I'm in western Pennsylvania, and it looks as if Sandy and the cold front will meet over this part of the state. We have a generator, so if the power goes off, we have back up to keep the freezer going and to cook.
For those who have freezers and want to keep losses as low as possible, start prepping your freezer now. Arrange everything so that it is close together. Fill plastic bottles with water and set them in to freeze. You could also fill zip lock bags with water, double bag them, and place them over/under the frozen food and then freeze. Then when the power goes off, DO NOT OPEN the freezer until the power comes back on. Your freezer is well insulated and will hold the cold in for a good while if no one is constantly checking it. Then once the power is back on, check to see what has thawed. Stuff that is completely thawed should be used right away or thrown out depending on how long the power was off, slightly thawed stuff can be refrozen. We run our generator during the day and turned it off at night and the only things in our freezer that suffered was the ice cream, and it wasn't that bad, just harder to scoop.
With all the fuss that's being made about this storm, with all the preparations being made for it, it wouldn't supprise me if it suddenly turned east and all the worry and preparation is for nothing.
