    REIKI FOR THE EAST COAST/HURRICANE PROTECTION

    Post by reikikat on Sun Oct 28, 2012 6:30 am

    Hello Everyone @ RLL

    I'm initiating a remote group session hoping to gather as many Reiki friends as I can round up to send Healing Energy to the East Coast as protection from Hurricane Sandy. We are starting at 8 pm tonight, Saturday OCT 27. Please join us - those of us in this area are suffering from much anxiety and dread.

    Thank you in advance

    Thank you from Boston will
    set my alarm to 8pm and
    expect that folks have also
    taken precautions and know
    what shelters are available
    to ride out the storm.

    My city councilor and ex marine
    sent this notice out............
    Hurricane Sandy could be a real problem real soon

    Folks:

    I just pulled this warning off the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - Sandy will move toward the East Coast Sunday night and Monday. Severe impacts are likely across a wide area including massive power outages and property damage from wind and downed trees, widespread loss of power, major transportation disruptions, flooding and even some inland snow.



    It’s not exactly clear where Sandy will hit or how hard or what the impact of a storm moving in from the Northwest will be, but it’s looking like we could have a very challenging couple of days starting next week. Flooding, downed trees, lost power and so forth are likely in many areas,specifically locations I do not know.


    In the interim, folks can prepare to mitigate problems by:



    Getting batteries and lights for power outages (NEVER, EVER, EVER use candles to provide lighting. Houses really do burn down that way). Have your emergency lights accessible so you won’t be mucking about in the dark.

    Getting extra necessities early this weekend, such as aspirin, medicine, diapers, milk, pet food, etc. I keep 15 gallons of water handy in 3 portable plastic camping containers, but I suspect I’ll never actually have to use them (they are in my garage, so if they leak it’s not a big deal. Keeping things like lots of water in portable containers could be a bigger threat for apartment dwellers than it would be worth because if they were leak it could be very damaging).

    Making sure cell phones and laptops are and remain charged (though if power goes wireless routers are likely to do so as well)

    Having a rake or shovel handy to clear out drainage systems. With all the leaves on the ground, it won’t take much for catch basins to be covered up.

    Having a saw available to do minor cutting of downed limbs where safe
    Filling up your car(s) gas tanks

    Making sure anything you don’t want to get wet is not sitting on your basement floor. In many places, you may want to move stuff out of the basement completely.

    Checking to see where your utility shutoffs are if you worry about a truly flooded basement and making sure they are accessible (i.e.- if a door is locked, make sure you know where the key is).

    Checking in with work to see if you can plan on not going into the office should the weather be truly dangerous.

    Getting extra books from the library to help fill in possible “stuck in the house” time. Having board games or similar low-power entertainment options would be a good idea as well.
    Checking in with friends and neighbors who may need some assistance in preparatory shopping or basement access

    If you have a generator, making sure it is properly installed and your fuel supply is both accessible and not likely to get spilled by accident (for example, by having a branch fall on a 5 gallon fuel container.

    Being prepared to cancel travel plans, to include Halloween, for late this weekend and into next week.

    Remember: downed wires can electrocute you, falling tree limbs can crush you and precariously perched items can maim you if you blunder into them at night, so keep safety 100% in your mind. Also, in a widespread emergency, it is likely that public safety operations will be stretched very thin, so you should be prepared to depend primarily on yourself, at least for the short term.

    There is no downside to early preparation- one can always use more batteries, milk and gas and moving stuff around in your basement is a great opportunity to toss stuff out so even if the storm fizzles in our area, there’s really nothing lost by being prepared. On the other hand, waiting too long can turn a manageable problem into a disaster and a disaster into a tragedy.

    To learn more about preparation specifics, you could go to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    I'm here in Fredericksburg Virginia area, and it's not too bad, we still have power, and it's just windy and raining. Heard Manhattan just lost a building crane though. 90 mile per hour winds I hear, in Maryland, new york, and Pennsylvania.
