurance company. Please keep this in mind and rest a bit.

UPDATE: Jersey shore expert Jen A. Miller is saying that The Cove is still there, the police officers in the region must have been mistaken when they told locals it had been destroyed.

I live on Long Island, and so far we are getting rain(not heavy) and the wind is beginning to pick up. I still have power, although some areas around me have outages. I very rarely lose power--never lost it during Irene. Just hope that good luck continues.

Hope everyone in the storms path stays safe and sound.

As far as Kate's stupid diary--I really have no words. It's just another twittersode. Suprised she hasn't named a sponsor this time.

SeeSaw said...

Hi Eastcoasters and anyone else in the path of the storm. I'm at work in Reading, PA (Berks) today. Even though we're right next to the river our office still hasn't closed. We're a 24/7 business so it's hard to send employees home. Right now the river (Schuylkill) doesn't look too high but I'm guessing it will only get worse.
Hope you're all staying safe and dry. We spent the weekend preparing so I'm not too upset.
Watching the weather channel and just sick to see my favorite NJ shore points getting destroyed.
Hugs to everyone right on the coast!

Heard the boardwalk at Atlantic City is gone :(
------------------------
No. Not yet anyway. A portion of it has collapsed. Considering the surge will only get worse going into the evening, combined with the full moon high tide, Jersey Shore will certainly be a mess.

NJGal51 said...

There is a picture of the Ocean Grove fishing pier being posted on various news sites. This is a picture from last year (Irene). The photographer is trying to have it taken down as people are copying it and claiming it as their own. One of Kate's twitches posted it last night and I tweeted her telling her to give the photographer credit and it was not her picture. Kate commented that it was a beautiful pix or some such nonsense still waiting to hear from my brother who is apparently being pounded on the Jersey shore.

Lynn said...

Here in Chester County, PA so far just heavy rains and winds. All state offices, local universities and local schools are closed. Gov. Corbett wants everyone to stay off the roads. Supposed to worsen tonight. Landfall is predicted for Cape May around midnight. Hope everyone stays safe!

I know we needed a new thread anyway, but it is just so kind of you to create a thread topic for storm discussion. I really like how you take the temperature (so to speak) of what is on the minds of your posters and you adjust to accomodate US, within your standards of decency.

This is just really nice of you. I know some drive bys will snark on it, but this storm is impacting a lot of us. Thanks for this.

Much of the city is under water, the casinos were evacuated and parts of the northern section of the boardwalk collapsed -- about 40 foot sections, but the boardwalk isn't gone. It's almost five miles long.

Anita said...

Please pray for the missing two crew members of the HMS Bounty. This beautiful ship went down 90 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras. Seventeen crew members were aboard and fourteen have been rescued at last report. My Dh and I crew on a tall ship (the Madeline, much smaller) and we understand the dedication and love this crew had for their beautiful ship. We went aboard Bounty and spoke with her crew the last time she was in our little town. The beautiful Bounty and her crew will be missed on the Great Lakes next summer.

Dwindle - your avatar made me laugh.

The other day someone posted about finding their son's busy box in the garage (?). Thank you as it makes me feel like less of a hoarder than I am. I was digging in the basement yesterday as I remembered we had purchased a battery operated lantern for my daughter to take to Girl Scout camp. Found it in a bin along with all of her other scouting stuff. Darn thing still works and it's been in that box for about 12 years! I need to clean the basement. It's practically an archeological dig at this point.

I am still waiting for the dead chicken crap she is bound to spew.

Hi SeeSaw, I was wondering if you would check in. Be careful going home. I work at a school which was closed. Daughter works in the city not far from the river too, she was let go at 12:00 and no work tomorrow. I guess we will be getting the worst of it around 2:00 AM. Prayers that nobody's roof blows off.

Sweet Tart said...

My sister and niece are in Norfolk - last we spoke was over the week-end and she said she had plenty of batteries, water and food supplies. I sure hope there is not severe flooding or prolonged power outages, as my niece is autistic and has special needs.

I am praying for all in the path of this storm. Someone on another site posted a pic of Hurricane Andrew, then one of Hurricane Sandy. Sandy looks to be about twice the size of Andrew. Scary stuff.

I'm sorry for the Gosselin kids if they are with their mom during this storm. She will be worse than useless. I would feel much better for them if they could be with their father.

I just commented on the other thread about the Kardashians but I'll leave it there!

About purebreds and rescues, we have had both and I have loved them all! Right now I have a beagle that looks like he should be on a cover of a calendar. I also have a rescue that I got about 4 months ago. Actually you can call him a rescue or adopted but I call him family!! My new baby has his little bad habits ( playfully likes to bite) but when I think about him living in the streets alone at 3, 4, 5 months old I forgive him!

I don't get angry when people don't want to rescue dogs, I get angry when they ABUSE them ! Are you listening Kate???

STAY SAFE, DRY AND WARM EAST COAST!!

I have it on very good authority (wink) that the last hurricane, the soldiers were ordered by their CO to get indoors. To a man, even those on rest time, they suited up and disobeyed orders. There were 5 of them out there all night. Said one guard to someone I love "I lost a buddy in Iraq. He'll come down from heaven and kick my ass if I abandon my post for some rain." But more than that, they knew that an event like this is the perfect time for someone to deface the Tomb. And they wont have it.

PatK said...

I'm just patiently waiting to see if Kate loses power at all. She's probably at the point where she will bitch if she doesn't. We can take comfort in knowing the family is super clean, though.

I'm tired of the rain here in Ohio. This is the fourth day, and I know we're in for a few more days of this. Sending out my thoughts to all of you taking harder hits from Sandy. Be well and stay safe.

FrankenKate and het Hurricane Sandy Diaries - ah, images. She probably does have her kids since their father has a JOB. After they fold their laundry, maybe she will empty all the baskets in the basement and they can reclean it.

For all of you real people in the storm path - stay safe and dry, especially safe.

----------------------
Hi Buttercup~
I'm in northern DE too...heard on the news a bit ago that the wind was so bad in Middletown that the trees were almost horizontal to the ground.
They are now saying landfall between 6 pm and 8 pm. somewhere in the southern NJ/Delmarva area.

Because of the low pressure of the hurricane (943 mb), this is supposed to be the strongest storm to come north of Cape Hatteras since 1938 so any of us under the age of 74 have never seen a storm of this intensity come to this area. Apparently, the low pressure (943 mb.) pushes the pressure from way down deep in the ocean up to the surface and causes the huge surges. Then to boot, it's making landfall at high tide in NJ and during a full moon.

They are already having to go out and rescue people out in the Barrier Islands who didn't evacuate in time.

Continues to rain here and wind picking up and getting occasional strong wind gusts. Just waiting for the power to go out. Every minute it stays on, I consider myself lucky.

Hi dee!!! Thanks for the info - this is definitely a scary storm. We evacuated my parents out of Rehoboth on Sunday (though we did go to the Sea Witch festival on Saturday so my 3 year old could have some fun!).

We are former Long Islander's and remember how bad Hurricane Gloria was in the 80's. We were without power for 2 weeks and it was horrible.

We're as prepared as we can be and believe it or not I'm telecommuting today.

The trees are being whipped around and even though my house is on a hill there is a substantial amount of water pooling at the bottom of our yard.

I too am counting every hour we have the power on as a blessing.

Stay safe everyone!

PS - if Milo is even wondering now about Shoka you know that it's looking dim for his prospects. I wish KK would just tell everyone either way what's happened to him. But she's KK so I don't count on it.

May God bless all the victims of this horrible storm. Saw a picture of heavy snow falling in West Virginia. Terrible news about the HMS Bounty. That ocean looks rougher than I've ever seen.

Berks - thanks for the shout out! You stay safe, too.
It's raining cats and dogs but customers keep coming in to our office. Go home people (haha).
Roads around here flood pretty easily (Front, 2nd, Riverfront for those who know the area). I'd really like to go home and check on the doggy soon.

dee3 said...

Apparently, the hurricane increased speed (128 mph) and is now only 100 miles offshore and predicted to make landfall between late afternoon and early evening (they are saying around 5-6 pm.) which would make it a couple of hours from now.

The good news is that it may miss high tide and depending on the exact location of landfall.....the rotation of the hurricane may cause the winds to be coming out of the northwest, which could help to push the water offshore a bit.

I can't believe we still have power.

Buttercup~we live in a neighborhood where the lots were landscaped to promote drainage so everyone is sort of on their own little hill, so to speak. Simply drains by gravity. We have never had water come into the house....though can get large puddles/little lakes on property and end of driveway (we have a few already now).

DE has reportedly already gotten 4-6" of rain.
Glenn (Hurricane) Shwartz on CBS out of Philly says the rain will be coming down almost horizontally for about 4 hours straight once it makes landfall.

AuntieAnn said...

To all in the path of the hurricane please know that if you lose contact with us here for however long, we are still holding onto you tightly in cyberspace. Stay safe!

NJGal51 said...

I just got a text from my brother (Jersey shore coastal town not inland) and he said it's too dangerous to go out right now. I had asked him about the boardwalk.

aggiemom09121416 said...

I can't imagine FIFTY FIVE chickens. My grandparents had about 10-12 chickens, and their coop was probably 16x16(including their 'house').
What in the hell does she need with 55 chickens???

I can't imagine the mess that has to be cleaned up. gross. If each chicken laid one egg a day, what do you do with all those eggs???
And feeding that many is going to run into some cash.
(too bad you can't make coffee and bella bars out of eggs or she'd have it made)

NJGal51 said...

Well you know that Kate is reading here because she's now mentioned Shoka and the chickens. I'm guessing that Kate will be really pissed if she doesn't lose power because she'll have nothing to complain and wail about.

Parent In Lancaster County said...

I think she still has doubts that Shoka is there.

------------------

I don't think it's so much that she still have doubts (wouldn't her bff Kate have told her in a private phone call that Shoka is still there?) as much as it is proving to the non-fans that, "see, I told you that Shoka is fine." She needs Kate to confirm it.

SeeSaw said...

55 chickens??? WTH?
I googled to see how much chickens lay. Sources say figure on 2 eggs for every 3 chickens every day. So that's 3 dozen eggs A DAY. 4 eggs per person in the house per day.
Is she going to set up a farm stand? Really, Kate? Someone tell me she's making this up because that's just ridiculous.

aggiemom09121416 said...

Parent..
I read an article last week that said CC was the one sponsoring her R&R marathons. And since she was FIRED, no more sponsorship. (insert sobbing)

I don't think Kate ever addressed her not going to the marathon, just like she didn't address the CC firing.
With the hurricane happening, it was wise for her to stay close, either with the kids or without, in case something happens. I don't know what kind of help she would be, but she sure couldn't help if she was in CA.

Terrri said...

I find it rather funny that Kate has no qualms about posting pics of her kids on twitter or their singing voices, but she WILL NOT post a pic of Shoka. I guess the dog gets more privacy than her kids do. To me that is just shameful and sick. Or, as we all have suspected for some time, Shoka is no longer with them. Either way you look at it, Kate is one sick individual.

SeeSaw said...

Aggiemom - Hurricane Sandy has stolen my brain. What bible class? Weren't we taking a trip together? Was there bible study involved? I thought we in Las Vegas. Oh, dear, I haven't done any homework either.

aggiemom09121416 said...

Someone on twitter asked her about the dog's reaction to the weather...she said he is just fine, has new toys and treats.

Terri 74,,
you are right, she will post pics of her kids, but not the dog. Why? I bet the dog isn't there. I hope he isn't.

Another poster said Kate is welcome in Texas. I say A BIG HELL NO TO THAT.

She has 55 Chickens but remember she uses only the whites of the eggs, not the yolks, so she really only has 27 and 1/2 chickens. me-ow.

Administrator, can her Sandy tweets be shown at the top of this new thread? They make less sense than usual. Think the stress is getting to her. How are they going to fold laundry and watch tv AFTER the power goes out? Did I misread this? oh, her generator. Silly me.

Is she already in her boxOwine?

Have a friend living in Nags Head, North Carolina and the pics that she has posted are disasterous. Why can't the news channels show the 'after' pics so those in the path know it's not all about having a hurricane party or a destination rubberneck situation.

The Bounty, the beautiful tall ship is gone and two of her crew still missing, victims of this deadly hurricane. The brave young men of the Coast Guard are out on this dangerous water doing their jobs. Thank you.

In central North Carolina, we are still getting wind and rain. This is a dangerous storm.

Stay safe, everyone.

So are Kate's marathon days over until she finds another sponsor? You know darn well she's not spending any of HER money for entrance fees/travel. Will she check off marathons from her bucket list and be done with it permanently?

Looks like she'll have to find another sponsor...like you said, she isn't going to spend HER money!

She must have a pretty large place to house 55 chickens. That's a LOT of chickens.
Why does she need so many
We asked about the chickens, she answered. Of course she reads here!
*******************

Nah, by this time Wednesday some of them will be dead 'from the storm' and she'll need gift cards to Ann Taylor coz the children will never have an egg again. That will all make sense to kate.

Shoka is nowhere alive within her vision, with companionship and a roof over his head. She killed him or he was taken away from her. The fact that she refuses to answer even Milo about it is all the proof I need. One thing we have learned about Kate, if she cant come up with a sheeple simple lie, she just ignores it. NEVER shall the truth or a fact be blurted out of that woman.

Someone on twitter asked her about the dog's reaction to the weather...she said he is just fine, has new toys and treats.

Terri 74,,
you are right, she will post pics of her kids, but not the dog. Why? I bet the dog isn't there. I hope he isn't.

Another poster said Kate is welcome in Texas. I say A BIG HELL NO TO THAT.

I hope everyone is still doing well. Our lights flickered for a bit, but we're fine.

Don't forget to check on your elderly neighbors. Please, please, be careful.

Stay safe, and well.

Remona Blue said...

Well, since we're talking about KK....we know that she SAYS she has 55 chickens and that Shoka is inside with her and the kids. We also know that what KK says and what is actually the truth are very often two different things. I don't believe that Shoka is inside (or even on her property) and don't believe she has 55 chickens. Just like last year, when the snow storm demolished all 30 of her trees...all a figment of her attention-seeking imagination!!

When I was little we saw someone wring a chicken's neck, and the poor chicken was running around the yard with no head. We city kids were totally freaked out.lol

Dwindle said...

regarding the demise and plucking/cleaning of the chickens: she might gleefully kill them while making the children watch, but she wont pluck and evicerate them. She lives near Amish country and it's easy peasy to find someone to do it all for you. They'll cut them into pieces parts and package them up for you for the freezer too.

Remona is right, though. Her idea of 55 is probably more like 16. She lies lies lies. And it's a shame if she is denying those kids egg yolks. They are so full of protien and healthy calories that growing children need so badly.

Michael Lohan will testify in a different kind of court on Friday.

That's when Celebrity Boxing Federation promoter Damon Feldman and Michael Lohan, who makes his living by exploiting his troubled daughter, actress Lindsay Lohan, will be televised facing off in the courtroom of "Judge Alex."

Feldman is seeking $5,000 from Lohan for failing to show up for two scheduled boxing matches, one in Florida, the other in Los Angeles.

Who will prevail in this landmark case? Many may wish both could lose. The world waits.

We won't be seeing Octo-Mom in the boxing ring anymore.

Celebrity Boxing CEO Damon Feldman has banned Nadya Suleman from his bouts after she allegedly broke an opponent's hand in a pillow fight in Philadelphia and then failing to show up for another fight in Florida.

The ban means Nadya may have to continue with porn and stripping to put food on the table for her 14 kids.

Weather Report: The storm is going to land at between 5 & 6, Hurrican #1 category. Winds are increasing, now at 90 mph winds.
Movement is faster, 28 MPH
Hurricane will come ashore at Atlantic City.
Wishing you all lots of luck and prayers.
Delware losing power, NJ losing power rapidly,
Waves 20 ft high off of Rehoboth Beach, Del
Waves will increase to higher at high tide.
Good luck NJ, Del and all cities between rivers like Philadelphia.
Get to shelters if you have waited and live in the city of Philly folks, don't keep waiting as things are changing re: Sandy.
Now light some candles folks for everyone especially first responders.
The Absecon Bay and the Atlantic Ocean have met and all of Atlantic City is under water, roads have collapsed due to being built on sand.
This is very serious and roads are being destroyed.
Prayers, enough for Kate Gosselin. Get dressed, be ready to leave your homes from now until this Hurricane has completely passed. Good luck again.

SANDY IS MOVING IN FASTER, I REPEAT, SANDY IS MOVING IN CLOSER.

LaLaLandNoMore said...

What does that Gosselin statement, "They don't know how to help us" really mean?

There are so many twists and turns even still that it is difficult to believe anything out of Kate's twitter. There have been so many embellishments, lies, spins, and crap spilled out to the gullible viewers that all credibility is gone. Remember the story of the boy who cried wolf? Just can't believe anything, can we? Any other con-artist I ever heard about is probably in prison or living in another country by now. Not falling for the 55 chicken story or believing that their dog is even still on the property. Liar, liar pants on fire. Anything goes when you are addicted to seeking attention. Kate enjoys keeping folks hooked in to her scam. If the truth be told, I'd imagine that her family is mortified by her behavior. Thus, they are absent from her life. Can't get along with her, so they get along without her. Sad for the kids, but this is not the first family to experience this situation.

Anonymous said...

I have a very sad memory of chickens that you guys have reminded me of. Thanks!
Anyway when I was very young we were still living in Texas my mom name home with the cutest baby chicks. I remember them being all over the back yard getting bigger and bigger.
One day I went outside and found my mom swinging the chicken by the neck. I started to scream and ran to hide behind the shed! My mom plucked the feathers off and cooked it! Even at 5years old I refused to eat my pet! I think that's when I became an animal lover!

But after hearing all this talk about Kate and a porno movie or wrestling, I think that Kate naked is more horrifying than my poor chicken !!

Seventeen crew members were aboard and fourteen have been rescued at last report. My Dh and I crew on a tall ship (the Madeline, much smaller) and we understand the dedication and love this crew had for their beautiful ship. We went aboard Bounty and spoke with her crew the last time she was in our little town. The beautiful Bounty and her crew will be missed on the Great Lakes next summer.

There is no way that woman has 55 chickens. Chickens lay about a egg a day so that's almost 6 DOZEN eggs a day. No frigging way. I have 6 chickens for my family of 5 and I am left with plenty to give the neighbors.

Thanks, aggiemom09121416, you jogged my memory. Heard that little statement early on in the J & K plus 8 interview time. Of course, everyone wanted to know where was their families? She really gave a "not an answer", don't you think? More questions remain on that one.

Saw a new post on ROL with Kate's mug front and center. Wish her 15 minutes would end. As my little 8 yr. old granddaughter says, "I'm sick of it."

I took Robert's new post to mean something that was old news, yet RO has run with it making it appear current.
I do know that some time back Jon said he was not adverse to the kids filming if an opportunity arose, but things in gosselinland change week to week, day to day.
It couldn't refer to the past few weeks, as the kids were in school and Kate and her makeup buddy were having fun back and forth on twitter alluding to some 'fun'.

And speaking of 'fun', I am getting weary of hearing a 37 yr old mother of 8 talking about fun all the dang time...honey, your days of fun are over, it's the kids turn.

I'm so glad that some of you in the path of this storm are still able to post here. I've been worried about y'all. We kept running to the teachers' lounge on breaks and checking the news to see what was going on. It looks scary. Here, it's been mizzling (more than a mist, less than a drizzle) off and on most of the day, and COLD (well, relatively speaking). We're under a high wind warning, with winds up to 65 MPH expected until 4 PM tomorrow. Hope my poor patched roof holds up. But this is all minor compared to what some of you are experiencing. Lord, hold all in the path of this storm in your sheltering arms. Keep them safe.

I'm in Chester County too. I think schools will be closed Wednesday too. The stream through our townhouses is really flooded. Hey one good thing though..I shoved a bunch of stale rolls in my sink and turned off the garbage disposal which promptly died. I had pictures of having a stinky sink until a plumber could get out here, when, in a few weeks after all the emergencies..not to mention I can't afford a plumber...then I realized it must have overheated. Couldn't find a reset button so I let it cool for an hour..still nothing. So I googled it and realized the reset button is on the bottom YAY found it and reset it. Still only whirred. So I scraped all the goop out and realied a dishrag was stuck in it. Took me 1/2 hour to pull all the pieces out with needle nose pliers, tried again and YAY!!! The lovely sound of the garbage disposer! Can-do-Kate my ass. THAT's Can-DO!

Aggiesmom I read that article that Robert was called a couple of weeks ago by a source. In a way it's all making sense now!

Kate couldn't stop the book but paid lots of money to delay, delay so she could get this project of the ground.

Why do people like Deanna, Mitt, and Dereck Fabulous still want to hitch their wagons to this horrible woman, because they think she is going to stick around.

She went into hiding during the short time the book was out, but yet remains in high spirits!

I can see Kris Jenner helping Kate, they have a lot in common! They both care more about themselves and money then their kids!

PS - if Milo is even wondering now about Shoka you know that it's looking dim for his prospects. I wish KK would just tell everyone either way what's happened to him. But she's KK so I don't count on it.
* * * * *

I am pretty sure that poor Shoka is gone but Kate doesn't want to come out and admit he's gone. We've had many dogs over the years, and my sister specifically has had German Shepherds (three). In only one instance, did we have a dog that "hunted" and it was a Boxer who was city bred and raised. When we moved to the country, he didn't know what to make of the open space, the chickens and the sheep. He did chase the livestock and couldn't be trained not to - so we found a good home for him with people living in town. It was very sad to let him go - he was a wonderful dog in all other respects.

When Kate would describe Shoka going hunting for wild critters on her property - it just sounded so odd to me. A dog that is properly fed will usually not hunt animals. I think the poor dog was so horribly uncared for, he could well have been starving which led him to look for food wherever possible. Given Kate's disturbing focus on limiting food, I would not be at all surprised to learn she limited the food given to the dog.

Anyway, her continued refusal to talk anymore about Shoka, post a picture for Milo, or otherwise acknowledge the elephant in the room, all points to Shoka having become ill and probably put down. At best, I hope she merely gave him up to a shelter or Humane Society, or back to the breeder, and a new home found for the poor dog.

Hummm. I don't know about what ROL has to say. I don't doubt that KK is filming something new, which she and the make-up lady discussed on twitter. I just took this quote ''Hoffman, who previously reported Kate to Child Protective Services, now says he has heard that Kate is continuing to “exploit and humiliate” her eight children by filming a new reality show'' to mean that whatever KK is doing would humiliate her children. I'm not convinced that the children are an actual part of what KK is doing. Something just sounds 'off' to me about the ROL thing.

Please stay safe everyone. I'm thinking of you and praying for you all.

per person in the house per day. 70

Oh for crap sake. I worked on an EGG FARM that SOLD eggs to stores.
THEY had around 50 chickens.

Riding out the storm - heavy rain and wind. Still have pwer. Fingers crossed

JoyinVirginia said...

Thanks to all thinking about us east coasters! I know everyone is focused on landfall of the eye, but this monster Sandy is EIGHT HUNDRED MILES ACROSS! By the time the eye out center of the storm gets there, torrential rains, winds, and flooding will already have happened!
From local sources: flooding scattered because of rain and high tides, anyone living near a creek, river, gully, not just the ocean needs to watch water levels. Remember, DO NOT DRIVE THRU STANDING WATER. You never know how deep it is, how fast the current, and if the road under the water has been washed out.
Y'all remember our virtual beach trip to the Outer Banks? Our house in Nags Head is ok. However, south of there, from the Oregon inlet Bridge for the next sixteen miles! NC route twelve, the ONLY road into Hatteras Island, is UNDERWATER. Sixteen miles of road is under the water of the Atlantic Ocean and the Albemarle Sound. Flooding at Buxton on Hatteras. At least one ocean front house in Rodanthe has fallen into the ocean. The island of Ocracoke was inundated. People on Ocracoke and hatteras islands are stuck there, there will be no transportation on or off until Tuesday our Wednesday. Only good news, NC dept of transportation went thru this last year with Irene and have emergency hatteras ferry at Stumpy Point (yes that's the name) all ready to go when wind and tide permit.
I just watched the NJ governor, I am glad he is not sending first responders out in the middle of the storm. When hurricane Isabel was approaching OBX years ago, for people who would not leave, sheriff deputies asked people to write their names on arms with a Sharpie, told them it was to help with identifying their bodies after the storm hit. You don't leave in time, stay put and stay out if the water.
I'm near Richmond VA and is rainy, windy, but doing ok. Friends in Norfolk are ok, scattered flooding there, some highways closed because of water. Communities up and down the Chesapeake Bay have flooding in low areas. Everyone in path of storm, stay safe!

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said... 72

she can't put the children on film anywhere unless Jon agrees.....and I just can't see him allowing it.

&&&

Sadly I wish Jon had veto power but that's not how it works. Jon could hate it and protest as much as he wants. All Kate has to do is go to the judge and overrule him. Jon is again out a bunch of attorneys fees, money, etc only to lose again. And if all she wants to do is film a little pilot with the kids making a little cameo when they haven't filmed in 12 months, as long as THEIR part is safe and wholesome, their money is protected, they are getting their education, I hate to say it but I can't see any judge finding that unreasonable.

I think any filming of these kids PERIOD should be off limits after what they've been through but I highly, highly doubt a judge would see it that way. Judges, most of them, don't see themselves on the bench to dictate what would be the best possible course of action the best possible parent would take. That's just not the standard, for better or worse. It can be very frustrating when you, as a parent, do hat the best possible decisions made for your kids, not just "good enough" ones.
October 29, 2012 8:32 AM

Ha! Jon can't veto anything anymore! No matter how you word it, the fact is that Jon has no veto power over filming anymore; his greed got the best of him.

BTW Ask RH if Jon is still looking for his big break back into stardom.

JoyinVirginia said...

My thoughts about chickens: Ms Kreider might have 55 chickens in her four freezers. If she has five living chickens I would be shocked. Because she doesn't have the sense necessary to care for a pet rock, let alone a living critter. Which is why I think the dog is not there. I actually have my doubts that any children are there. Remember RH says most of the tweets are lies. Just to clarify, I don't care if Ms Kreider less or not, she is so boring and despicable.

Kate alluded to something occurring the past few weeks, but it is safe to assume that the kids were with their dad and attending school during the same time frame.

Hoping everyone in the East is weathering the storm okay. Scary stuff on weather channel. I am almost ashamed of the beautiful weather we had today, and the irony was not lost on me as I went about my day.
Thanks to JoyinVA for the updates. I believe I saw the footage of the NC house being swept into the sea. horrible.

“I don't know anything for fact… I got a call from a source who told me about Kate filming the kids with someone else in the past two weeks for a new reality show. The person is a big name,” Hoffman told Radar exclusively.


&&&&&&&&&&

This is the quote from ROL that bothers me. It says THE KIDS HAVE BEEN FILMING, not just Kate. Hmmm...


*******************

My money is on the Kardashians. Kim will be supervising the twins as they bond with the Jenner teens over make up and push up bras and coochie skirts and how to work it, girl; and Kate will be filming something with Kris lamenting about their latest boob jobs, botox, facelifts, and the horrors of the media they each so crave.

Oh and the 2 main topics? life with reality TV, and Kate is horny. So, your basic Disney family programming. (and she'll throw out there how it is all Jon's fault they are stuck in boring PA where poor Katie cant find so much as a suitable burger flipping job.)

Our firepit is back home. HunnyBunny chased it all the way to Texas, had BBQ at Aggiemom's, and then carried the firepit home. It is now bungie-corded (is that a word) to the dog fence.

IF Kate is filming a dating show the kids will be humilated when she forces them to perform like so many trained monkeys for the "do the 8 like him or not?" portion of the show. I can't see any other type of reality show with the kids. They've lost that toddler appeal.

We lost our power for a little while but it came back on again....I can't believe it. I think we must be along the south wall because I'm watching the effects along the coast of CT so the north wall must be huge with most of the winds and rain. We're getting wind and rain but when the north wall cycles around to us....that's probably when it will really get bad.

I can't believe we still have power when I see the wind gusts out there. Wonder what time the north wall is due to cycle around to us. Wish I understood meteorology better.

Just watched Gov. Christie of NJ....he's apparently really ticked at the mayor of Atlantic City because he apparently told the citizens there they could stay even though they had been ordered to evacuate(?).
He said that he won't risk sending first responders there until tomorrow morning....too dangerous....and those in AC are on their own until then.
Boy, that Gov. Christie is great in an emergency.

Buttercup~do you still have power?

If I disappear for days....the power is out as I have no other internet access other than my desktop.

Pre-Sandy.....that picture could have been taken months ago. Kate is very careful when crafting her words. Pre-Sandy indeed. If you're going to tweet a picture why not one of Shoka in the house with you now enjoying all the attention you're lavishing on her Kate?

lol! Is that what it is? Why would her dog wear a raincoat? She doesn't seem like buying a raincoat for a dog would be a priority. How is that saving money?

My kids wear shorts on Christmas Day...sandals year round. I have to hide them (the sandals, not the kids). I think it's a kid thing. They think it's perpetually summer.

Hi everyone,
I'm just checking in. Busy washing & drying clothes while I can. Thanks for all the hurricane tips yesterday. (My freezer is filled with ziploc gallon bags (@ziploc) full of frozen water, the bathtub is full of water, and I filled up all the empty plastic soda/vinegar/other plastic bottles from my recycling bin with water for flushing toilets.
I've been watching the waytootall tree 2 houses up the street swaying back & forth over the neighbors' house (they have their cars parked under it!!). =:o
Hope everyone stays safe!!

Call Me Crazy said...

South Jersey checking in. Thank you, everyone, for sending your good thoughts and wishes to those of us on the East Coast.

This storm is proving to be incredibly fickle. My power is currently still on (knock wood), but family just a few miles away are in the dark. My boss lives close to the shore, and it sounds like his small town is experiencing Armageddon - trees down everywhere; 90-mph winds. He is hunkered down in his basement.

Other boss's sister had a tree fall and rip all the power lines off her house. The tree is blocking the road, but the police said not to expect help any time soon.

A large section of the AC boardwalk has been destroyed.

I feel very lucky right now. Peace and safety to all.

***********************************************

I wonder what kind of excuse Milo will give to all of Kate's Tweeties when and if she ever finds out the truth about what may have happened to Shoka. Milo spreads excuses around for Kate like it's peanut butter. And, I also wonder, if something has happened to poor Shoka, if Milo will still be such a fan. This is killing Milo and I feel sorry for her/him. Kate is such a bitch.
&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

It was all Jon's fault. He up -n- deserted a hot rockyin healthy cookin devoted momma with 8 count em eight babies and the dogs. How could she possibly manage all of that plus try to earn a tiny modest livin'. She tried, she really did but it was all just too much for super-her. And the reason she lied and lied and lied about it was because she was so overcome with grief about it all that she just couldnt talk about it.

And no matter what will out, Milo will concoct some big fantasy scenario about Kate interviewing prospective owners for Shoka,for months, agonizing over who to choose, driving hither thither and yon to do home evals, running expensive background checks on her own dime, and giving him away with a year's worth of free food and medical care to someone who owns a 1000 acre horse ranch. In downtown Pittsburg. So Kate can faithfully take the children to play with him every single Saturday. Milo will carry on for a Grow-a-Boyfriend's obsession about how devasted Kate was to have to give up the dog but she had to do what was best for her kids. Please send gift cards. #KateGosselinPetLoverOfTheYear

Glad to hear from you, hon!

I dont know New Jersey very well, but I have a friend in Hackensack? His mom is safe in a nursing home in Teaneck? And his wife is in the hospital! He said the heck with this, so he checked into a hotel as far inland as he dared. I only know how to get to his house and back again.

Last time a hurricane slammed into that area he and his wife came here to Ohio and stayed with us. Right now he says his room is high enough up not to flood, but not so high up he worries about the roof going. Power is out in the hotel, but the resturant/bar is open with candles and it's like a party. They are charging for liquor but tons of free food for guests.

------------------------
Boy, he has really been impressive during this storm. He not only takes control but he has that sort of personality that makes you feel he could be your next door neighbor....or the guy sitting next to you at a restaurant counter. I'd not been all that familiar with him since I live in DE and not NJ but I am hugely impressed. And he's been VERY visible for days and days....not just the past few days. He's been on top of this from the beginning.

He's got that kinda "big bear" quality to him and appears totally in control and handling things....but he maintains a familiarity with his audience that makes you totally believe everything he says. When asked questions, he's very spontaneous...doesn't hem and haw....seems like he says exactly what he thinks.

I've learned quite a bit about governing during an emergency just from watching him...and also Mayor Nutter in Philly....who's also done a pretty darn good job, I think. Be visible, be available, be in control, be reassuring but firm.

Boy, that's for sure. I saw on site reporters at AC with howling winds and the power was still on (this was near the Showboat Casino). The darn traffic light was dangling and swinging back and forth wildly....but still ON. I couldn't believe it.

And I still can't believe we still have power....it's just amazing, considering the way the trees are blowing out there. I keep expecting it to go off again any minute. I would have bet money yesterday that we'd be in the dark by now.

I really can't believe how lucky we've been!

Layla said...

Who is Kate supposed to be filming with? I just don't see Kim K doing anything with the likes of Kate. She's much too big a name right now, she doesn't need Kate dragging her down. I tend to think it's someone who used to be big, and is still well-known and in need of a paycheck. Could it be Pamela Anderson? She meets RH's description, she"s still a big name, and she doesn't have a current show and may be in need of a payday. I don't think she likes Kate at all, but if she needs the money, she may put up with her. Both divorced, about the same age, surgically-enhanced, famous (infamous?) moms looking for men. And Pam's in LA. Makes a lot more sense than Kim K.Kim K has no need or use for the likes of Kate.

I do believe the picture was taken before the weather turned harsh. But I don't believe "pre-Sandy" means anytime in the recent past.

Not a gosselin fan said...

All Kate has to do with the chickens is call a farmer(Amish) and he kills the chickens, cleans, packages and flash freezes it and returns it to her. That is what we do in Lancaster and upstate PA too. So she is saving on buying organic chicken by raising organic chickens.
Not telling anyone about the dog is about security. No one knows she has a security dog. This dog was never brought there to play with. The dog is for security purposes. There are many breeders in her area but they provide good dogs that are not to be played with and serve as security dogs. Don't expect Kate to talk about how many dogs she has. How does Robert know about Kate filming in Florida? The kids tell Jon and Jon tells Robert. So Robert puts that info on Gosselinbook.com

Hi everyone. Long time reader, first time poster. Prayers go out to all of you on the east coast....

I believe the Kardashians have produced a show independent of their own reality shows before. It could be it is a dating show that is being filmed. I can't imagine any sane guy signing up for it. Would have to be paid alot of money!

Yeah, that sounds just like him. Heck, I'm a democrat and I sure would vote for him now. Really, really impressive. I certainly have to give credit where credit is due.

Not real impressed with our governor during this.....and I think he's up for re-election this year too. Just can't understand why someone up for re-election.....not to boot, literally a week until the elections....wouldn't take the opportunity during an emergency like this to make himself visible. He finally showed up and did a presser today. Who knows? Maybe he was doing a fantastic job behind the scenes......but why he wouldn't take the opportunity to be visible the past few days is beyond me. Publicity like that would be better than any TV ads he could pay for.

I couldn't understand why almost every single state in this area had declared a state of emergency except us. In fact, the president declared us this morning. I'm sure there are financial reasons behind this....but here was little tiny DE, right in the line of fire and with every single surrounding state already declared....but not us.

I hate when people spell "whoa" like that........"woah". Is that an actual word?

Flight of the Kiwi said...

Why must Kate be so cruel? Her games are sadistic. She knows full well the Shoka "mystery" keeps people talking about her. It is just sick. That 957th pink phone gorilla has glued to her ear is sufficient to snap a quick photo of the dog. If there.

Telling the kids they wouldn't be Gosselin's anymore if they didn't leave camping in Alaska, the Jesus wouldn't love them if they did this that or the other, screwing with their little minds every chance she got. For her amusement. Now she's at it again mentally torturing some of her most loyal fans.

This is horrible trait of hers is particularly nasty.

Just spoke with my son who lives nearby and they still have power...but he he's following some sort of weather app. on one of his gadgets and he says something like the eye is supposed to pass over us in the next few hours and he thinks we'll lose power when that happens. :(

Sentinel's Creed: “Through the years of diligence and praise and the discomfort of the elements, I will walk my tour in humble reverence to the best of my ability."

And as for the sadistic teasing, it's yet another symptom of her illness. Withholding is a powerful tool in the arsenal of someone who's controlling. Want to bring the weak into your fold, hold strays and rebellious sorts at bay? Withhold affection, approval, affiliation...all equally effective. Sound familiar?

I am sure there are some YouTube videos.

It is a privilege to see the exchange. Yes, you do cry.

Bad here in CT. Still have power. I hope we don't lose it, after 1 year ago being without electricity for 6 nights. It got a little old with 2 kids at home and the house freezing at night. Also no showers or cooking. We drove to the local high school for an occasional shower and went to Big Y to use the bathrooms every a.m.

When someone mentioned over Memorial Day weekend (which Kate failed to tweet about, of course) about the movie Taking Chance, I watched a few clips on youtube, which then linked to the Changing of the Guard clips...I watched them all weekend and wept (nope, didn't sob).
I have a son-in-law that is a Naval officer. I am very proud of him. And proud of my daughter too, who is braving this weather alone with their infant daughter while he is on duty in the waters of Norfolk.
